The run of the temporary Pokémon Center in London might be over, but it’s due to return in 2020 during the upcoming Pokémon World Championships.
Last month saw London’s Westfield shopping center play host to the UK’s first Pokémon Center to tie into the launch of the UK-centric Sword and Shield games. While the shop was a pop-up, and only open for a month, it turned out to be a huge success with people queueing all day and night for the chance to get in and grab some exclusive merch. And today the Pokémon Company has announced it’s coming back.
the United Kingdom for the first time in 2020, as it has been announced that London will host the next Pokémon World Championships. It’s likely that London was chosen due to the Galar region from Pokémon Sword & Shield being based on the United Kingdom.
