Pokemon Center Shibuya

Pokemon Center Shibuya, themed to be hip and modern like the rest of the town

A new Pokemon center is in Shibuya, Tokyo, located next to the new Official Nintendo Store Tokyo on the 6th floor of the Parco Building. It’s the 5th official Pokemon center in Tokyo.

What’s up at Pokemon Center Shibuya

Each Pokemon store features a large Pokemon out front to greet visitors and the Shibuya Pokemon store has a large Mewtwo! The store opened on Nov 22nd and had a long line just to get in. It’s cleared up in recent times, but expect some congestion on weekends and holidays. During the opening period, they were handing out a special Shibuya Pikachu trading card at the other Pokemon Centers. Cool promo.

Unlike some of the others, the Shibuya Pokemon Center has a unique kind of branding that makes it look sleek, modern, and hip. They have a lot of clothing and accessories, opting for a dark and hip feel over happy-go-lucky.
