Sometimes it feels like a new Pokémon Center store is opening every month over in Japan, making us all envy those who live in the region — and that feeling is growing stronger as we get word of yet another location! The grand opening of Pokémon Center Mega Tokyo will take place next month, and to commemorate the occasion, the company is releasing a number of special goods.

The products in the line are everyday goods that owners can get use out of while enjoying the cuteness they all radiate. From pouches and totes to stationery and keychains, there’s plenty of options to please any Pokémon fan. Have a look at a few of our favorites:
