Last year, The Pokemon Company announced Pokemon Center Kyoto is going to move to a bigger and better location on March 16 as part of their “renewal” process.
To celebrate this joyous event, The Pokemon Company has announced “Pokemon Center Kyoto Moving Renewal: Flower Petal Campaign” in Japan. Let’s take a look at what activities are in store:
