In the game "Pokémon Centers" are facilities that can be used to restore your Pokémon back to full health. With that in mind, the "Pokémon Center FUKUOKA" was created as a place where people who love Pokémon could get a little pick me up and as you might expect welcomes fans of the game from all age groups. Read on to find-out more about the interior of this store, which is filled with pokémon whichever way you look!

The Fukuoka branch welcomes many shoppers from overseas, particularly from Asia and South East Asia. For customers from abroad, it seems that goods covered in Pikachu-related designs are extremely popular.

The theme changes over on a monthly basis and on this occasion it was cuddly toys from the "Monthly Pair Pikachu" series that were being promoted. May was Magikarp/Koiking (made by trainers), June was rain and July was the sea. It's so cool how they are chosen to match the seasons. The Pikachus in the photograph are dressed to take part in Septembers "Otsukimi (Moon Viewing)" event. And also check-out the designs that depict a female Pikachu with a heart shaped point at the end of her tail!

2016 marks 20 years since Pokémon first started with the release of "Pokémon Red and Green" on the Game Boy. There are some items inside the store with designs based on the pixelated graphics from that game, which are sure to be a massive hit with core fans that played that initial release. Games with those kinds of graphics really encouraged gamers to use and expand the power of their imagination, don't you think?

Goods that feature "Migawari (Substitute)"-related designs have also gone down a storm with core fans. You can find 2 different "Migawari (Substitute)"-related designs. One design depicts Pokemon with their precious Migawari in their everyday life. And the other simply focuses on Migawari in a dynamic way.
