While dedicated Pokémon retail stores are nothing new, we don’t usually see existing convenience stores get taken over by the little monsters. Yet that’s exactly what happened with a Taiwanese 7-Eleven that has received an official makeover featuring the likes of Pikachu and Bulbasaur.
The makeover, which took place at the 7-Eleven on Fuzhong Road, Banqiao District, went beyond including some fun art on the walls and shelves. Loads of merchandise, as well as Switch demo kiosks and some Pokémon Ga-Olé arcade machines were all brought on. The other half of the store is still an average Taiwanese 7-Eleven, so people looking for some chips are still in luck. Hopefully this idea spreads to America, as I would love to see the likes of Machamp hanging out by the little rotating hot dogs while I’m buying a Coke and cherry Slurpee and a plush Hitmonlee.
