Ikebukuro, Tokyo now holds three Pok\u00e9mon store locations. They're all located within the Sunshine City shopping center that has a hotel, aquarium, movie theater, mall, and more.\r\n\r\nThe world's first <em>Pok\u00e9mon GO<\/em> Lab shop has just opened next to the Mega Tokyo branch and Pikachu Sweets Shop.\r\n\r\n[embed]https:\/\/youtu.be\/2sj2iQyBTQs[\/embed]\r\n\r\nThe <em>Pok\u00e9mon GO<\/em> Lab opened on December 19th on the second floor of the Sunshine City shopping center. This is the first store themed after the mobile title.\r\n\r\nNot only is the <em>Pok\u00e9mon GO<\/em> Lab a space to purchase limited-edition merchandise, but a place for players to come together for the mobile game.\r\n\r\nThe products bring many of the in-game items to life. There are ID\/pass holders, pouches that look like the game's egg incubators, phone cases, candy, clothing, hats, and more. There are many items based on the three teams within the game as well, so players can represent their favorites.\r\n\r\nAt the location, there are several <em>Pok\u00e9mon GO<\/em> themed areas. Players can take photos, battle, or exchange Pok\u00e9mon.\r\n\r\nThere's a large area that looks similar to a <em>Pok\u00e9mon GO<\/em> gym. In the middle of the room, there's a screen where players can learn more about gym leaders and Pok\u00e9mon. The screen also changes color to represent the different <em>Pok\u00e9mon GO<\/em> Teams.\r\n\r\nThe Lab also houses a lifesize statue of Professor Willow, who helps new trainers learn how to play the game. The figure is housed behind ropes, so visitors can only look and not touch the statue.\r\n\r\nThe back of the store is a battle stadium. If trainers are looking for a specific Pok\u00e9mon, they can sign up here to be matched with the right player. The list of Pok\u00e9mon is printed on a sheet in nine languages, making it a welcoming place for those who don't speak Japanese. All of the items in the store can only be purchased in Japanese Yen.\r\n\r\nThe <em>Pok\u00e9mon GO<\/em> Lab will host various events like Raid Battles and more. Participants can receive unique gifts like a sticker of Professor Willow.\r\n\r\nWhen fans are finished visiting the Lab, they can visit the nearby Mega Tokyo store for general <em>Pok\u00e9mon<\/em> goods. There's also the Pikachu sweet shop where hungry visitors can buy a cute <em>Pok\u00e9mon<\/em>-themed cupcake or other sweets.\r\n\r\nThe <em>Pok\u00e9mon GO<\/em> Lab is now open for visitors in the Sunshine City shopping center in Ikebukuro, Tokyo, Japan.
