The ever-expanding world of Pokémon
The Pokemon news never stops coming, especially if you look towards Japan. There’s always some fun Pokémon stuff going on in that part of the world, and today brings us 3 tidbits to share.
First up is a pairing between Pokémon Company and Kandu Park for a Pokémon Center “workplace experience” that allows kids and parents to see what its like working at a Pokémon Center location. There are 10 different Pokémon to “specialize” in, and attendees will learn the ins and outs of spreading the word on Pokémon. This event will be held at Kandu Park in Aeon Mall Makuhari Shintoshin in Chiba, Japan starting December 17th, 2022, and oddly enough, merch will not be sold here!
