In the first time in history Pokémon World Championships will be held in London, UK. From 18-21 August 2022 the world’s best players will gather in ExCel London to compete.
Meanwhile, the biggest Pokémon pop-up store ever featured at Pokémon Championships will open on the 17th August and will be there for five whole days.
Watch video here.
Pokémon Centre’s very first pop-up shop appeared in Westfield White City in 2019 and was a huge success.
Now, after five long years, Pokémon Centre returns to the capital and is promised to be bigger and better than ever. In fact, it will be the biggest Pokémon Centre pop-up store ever in the Pokémon Championships history and will feature exclusive limited-edition World Championship merch.
You don’t need to book if you want to visit the Pokémon Centre, however, booking is strongly recommended because the store is expected to be super busy during the championships five days.
Limited time slots for up to four people can be booked here.
You don’t need to be a Pokémon Championships ticket holder to visit the Pokémon store.
If you couldn’t book a time slot in advance, you can still show up and join a virtual queue at the Pokémon Centre at the ExCel.
