7-11 Movie Lottery
Every summer, 7-11s in Japan do a lottery for movie items that are only available to be won in this lottery! The grand prize is a huge figure of whatever Pokemon is the star of the film. But smaller prizes that are available are straps, plushes, keychains, clearfiles, bags, cups and even toasters!
Pokemon Time is a very popular promotion that is runs every year. All of the items are in this cartoony style, designed by Play Set Products exclusively for Japanese Pokemon Centers.

Some examples of Pokemon Center promotions:
The Maggyo promotion was ran in May 2012. All of the items featured Maggyo/Stunfisk, such as slippers, socks, chop stick holders, charms, stickers, plush, pillows, floor mats and many other things! Items from this promotion are fairly scarce now.
Every holiday season, the Pokemon Centers in Japan do a promotion with Christmas themed plushes and other items.
Just like the Christmas promo, they also do one for Halloween!
The Pokemon Center's Cafe promotion was launched on May 28th, 2012, with the theme of the 3 monkeys acting as waiters.
