New Pokemon Center Location to Open in Okinawa in August

The Pokemon Company has announced plans to open a new Pokemon Center location in Okinawa, Japan. The store will appear at the AEON MALL Okinawa Rycom and will open sometime in August 2022. It will feature a statue of Pikachu and Arcanine. Additionally, it will effectively take the place of the Pokemon Store within that same location. Outside of providing a place to purchase Pokemon-related merchandise, there will be sections of the Pokemon Center dedicated to video- and TCG-related content. [Thanks, Gamer!]

Leading up to the opening of the Pokemon Center location in Okinawa, The Pokemon Company has plans to sell commemorative merchandise. The new location will also feature exclusive merchandise that will only be available to purchase at this specific Pokemon Center. However, more information on this will be revealed at a later date.

The Pokemon Center locations serve as immersive experiences, as well as places to purchase Pokemon-related goods. For example, consumers can purchase “wedding-themed” Pikachu plushes at these locations. However, merchandise can also be purchased online.

Additionally, The Pokemon Company has released merchandise outside of these locations. This has included collaborations with brands like Build-a-Bear and UNIQLO to release exclusive items. Previously, consumers could buy t-shirts featuring unique Pokemon designs at UNIQLO.
