Opening roughly a year after the Shibuya PARCO’s Pokemon Center, the Kanazawa store proudly displays the beautiful Milotic and an elegant Pikachu sporting a bright kimono.

While the opening of the Shibuya store brought fresh graffiti-style Pikachu goods, the Kanazawa store is filled with vibrant kimono Pikachus and other Kanazawa themed goods (don’t worry, even if you can’t go to the Kanazawa store, they’re available nationwide while stock lasts!).

Did you notice anything different about the Kanazawa Pikachu? It’s heart shaped tail shows that this Pikachu is a girl!

The Kanazawa Pokemon Center is open from 10AM to 9PM, and is only a minute walk from the JR Kanazawa station, so be sure to visit Pikachu, Milotic, and all your favorite Pokemon friends- and be sure to pick up your copy of Sword or Shield if you haven’t had the chance to yet!
