Nintendo set up a Pokémon Play Zone! during Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle the weekend of March 14-17, and everyone was invited! The Pokémon Play Zone! was set up at the Hyatt Regency a couple of blocks away from the Washington State Convention Center. Visitors to Nintendo’s family-friendly zone were able to play the hit Nintendo Switch games Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, take memorable photos, meet iconic Pokémon Pikachu and Eevee, and have the chance to receive special branded items.
Pokémon GO Trainers who were looking for a one-of-a-kind Pokémon GO experienc stopped by the Pokémon Play Zone! for some limited-time in-game surprises. Pokémon GO Trainers who demoed the Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! games also had the chance to encounter Meltan, a newly discovered Pokémon in Pokémon GO.
People that visited the Pokémon Play Zone! were able to play Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! using the Poké Ball Plus accessory, which replicates the look and feel of a real-life Poké Ball. Players can control their entire adventure using just Poké Ball Plus by making a gentle throwing motion to capture Pokémon. In addition to the games, props and backdrops inspired by the games were set up for memorable photo opportunities that can be shared on social media. The adorable Pikachu and Eevee costumed characters also made special appearances to snap pics with fans.
