Neues Pokémon Center öffnet am 26. Juni in Hiroshima (German Pokemon Fan-site) - Fri, 05/22/2015 - 11:44

Am 26. Juni 2015 öffnet das inzwischen neunte Pokémon Center in Japan. Nach Tokio, Osaka, Nagoya, Yokohama, Fukuoka, Sapporo, Chiba und Sendai folgt nun Hiroshima als weiterer Standort eines Pokémon Centers. Dies wird auch das erste Pokémon Center der Chūgoku-Region sein.

Das Logo des neuen Pokémon Center Hiroshima ziert ein Pikachu, das auf einem Schillernden Garados sitzt. Passend dazu wird es zur Eröffnung auch einige spannende Aktionen geben, die heute bekannt gegeben wurden.

In allen Pokémon-Center- und Pokémon-Store-Filialen wird es demnach eine besondere Verteilungsaktion geben. Vom 26. Juni bis 31. August werden hier gleich zwei Event-Pokémon für die Editionen X, Y, Omega Rubin und Alpha Saphir verteilt. Das erste dieser Event-Pokémon ist, passend zum neuen Laden-Logo, ein Schillerndes Garados. Das zweite Event-Pokémon ist ein Karpador. Aber nicht bloß irgendein Karpador. Es ist in dieser Aktion nämlich möglich, das Karpador beliebig oft auf ein und dasselbe Spiel herunterzuladen. Der Grund: Vielleicht erwischt man ja ein schillerndes Exemplar? Da die Verteilung über einen sehr langen Zeitraum läuft, kann man hier sein Glück also durchaus herausfordern.

Außerdem wird es drei neue Plüschfiguren geben. Zwei davon (ein Pikachu mit Karpador- und Garados-Poncho) werden in allen Pokémon Centern und Pokémon Stores erhältlich sein, während das Dritte (ein Pikachu mit Schillerndem-Garados-Poncho) ausschließlich im Pokémon Center Hiroshima zu kaufen sein wird.

Es sind noch weitere Aktionen in Planung, die erst in Kürze bekannt gegeben werden.
