The Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo is the newest and one of the largest Pokemon stores in Tokyo, located on the 2nd floor of Sunshine City Alpa in Ikebukuro. It will also be getting a take-out desserts shop called Pikachu Sweets, the first official Pokemon GO Lab, and Pokemon Card Station, all scheduled to open on December 19, 2019.
What you can expect at Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo
You’ll find a huge range of merch from large and small plushes, keychains, pokeballs, and even limited edition exclusive merch that you won’t be able to get elsewhere. You could literally catch them all if you want to here. Prepare your wallet though! Pricing could be higher on items that you could get cheaper elsewhere.
This Pokemon center can tend to get very crowded, especially on weekends and during any special events or holidays with lines to checkout that wrap outside the store and around the corner.
The good news is the staff is generally very friendly with many that can speak English but you may want to give them a break once you see the overwhelming crowds they have to deal with.
This Pokemon Center is definitely worth visiting if you’re a Pokemon fan and a great place to stop by if you’re already visiting Sunshine City for shopping, to see the Sunshine Aquarium, the Sky Circus Observatory or Namjatown.
