Get ready for a post chock full of information!


Possibly the announcement with the most hype, we finally received a run down of information on campaigns and merchandise surrounding the grand opening of the Pokemon Center in Kyoto. As with all previous Center openings (and re-openings) special limited shopping bags will be given out to customers who shop at Pokemon Centers and stores all across Japan starting from the opening date: March 16th.


Unlike previous grand openings, however, there seems to be a distinct lack of plush? These items will all be exclusive to the Kyoto Pokemon Center.

Pokemon Center Kyoto Logo Pin (630 yen + tax)
Metal Charm Set – Sitting Version (500 yen + tax)
Pin Set – Sitting Version (630 yen + tax)
Playing Cards (1,250 yen + tax)
A4 Clearfile Set – Sitting Version (500 yen + tax)

The list ends with “Etc” so there is a small chance we might get a plush announcement closer to the opening? Time will tell!


These items will be available everywhere in Japan.
