Pokémon Center Mega Tokyo!

Pokémon Center Mega Tokyo opened in December 2014 and is the biggest Pokémon Center in Japan!

 It's based in Sunshine City in Ikebukuro (also home to J-World and Namja Town) and is a must visit for Pokéfans!

When we visited it was quite quiet - but we spotted the next generation Ash(/Satoshi) heading in... maybe he was going to pick up his first starter! ^^

The Center's mascots are the super cool Charizard and the kawaii icon Pikachu and there's a large statue of the pair:

Near the front of the store there's a *lot* of plushes:

That's a lot of Pikachu plushes!! The XY starters were also well represented:

There were other statues dotted around the store, like this Mega Charizard X:

And this Mega Lucario and Mega Mewtwo Y:

You can even buy the famous Pikachu instant noodles in the store:

Of course, we couldn't visit the Pokémon Center without splashing out a little...

First up we grabbed the Monthly Pikachu for October - an artist Pikachu!

Like most places in Tokyo, the Center was ready to celebrate Halloween, so we picked up a few limited edition items.  The Pika-Pumpkin plush mascot was a popular item:

Pinkuiropixie also picked up a set of Halloween earrings featuring Litwick, Pika-Pumpkin, Zubat and Joltik:

There was a super Kawaii range in the store called Doki Doki Contest Live, themed around the Pokémon Contest feature of the game.  This range was launched in June 2015 and we were lucky that they still had a few items in stock, including a cute pouch featuring cosplay Pikachu:

And on the other side, Mega Altaria:

Pinkuiropixie also chose some nail art stickers from the range that also featured Minun, Plusle, Sylveon as well as Pikachu and Mega Altaria:

As you'll know, we love Cosplay Pikachu and we love Pokémon Centre Charms... well what happens when you combine the two?? Cosplay Pikachu Charms!! Yes, a super Kawaii collection featuring all the different cosplay outfits for Pikachu:

Another range in the store caught Pinkuiropixie's eye - this range of quilted bags and pouches features a cute all over print of Pikachu:

These bags are great quality and really colourful - perfect for a Decora like Pinkuiropixie!

We also picked up His and Hers carabiners in a Pikachu shape <3

Mr chose a pixel Pikachu lanyard - it brought back memories from when he played an American import of Pokémon Blue before it came out in the UK! (although in those days Pokémon wasn't in colour!!)

Pinkuiropixie chose these super cute hair clips featuring comic-style Pikachu and Dedenne:

Aren't they super Kawaii? ^^

Long time readers will know we love the Pokémon TCG - so Mr made sure to grab some card sleeves, including a Pokémon Center limited Pokédoll design!

Of course, we could have spent a fortune in there, but we had to make sure we could fit our purchases in our suitcases! ^^;

On the way out they have some penny squasher machines, so you can take home a kawaii Pokémon memento even if you've ran out of space in your luggage!

If you visit Tokyo you won't want to miss out on a visit to Pokémon Center Mega Tokyo!

Catch you later Kawaiisters!! ^^
Pinkuiropixie and Mr
