...In Japan, that is. What, you thought Nintendo would cater to the remaining Pokemon fans in the States? HA!

Anyway, Kotaku reports on the new center, which will be opening up in Sapporo on March 6. If history is any guide, the center will feature a whole hell of a lot of Pokemon goodies for sale, and on the opening day they'll also be giving away as many as a thousand different prizes, too. So if you're a Pokefan, be sure to hit up this family-friendly tourist spot. Because Pokemon isn't over, or “so early 2000s,” or any of those other things people keep telling me. IT'S NOT IT'S NOT IT'S NOT.

It's not over. It's not.

But seriously, I like the design from the pic. Very clean and neat. Almost Apple Store-ish.

Lately I've been seeing a pair of kids and their mother on the subway on my way to school. They were trading Pokemon cards once. I was thinking that I did that ten years ago too. Then I suddenly felt nostalgic.

Nintendo World in NYC used to be a Pokemon Center...

Good old days.

Oh man... I'd love to go there!

It feels unusually empty though... it seems like there should be more to the center. Maybe it's actually made smaller for day to day visitors... like a smaller store *shrugs*

Would be a sweet place to go and play some magic *laughs*
