Pikachu and Friends are Lighting Up the Night at the Sagamiko Illumillion!

Posted on December 7, 2020

You might remember the Sagamiko Illumillion from our 2020 guide to illuminations; as spectacular as their illuminations already are, this year they bring us a very special Pokemon collaboration!

Before you even reach the gates of the Pokemon Illumination, you will need to take a quick ride on the Eevee Friends Rainbow Chairlift. (Please note that access to the Pokemon Illumination will cost an extra 700 yen, on top of the standard admission fee to the Sagamiko Illumillion)

So many vibrant colors! Can you match the color to the eeveelution?

After this quick trip up the chairlift, Pikachu and Pichu are ready to greet you at the gates.

Although the park is full of festivity during the day, once the sun sets and the illuminations are lit, it truly transforms into something magical.

Now that you’ve met with Pikachu and Pichu, your next stop will be to pass through Pokemon Street; here are some of the other Pokemon you can expect to see along the way:

Charmander and Eevee seem to be enjoying a cozy nap by the campfire, while Snorlax is being his normal lazy self. Just on the other side of the street, you can see Grookey, Scorbunny, and Sobble around a campfire as well. What kind of curry could they be cooking up?

Now you’ve reached Pokemon Street! Here you’ll find great backdrops to take the perfect illumination photos!

Before you reach Pikachu’s Forest of Light, you may find some of your favorite ghost types lurking in the dark…

Last, but definitely not least, is Pikachu’s Forest of Light; you’ll encounter plenty of Pikachus, and also have the opportunity to watch a Pikachu performance!

Pikachu’s performance is only once a day, so don’t miss your only chance to see him!

Even from a distance, you can spot Gigantamax Pikachu in his den. Have you caught a Gigantamax Pikachu in game yet?

Up close, G-max Pikachu is even bigger than you can imagine! His tail is is brightly lit and hangs higher than the rest of his body!

The Pokemon Illumination and the Sagamiko Illumillion are both open until April 4th, so be sure to stop by while you have the chance. Not only are there fewer illuminations open this year, but how many others are Pokemon themed?
