Jewel Changi Airport will be opening in end-March next year and according to reports, almost 90% of the retail space has already been taken up.
One of them will be the Pokémon Center!
It will be the first Pokémon Center that is located outside of Japan. There are currently 12 Pokémon Centers across Japan including Tokyo, Sapporo, Kyoto and Osaka.
Needless to say, the Pokémon Center in Singapore will feature all kinds of merchandise including video games, cards, plush toys, fashion accessories and clothes.
Expect to find life-size Pikachu mascots with photo opportunities when Pokémon Center opens here.
Here’s a video tour of the Pokémon Center TOKYO DX & Pokémon Café in Tokyo, Japan. Hope the one in Jewel Changi Airport will be half as cool.
