Pokemon Go isn’t the only way to get in some quality fun time this summer…

Beginning July 16, 2016 and continuing through August 31, 2016, the MARK IS Minato Mirai and Landmark Plaza in Yokohama will be home to “Pikachu’s Action-Packed Summer!” Activities for this event include a quiz rally where contestants will take a guide booklet and explore 4 different locations in the area, answering questions and collecting stamps for a special prize.

The “What’s It like to Learn with Pikachu? The Pokemon Science Fiction Encyclopedia Quiz Rally”, will cover the techniques and characteristics of various Pokemon while getting you to explore the mysteries of science.

Adding to the excitement is the return of the hugely popular projection mapping show “Pikachu and the Dancing Adventurers – The Mystery of the Jungle Ruins”. Though there are only 4 showings per day and each show runs for only 6 minutes, that’s definitely enough time to lose oneself in the magical and mystical world of Pokemon.

Also, in celebration of the release of Rikao Yanagita’s second volume in the “Pokemon Science Fiction Encyclopedia” series, the author himself will be holding talks and workshops. You’ll also be able to score all kinds of exclusive Pokemon merchandise. What else could there possibly be to make this an even more Pokemon-filled summer to remember?


A Pikachu outbreak. Yup, that’s right! According to the official event website, you’ll be able to spot Pikachu’s all over the Sakata Seed Garden Square at Landmark Plaza. In this same location, you’ll be able to meet and greet some of your favorite Poke-friends.

▼ Four Pokemon will be there to greet everyone!


So if you are in the area and looking for something to do, you might as well check this one off of your Pokemon-themed bucket list. (I’m not the only one who has one, am I??) I guarantee that the memories made will last longer than the Pikachu sun visor you get to decorate at the event, but both will be priceless anyway!


For more information, be sure to check out the official website. There you’ll find dates, times, and locations, with much of the information also available in English.

Btw, if you are lucky enough to go, do us a favor and send a tweet of yourself in your Pikachu sun visor to @RocketNews24En!
