The Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo is the ultimate destination for any Pokemon fans. Whether you’re a fan of the Pokemon video games, the massive trading card game or just a casual fan who loves Pokemon Go and collecting merch, the Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo has something for everyone.

The biggest Pokemon Center in the world has exclusive content that can’t be found anywhere else. Feeling like you want to make the trip over? Here are the main areas of the Sunshine City Pokemon Center so you can better plan your dream Pokemon trip!

Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo

Sunshine City, in Ikebukuro, Tokyo, is a massive shopping center with numerous attractions, including an aquarium, a planetarium, and a wide array of shops. This towering 60-story landmark has evolved into a mecca for otaku culture. A prime illustration of its offerings is the Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo.

The world’s largest Pokemon Center offers world-exclusive merchandise and Pokemon-themed food, entertainment, and competitive game-playing! It’s the perfect place to visit if you want a fun day out to enjoy some Pokemon goodness or if you’re looking to battle other Pokemon trainers, too! Just make sure to bring plenty of money!

Pikachu Sweets Café

After a day of exploring Sunshine City, you might crave some Pokemon snacks. You can head to Pikachu Sweets Café for themed treats and desserts. You can find super cute Pokemon cookies, cakes, drinks, and more there!

And if getting Pokemon snacks and desserts wasn’t enough, visitors can also buy tons of exclusive Pokemon merchandise, such as keychains, bags, cups, and more. Eating tasty Pokemon treats is a blast, and bringing home some sweet toys is incredible, too.

Pokemon GO Lab

Released in 2016, Pokemon Go has allowed Pokemon fans to become real-life trainers using their phones to find, catch, and battle with their Pokemon. The Pokemon Go Lab functions as both a giant store where you can buy some cool Pokemon Go gear and as a place to play the game.

Naturally, there are a ton of Pokemon to catch in the area, and players can also meet up and battle one another if they’re hankering for a battle! Show off your top-notch Pokemon Go skills and rep your Pokemon Go team with pride and style by getting an official Team shirt (let’s go, Team Instinct! No shelter from the storm!)

Pokemon Trading Card Station

The Pokemon Trading Card Game has dominated the competitive trading cards since 1998. Combining the deep intricacies of strategic card battles with the lively world of Pokemon, the Pokemon Trading Card Game offers fun and excitement for players of any skill level. Both for longtime game veterans and brand-new Pokemon Trainers, the Pokemon Trading Card Station is the best place to visit if you need to get some card-playing action!

The Trading Card Station lets guests play the Pokemon Game casually or at official events. Don’t know how to play? That’s okay! Plenty of official Pokemon Concierges are available to teach new players rules about the game. The idea is to visit the Pokemon Trading Card Station and leave either as a fresh Pokemon Trainer or as a tried-and-true Pokemon Master!
