POP-UP POKÉMON CENTER RETAIL STORE TO OPEN IN LONDON THIS OCTOBER

BELLEVUE, Wash.—August 5, 2019—The Pokémon Company International is excited to announce its plan to open a special pop-up Pokémon Center retail location in London this October. Located in Westfield London (Ariel Way, Shepherd’s Bush W12 7GF) and open only for a limited time from October 18 to November 15* 2019, the store will give fans a chance to browse and purchase a range of Pokémon Center-branded products, including exclusive designs not found anywhere else.

The pop-up Pokémon Center London celebrates the highly anticipated launch of the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield video games for Nintendo Switch this November; paying tribute to the United Kingdom’s role in inspiring the design and feel of the all-new Galar region players will explore in the games.

Further details on opening times, products available to purchase and additional in-store activities will be revealed in the coming months.

While fans will need to visit the Pokemon Center London pop-up for the exclusive designs, in the US, PokemonCenter.com is the ecommerce arm of The Pokémon Company International and the online destination for premier Pokémon merchandise.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield will be released worldwide on November 15, 2019, exclusively for Nintendo Switch.

About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.
