Pokémon’s plans for real-world domination is getting one step closer with news of an actual Pokémon Gym opening in Osaka, Japan.
The Pokémon Expo Gym — billed as a hands-on edutainment venue — will open 19 November in the Japanese city and will give fans a chance to learn training tips, Pokémon activities and even have a conversation with a Pokémon.
Various training programs featured in the gym will allow visitors to gain special rewards in X, Y, Alpha Sapphire, and Omega Ruby including special Pokémon. A smartphone app tied to the Gym will be released next month ahead of the opening and will allow visitors to track their stats and ranking at the Gym.
