'Catch 'em All' with Pokémon Vending Machines

| Pokémon , Weird Japan

You never know when you might need a Pokémon in a pinch. But don't fret—Pokémon vending machines can now be conveniently found all around Japan!

These machines sell popular Pokémon goods (particularly plushes) usually sold in the Pokémon Center, as well as limited edition plushes like the Haneda Airport pilot Pikachu. So instead of traversing all the way to the Pokémon Center in Ikebukuro, Tokyo, or the SkyTree, you can get a new cuddly friend once you land in Haneda Airport.

A friendly, adorable Pikachu helps guide you as you pick your first vending machine Pokémon. The machine also supports Japanese, English, Chinese, and Korean languages. You can find these Pokémon vending machines located in the Haneda Airport, Odaiba Aqua City, the Ebina service area in Kanagawa, the Ashigara service area in Shizuoka and the Kansai International Airport in Osaka.
