Pokémon Center MEGA TOKYO is the one of the largest Pokémon Centers in Tokyo, making it a great place to stock up on Pokémon merchandise.

What’s special about this Pokémon Center?

MEGA TOKYO is the newest Pokémon Center in Tokyo, and its current mascot statue is Miraidon from Pokémon Violet. Here you can take photos with the statues of the gym leaders at the Pokémon GO Lab, while at the Pokémon Card Game area you can battle other Pokémon fans. These two things are unique to MEGA TOKYO, you can’t do them at the other centers in Tokyo.

Nearby there is also the Pikachu Sweets Café, not to be confused with the Pokémon Café. The Pikachu Sweets Café is take-away only, and doesn’t need reservations — unlike the Pokémon Café.

Is the Pokémon Center MEGA TOKYO worth it?

If you want to get a lot of shopping done, this Pokémon Center is a good pick. The Pokémon GO Lab is also fun if you’re a Pokémon GO player, and the Pikachu Sweets Café is great for a snack. There are also lots of Pokémon statues around the entrance of the Pokémon Center so there are good photo ops.
