Stuffed full of Pokemon stuff, couldn't ask for anything more. There are some serious crowds but it's not really a big deal. It's not a huge place so don't expect to be there any longer than 30 mins to an hour.

I went there on my first trip to Japan, and spent over £50! I would warn you not to go there if you do not want to spend much money. It is jam packed full of Pokemon merchandise, and they usually have special offers to get legendary Pokemon for free via the Nintendo network, so definitely take your Nintendo!

My 13 year old daughter loves Pokemon and therefore, this place is on the must-visit list! Nothing much if you are not a Pokeman fan and the things are rather expensive! I was bored the whole time we were there but my daughter was thrilled to bits!

I've been adoring Pokemon for years so it's a sanctuary for Pokemon fan. I was so happy to be here and happy to find a lot of fluffy Pokemon to bring home. I hope they will display more Pokemon instead of the latest and popular model as I don't live in Tokyo to go there and buy whenever they release... More

For some reason we had the receptionist at our hotel tell us that it was some sort of museum - it's not! Great place to buy Pokemon souvenirs, the end. They also sell candy, stuffed animals, video games, and toys. Nothing out if this world.

Quite a nice place if you have small children. Wide variety of toys all related to Pokemon. But a bit expensive.

There is something for every Pokemon fan at this store. Young, new followers can find kitchy school supplies, keychains, socks -- anything you can think of with a Pokemon image on it. Veteran Pokemon fans can score some cool plushies, some not yet released in the US...I mean 'collectables!' This store is larger than the one in Tokyo Station. Real... More

There are no drawbacks to visiting the Pokemon Center as a nearly-30 year old, for a start you can just shove kids out the way. But really, it's an absolute must for Pokemon fans of all ages, but for a more peaceful browse, pick a time to go that's within school hours. Pokemon products range from plushies, figures and games... More

Lovers of Pokemon can be quite disappointed with shop with no history or explanation of Pokemon. All products are in Japanese so for non-locals it is quite a handicap to understand the products.
