“Could be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Did not meet expectations after visiting the Osaka store two years ago. Location was out of the way and the store was quite small and ordinary. No Pokemon music was played in the store during our visit. However, store staff were friendly and courteous.

“AWESOME!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

My son picked Tokyo as his birthday present. One place he "had" to visit, the Pokemon Center. It just so happend it was Pikachu's birthday. There was a huge celebration the day we went. We both won prizes, obviously Pokemon related items. It's a small store and the selection is limited, but many items are only for sale in Japan. Very friendly staff.

“Nostalgia at its best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

This store is amazing! Although I'm somewhat old to play the games now I'm still a huge fan, there are some truly unique items which you can only get in this store! They had a really good selection of items and it's one of those stores where you go in and have to leave with something! Friendly staff, as well as people of all ages in there! It is quite busy, so be prepared but it's still easy to get around. I was fortunate as the Pokemon black and white 2 had just been realised so there was lots of merchandise! Worth a visit, bring your wallet!

“Small store that only sells Pokémon”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Take exit B1 from Daimon and go under the railway lines and its in the building on your right (Shiodome Shibarikyu) on the 2nd floor. Its quite a small shop but packed with people. Sells only Poke on items some of which claim to be for sale only in Japan.
Not knowing anything about Pokémon I find it hard to judge whether the stock is any good or not. Lots of people seemed to be very happy which I guess is a good sign
