First Pokémon Center outside Japan opens in March 2019 in Singapore with Pikachu, Lapras and Celebi as main mascots

The Pokémon Company recently announced plans to open the first-ever Pokémon Center in Singapore. It will be housed at the Jewel Changi Airport, where fans will be able to purchase a variety of exclusive Pokémon-themed products. When it opens its doors in March 2019, this location will be the only official permanent Pokémon Center outside of Japan. The three chief mascots for this particular store are Pikachu, Lapras and Celebi.

Susumu Fukunaga, Corporate Officer, The Pokémon Company said: “We are pleased with the positive outcome from the Pokémon event we held at Changi Airport a few years ago. It served as an excellent promotional platform not only in Singapore, but also across the Southeast Asia region. Jewel is located at the heart of Changi Airport where we can expect visitors from Singapore and international travellers. We believe that by choosing Jewel as the venue for our first overseas store, we will see positive results across our brand over the coming years.”
