Ichiban Kuji: Selectable prizes for non-blinds small prizes. Double chance included if your country carries this Kuji.

Series Sequel: 53rd Pokemon Kuji set! 2nd in 2022!

Wow it’s been a while since we last had a Pokemon Kuji! This time round the theme is set on the Pokemon gang rather than a specific Pokemon and it’s a goodnight theme, so most likely everything will be related to sleepiness, let’s see what they have for us!

For past Kuji prizes, do visit Ichiban Kuji Pokemon Full Prize Index List

Prize A (3 pieces) / Double Chance

Top Prize Appearance: 23rd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Of course we will have another Pikachu to kick start the set. Pikachu is in its sleeping posture, the plush is 30cm long, so big enough to display or hug, nothing bad, just a bit too many Pikachu but it’s fine, I mean main characters are expected in every Kuji!

You might win this via double chance too!

Prize B (3 pieces)

Top Prize Appearance: 2nd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Yayyy we finally have a rarely appeared Pokemon in the form of Yamper! This is its only 2nd time appearance as a big prize and 3rd time appearing as a plush (it had a smaller plush release before). The posture is similar to it’s stationary form just with its eyes close to fit the theme, definitely cute and nothing bad upon pulling it! Size is also 30cm long!

Prize C (3 pieces)

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Next we have blanket, which is very fitting for the theme and appealing for buyers who preferred useful items! It’s 120cm long so you can cover half of your body, but you can also use it as a floor mat if you want to see the nice art every time you step into your room! Basically nothing bad at all, a good prize overall!

Prize D (8 pieces)

Design: 2

Distribution: 4 x 2 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

We now move into the small prize section and before that we have a consolation prize, it’s neither big or small because of the distribution and in some Kuji this belongs to the big prize section, overall here there is 8 to go around! This is a fur pouch that has a zip, it is 18cm long and can store your make up items or just your smaller essentials in general, definitely can come in handy! Design wise is good, you can a grey Gengar and a Purple Galactic Ponyta to choose from!

Prize E (23 pieces)

Design: 6

Distribution: 1 x 3 pieces each. 5 x 4 pieces each. Blind box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Next we have mugs and it’s the good quality kind of mugs that is make of ceramic! The design is super nice and each has a very unique design and theme on it! Regardless which you pull, you definitely got your ticket value covered! Very nice prize and you can use it to drink some hot tea or water before going to bed to fit the theme.

Prize F (24 pieces)

Design: 2 long, 4 small

Distribution: 6 x 4 pieces each.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Next we have towels, as we all know the quality of Ichiban Kuji towel, so I shall not dwell on that. The design is pretty nice with the long towels having the better design and the small ones are not too bad, hope you got plenty of other prizes if you were to play a few tickets for this set.

Prize G (26 pieces)

Design: 10

Distribution: 6 x 3 pieces each. 4 x 2 pieces each. Blind Box.

Prize Rating:

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Lastly we have rubber charm and the design is good with each Pokemon having their Japanese name and a star in the background. Pretty standard for their charm and not too bad for a prize.

Last Prize

Top Prize Appearance: 3rd

Prize Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

How can you have a sleeping theme without Mr Snorlax here! It doesn’t even need to try hard, just lie there and fits the theme. The plush is bigger than the other 2 at 35cm long and it’s a Unique last prize so definitely worth getting if you are a fan or if spot a 7- buyout or 12- with at least one other top prizes and hopefully some pouch or mugs left.

Conclusion

An average Kuji with some good prizes overall. The top prizes are pretty decent for a Pokemon Kuji and the small prizes does have some nice ones, nothing too special, nothing too bad as well, I will say for a series that doesn’t appear very often, it’s a decent set that buyer can buy without feeling over committed.

Odds

Let’s calculate your odds to get the following with one ticket from a fresh board!

Chance to get a top prize (A to C): 9 / 90 = 10%, average.

Recommendation

3 tickets for a chance at a top prize! Hopefully you can get a mug or pouch!

Collectibles? : If you don’t have a Snorlax or Yamper, this would be a good time to get theme! The other prizes are not collectibles but if you have the chance, the pouch and mugs are really nice to keep and use.
