Pokemon Center: Osaka

Previously: Pokemon Center Tokyo

So a few days ago on Twitter Pokemon came up, as it naturally does, and I realized I hadn't yet told you fine folks about my trip to the Pokemon Center in Osaka! It (re)opened in the new City Station department store last year and was ridiculously crowded. As my friend put it, listening to children scream bloody murder is the best kind of contraceptive. Anyway, pictures behind the cut! At the store I had to use my crappy phone camera, so I apologize for the abysmal quality of some of them!




come with me, and you'll be...

in a world of pure pokemon-ination
so many hats, so few heads
sets of charms
this is an inside joke: my bff and i had almost 100 mugs in our old apt and kept buying more
aww yiss, the legendary dogs right by the BW legendaries
sup plushies?
cute babies!!
i really like the art style on these bags
you may recall the keychain i bought at the last pkmn ctr

classy ladies keep their makeup in pokemon pouches
mew looking at mew looking at - WE HAVE TO GO DEEPER

a mudkip plush to replace my last one, destroyed in a horrible barfing accident (NOT ME)

they were giving away nobunaga's shiny rayquaza but because i'm a complete turd i could not download it

  4. This is like nerd heaven. o:
    I have a question, though; were the items here expensive? For instance, how many pounds/euros/dollars would a keychain amount to?

    1. I don't have my receipt anymore, but all told I paid about 5000 yen, which I think is around 60 USD at the moment. That includes the big bag, little bag, plush, handkerchief, and keychain. I think the keychain was around 400 yen, maybe 5 USD? The sets of multiple chains were more of course :)

  5. Wooo!

    This is all so cool. Oo, look, Ash hats for sale! Everything just has a 'perfect' feel about it. As though nothing is out of place, and it looks the part!

    Really can't wait to visit myself, one-day.

    Thanks for the post!
