Pokémon Pokemon Mimikyu themed Ichiban Kuji by Bandai Spirits

Bandai Spirits has revealed the prizes for its upcoming Pokémon Mimikyu-themed Ichiban Kuji lottery coming to Japan next month.

Ichiban Kuji means “number one lottery” in Japanese. It is essentially a sure-win lottery draw that Bandai Spirits holds in Japan with a different theme each month. The next one will begin on September 11, and it’ll feature various goods based on our favorite Disguise Pokémon Mimikyu.

Here’s how it works: Participants can purchase as many tickets they want for 650 yen ($5.95) for a chance to win various prizes. The prizes come in different tiers, and they usually feature exclusive items that you won’t find anywhere else.
