The original Pokémon Center celebrated its 20th anniversary on April 25, 2018, in Japan. The Pokémon Company marked this occasion in a variety of ways, including by releasing a wide range of merchandise that commemorates the momentous milestone. A new batch of products recently launched in Japan feature Trainer Red and Pikachu, as designed by renowned Pokémon illustrator Ken Sugimori of Game Freak. A special Kotobukiya figure of the dynamic duo is launching as a Pokémon Center Online exclusive in mid-March 2019. Meanwhile, a special Pokémon TCG promo card featuring both characters is now available at Pokémon Center and Pokémon Store locations throughout Japan. It will be given to customers who purchase at least five booster packs.
