My wife and I chanced upon a Pokemon Center across the Sapporo train station while we were hunting for winter boots. It is located in the 8F ESTA building near the video arcades. When she went to go shoe shopping, I decided to follow the trainer in me!
As soon as you come out of the elevator you will be greeted by a big display of Piplup, Pikachu and Fennekin. On the base are familiar signatures.
Masuda-san is one of the founding members of Game Freak and produces/directs some of the games.
This signature was beside Masuda-san’s but I can’t read Japanese. If you can read it please post in the comment section.
Everywhere you look is eye candy for any fan. Lots of pics below!
I was surprised to see this ad. Apart from the reissue of Red in Championship edition to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the game, I didn’t know that they will also release both Ash and Gary. The poster says that it will be opened for preorder for about a month starting Feb. 27th and will be released in July. It seems you can only order it in Japan though.
There were a few capsule machines available but what caught my attention were the ones with Pikachu cosplaying as other Pokemons. Like other “gashapon”, what you get is random. I tried my luck and managed to get 5 of the 7. Will post pictures of them by the end of this post.
