Take a Road Trip with Pokémon Bus Tour: Explore Galar on YouTube
A new five-part series debuts on Pokémon’s YouTube channel exploring the UK regions that inspired the Galar region from Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield.
Have you ever been playing a video game only to find yourself wishing you could visit the locations that inspired your favorite places from the game? That’s what UK television hosts Sam Nixon and Mark Rhodes get to do in the upcoming Pokémon Bus Tour: Explore Galar series. You’ll be able to join them as they travel in style on a Pokémon-themed double-decker bus on the official Pokémon YouTube channel. They’ll be joined by several special guests along the way as they travel throughout the United Kingdom.
Over the course of their five-episode journey, Sam and Mark visit the sites that helped provide inspiration for the various cities and landscapes in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, from the villages of Postwick and Wedgehurst to the Wild Area teeming with powerful and diverse species of Pokémon. They’ll cross the UK in a vehicle designed to resemble a Poké Ball—one floor of the bus is video game themed, and the second has a Pokémon Trading Card Game motif.
Learn all about the tour locations and the game locations they inspired from our travel brochure. Filled with photos and artistic renditions, the brochure is an excellent supplement as our hosts navigate around the UK. You can download the brochure in the description under each video episode.
As Sam and Mark explore each new location, they’ll meet a Pokémon fan who will help teach them a new facet of gameplay in the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield video games or the Pokémon Trading Card Game. Look forward to meetups with fans including DanTDM, Ali A, Clare Siobhan, Bird Keeper Toby, and Elle Osili-Wood along the way.
