I got to test out the Pokémon Pop Action Poké Ball Launcher (Wicked Cool Toys), and I like it a lot. It comes with launching Pikachu mini-plush and Poke ball.
When you pull back the string and let it fly, it can travel about 10 feet or so. It is a soft toy so no one gets hurt by the Pokémon. There are four characters to choose from: Litten, Pikachu, Popplio and Rowlet. My only little problem is with the string — sometimes it snaps back and that can hurt a little.
