The Pearlescent Charmander is the latest Pokemon in the line of Pop! Vinyl Figures by Funko. Charmander is one of the most beloved creatures from the franchise, especially owing to the anime, where the protagonist, Ash, saved one from dying. The two became really good friends, and Charizard, its final evolution, became one of his strongest and most iconic partners.

For these reasons, a Charmander Pop! toy will be of great interest to fans of the franchise. While there has been a toy like this before, The Pokemon Company released a new Pearlescent Charmander in collaboration with Funko on June 22, 2023. This one comes with a new sheen giving it a pearl-like appeal.

How much does the Pearlescent Charmander cost?

The latest Charmander Pop! toy from Funko comes with a price tag of $14.99. It is currently exclusively available on the Pokemon Center website. This is a slight hike from the original toy from the same brand, which costs $12.00 on the official Funko website.

The two toys are identical for all practical purposes. They both feature Charmander's orange body, pale yellow underbelly, and iconic fiery tail. The only difference which makes the new, more expensive version stand out is its smooth, shiny coating.
