This new campaign will feature Pokemon characters brought to life, a kid’s play space, and tons of decorations that will immerse visitors in the world of Pokemon. Each day, different Pokemon will “appear” to play on the 2nd floor of Sunshine City Alpa, where the renewed Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo is located. Visitors will be able to interact with various popular Pokemon.

Additionally, there will be a collectable sticker campaign during the first month of the renewal. 12 different patterns will be available, each with different Pokemon designs. Participants can receive one sticker a day from various locations within the shopping mall.

While in the Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo, visitors and trainers alike can enjoy a ton of new merchandise, including mini tote bags, flat pouches,pouches, and limited edition items with new designs. This is in addition to the regular merchandise offered at Pokemon Centers across Japan.

Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo is located in Sunshine City Alpa’s 2th floor. The renewal celebration will last from March 6 to March 29, 2020. Sunshine City’s hours are 10am to 8 pm JST.

Also, as a reminder, don’t forget the other Pokemon events coming up. Pokemon Day will be held on February 27, 2020. A new mythical Pokemon will be revealed as part of the celebration.
