Soft Keyholders (ソフトキーホルダー) are a set of early generation figures produced by Banpresto. The 'soft' refers to their hollow quality and the light plastic they are molded with, which is similar to a Pokémon Kid. They are not squishy or fuzzy in anyway, as some might assume. The keyholders are Japanese only, but a few were imported to America during Pokemon's initial wave of popularity and random sightings have been reported.


Each set comes in one of four types: normal, clear, glow in the dark, and sound, which plays music.

Trivia Edit

  • For some unknown reason, the soft keyholder molds are frequently used for bootleg items.
  • Not to be confused with actual soft and malleable figures, which do exist!
  • These keychains are often not the typical poses and designs that Gen I Pokemon are featured in, increasing their desirability.
