Back in January we shared the news that a brand new Pokémon Center would be opening in Japan. The big day is tomorrow, but a lucky few got the chance to attend a preview event earlier today. Take a look at some images courtesy of Twitter user @zlswsword:

The Kyoto store joins nine other Pokémon Centers throughout the country, and to celebrate the opening there are several new plushes for fans to snag.

Do you have any plans to visit any Pokémon Centers this year to celebrate the franchise’s 20th anniversary? Be sure to let us know in the comments!

Whether it’s an exciting new entry in a series long established or a weird experiment meant only for the dedicated, Tom is eager to report on it. Rest assured, if Nintendo ever announces Elite Beat Agents 2, he’ll be there.
