Video Tour of the New Skytree Town Pokémon Center

I had a lot of fun touring the Pokémon Center which just opened last Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan (this was filmed two days later on Friday). It smaller than the Mega Pokémon Center in Ikebukuro, but the Rayquaza and Shiny Rayquaza statues are quite amazing.

Please enjoy watching and thanks to my friend Aaron for helping me out!

FEATURED DISCUSSION: How Do You Play Pokémon?

  1. I would so be broke if I went here….but I want to go so bad D;

    I NEED ALL THE PLUSHIES

  2. The Skytree has been on my list of places to visit for years. Now I have even more of a reason to visit 😀

    So many plashes o.o I need a Ninetales plushie. I’d buy almost everything in that video if I had the money

  3. Japan’s been my dream vacation spot since 4th grade. One of the reasons for that is the Pokémon Centers. That’ll be one of the first vacations I take when I’m older.

  4. At 00:44 am I looking at Pokemon cigars? If so I may take up smoking cigars lol

          1. They did exist, they still do, but are banned from most general markets for obvious reasons, but yeah, people can be sneaky…

  5. Part of me feels really bad for the dudes who have to wear those life-size costumes.
    The other part is really happy because their movements are so adorable!! 🙂

  6. I would love to visit this one day, it looks amazing. I’d spend all my money though, so I guess it’s better not to.

  7. Hey when’s corocoro supposed to leak? Its gotta be nearly there, right?

    On topic, i really wish we had these stores in the states….

  8. Ash will win Kalos league and gets an invitation to come to Alola and help build a league there. Its either that, or the by Cynthia once mentioned ”Champions League”

    1. Or he and Greninja will be pushed to the absolute limit during his match and collapse
      And Greninja might run away or something

      1. Well there were 6 new data broadcasts revealed, and the last one was Greninja. So XYZ043 will revolve around a Greninja, probably Ash’s. People already theorized Ash will release it so it can protect the Ninja village. Personally think Sanpei will return and explain the exact origins of AG and what it is.

        1. Doubt the origins will be explained and the actual concept wouldn’t be of Ash-Greninja at that point it would be what the actual phenomena is called. Because Ash-Greninja is Ash specific and needs to stop being used.

        1. Leaving Ash and being released are the same thing in Ash’s case, because he’s a spineless moron.

      1. 20th anniversary, they will let him win it to please the fans, and then turn him back into some novice little shit in Alola.

    2. Ash is incompetent a lot of the time though, but maybe he’ll pull himself together 😛

  9. O.O <3 <3
    I want the whole store, please thank you.
    One of the many reasons I want to go to Japan, like please thank you bai.

          1. Actually that’s not really how “your own” business works for the purposes of taking stuff from it.

            Ideally, you still have to pay out of your own wallet so that it goes through the normal stuff: taxes, inventory, etc. After all, you should still be counted as a customer for the purposes of “people wanting the stuff”.

            Then after that you can just take what you paid for it from your equity (take based on ownership).

  10. This is off topic, but what is the rarest thing you’ve caught (not hatched) in GO so far? I’m asking because I just caught a Venasaur! Even though I wasted ~150 pokeballs on it, it was worth it.

    1. Just caught an Electabuzz a half hour ago. I’m cool like that hahaha

    2. the only thing I’ve caught is envy for the countries that have it T_T

    3. I caught 4 Clefairy, a Rhyhorn, and Krabby, as well as a Squirtle and Jigglypuff and my brother missed finding Dragonite

  11. My wallet would cry if I came near all those plushes. Gotta buy ’em all!

    Side note: Woo, I created the featured discussion (months ago, but still)!

  12. Hmm. We haven’t had any confirmed Ground, Ice, Dark, or Fighting types yet. I hope we get some, if not all of these roles filled when Corocoro comes around.

    1. I’m surprised you managed to leave unscathed
      Shame on those Mankey and Machop, they clearly outnumbered you and still lost

      1. I know ur going to say that ……I am not fairies hater but I would love to add more violent stuff in pkmn world.

        1. Obviously, both of Salandit’s STABs is super effective against Cutiefly 😛

  13. Off topic: what’s everyone’s least favorite pokemon of each type? You dont have to list all 18, its just interesting to see how opinions differ.

