Pokémon Centers and Stores in Japan are Must Visit Spots for Pokemon Fans

There are many Pokemon Centers and Stores all throughout Japan. Pokémon started as a Game Boy and became an insanely popular anime. After Pokémon Go was released in July 2016, everyone with a smartphone was playing.

Pokémon has spread around the world from Japan and has acquired so many fans. There are Pokémon Centers in the video games; however, in Japan, Pokémon Centers exist for real.

Pokémon Center

They have 10 Pokémon Centers in total in the main cities and some local spots from Hokkaido to Okinawa, and they recently opened the tenth Pokémon Center in Kyoto in March 2016.

Additionally, they also have 11 small stores called “Pokémon Store”. They sell many Pokémon goods, have some events, and have some things to enjoy if you like Pokémon. Please check the website for more information about the centers and stores.

Moreover, you can get many original goods you can’t get at any other stores. For example, they have “message accessories” that depict an exact scene from the show and lines from Pokémon games and “POKÉMON with YOU Charm” the sales will be donated to the disaster-stricken people who were effected by the huge earthquake in March 2011.

The Pokémon Card battles have also been loved by many fans for a long time. Pokémon Centers sometimes hold card competitions and events, and you can get limited original goods if you join the competition and level up to a higher-rank. By the way, if you have never played the card game, they also hold lectures for beginners. You can also get some Pokémon goods if you join.

If you go to a Pokémon Center on your birthday, they have four birthday gifts for you right now. They will give you a birthday crown, a message card with an original illustration, and a coupon that gives you everything 5 percent off in the center. In addition, you can choose Pikachu, Eevee, or Comfey to bring you your own “Pokémon Sun” or “Pokémon Moon”.
