The Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo has finally opened, and this one is considered the biggest one in Japan. The store has been promoted by Pikachu and Mega Charizard Y, and a life-size figure of the two of them can be seen near the shop’s entrance, greeting the customers.

…and of course, there’s Mega Charizard X as well, though he does not seem to have a Pikachu


The store opened with so much hype that waiting in line just to enter the store lasted for hours. now imagine finally lining up to buy something…

Once inside, you not only get to see the life-size versions of the Mega Charizards and Pikachu, you also get to see life-size figures of Mega Lucario and Mega Mewtwo. The name Mega Tokyo seems to be really fitting as the store really celebrates the Mega Evolutions.


As the store opened, shoppers and fans were greeted by a Pikachu mascot, who was wearing that really cute Mega Charizard Y Poncho. Several members of the staff also cosplayed as Pokemon trainers to help out.