    1. My least favorite type is electric because I hate getting paralyzed by them :/

    2. For me:
      Psychic: Gothita line.
      Ice: Vanilish line.
      Fighting: Timburr line.
      Bug: Volbeat and Illumise.
      Poison: Skorupi line.
      Water: Panpour line.
      Steel: Klink line.
      Normal: Diggersby.
      Fairy: Aromatisse.
      Ground: Excadrill
      Rock: Probopass
      Fire: Darumaka line.
      Grass: Ferroseed line.
      Electric: Emolga.
      Dark: Scraggy line.
      Dragon: Black and White Kyurem
      Ghost: Frillish line.
      Flying: The Legendary Genie trio.

      Apparently my least favorites lie with gen 5. There’s still a lot of them I like…Maybe its cuz I never played those games.

      1. You should try both BW and the sequels as well. They don’t seem to be that enjoyable at first but the story is really neat and the region itself is quite unique too. Don’t miss out on Gen 5, the storytelling is incredible in Black/White.

        1. I’ve heard really good things about the story. I just wasn’t too fond of the Pokemon repeats they had in this gen and the over designed starters.

    3. Hmmm…
      For me:
      Psychic: mr. Mime
      Ice: Cryoganol
      Fighting: conkelldur
      Poison: Muk
      Water: Simipour
      Normal: Diggersby.
      Fairy: Cleffable
      Ground: Drillbur
      Rock: Gigalith
      Fire: Magmortar
      Grass: Maractus
      Electric: Voltorb
      Dark: Scrafty
      Dragon: Dragonite
      Flying: Fearow

      1. We agree on quite a bit. I wasn’t around here much during black and white, so why do a lot of people dislike Maractus? I think its kinda cute.

        1. I love all grass types, it’s just the least memorable to me… Actually my least favorite would probably be cacturn, now that I think about it.

          1. Hmmm… I guess if it I had to choose I would probobly say… venomoth but not by much.

          2. Not really a fan either, but it’s not so bad. Just kinda basic in terms of design and typing though.

    4. Waits a second least?

          3. Lol cool! This was a least favorites list but who cares? You’ve got good taste

    16. Least fave? So that means it should be part of your favorites but they should be the worst among the favorites?

      Nah, too hard. I’ll go with least liked.

      Bug – Most of them.

      Dragon – Kyurem

  14. Since I can’t actually afford the data required to play Pokemon Go(I have a small plan) I’m getting Pokemon Red and Yellow on the virtual console 🙂

        1. The 11th or 12th of each month but don’t take it for granted. They might be a bit late.

    1. Out of all the released characters, Lillie is by far my favorite (sorry Kukui)

  15. I hate that Go isn’t out in Europe. I see all these people playing and talking about it, the hype is right now and I can’t participate. Some friends have the app as well (like they made an Australian Apple Store account), but I read that that can result in a ban, so I don’t have the guts to try that.
    I just hope it will be released soon.

    1. Well just take comfort in the fact that when it does finally come out in Europe it’ll work like it was suppose to and won’t crash or freak out constantly lol

    1. Yep, we’ll probably have news reasonably soon, if corocoro brings anything.

  16. 1. Is it true that they have a plushie for every pokemon?
    2. Is Zaq actually a pokemon? idk im dumb, idk anything

          1. Wow there’s no Volcarona? But that’s a lovely pokemon. I’d want a Castform because it’s a :3

          2. I’d be surprised if they didn’t have castform. But yeah they totally need a volcarona one

    1. You’re welcome to continue talking about it! I’m sure it will be brought up many times in the future.

  18. Yo so this goes out to all them south Floridian users out there (I know there’s a lot of you). Screenshot your top 9 Pokemon like I did, cuz I wanna see what you guys caught in Florida that I haven’t. (refresh)

    1. Is anyone else annoyed with eggs like this and why do I have one that I need a 10km. for us it rarer or just a way to throw me under a bus?

        1. It’s irritable that it somehow knows when I’m in a car or not making it harder to hatch my first egg

          1. Just make the car go painfully slow. (20 kph or less)

            And besides, even if you don’t get the full reward, the vehicle does have to slow down sometime, so a city bus ride would be great since they don’t go all that fast, and it makes a lot of stops.

          2. Some problems I can’t drive and I don’t live where I can take a bus normally

          3. Well, I was just saying that even though the game has “anti-vehicle detection”, it is still worth trying to hatch eggs while riding. <3

      1. That’s an OP as **** Golduck!
