Worth a trip across the pond?

A special Pokemon Centre London pop-up store will offer exclusive UK-themed products timed for the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield.

The store, celebrating the UK-inspired realm of Galar, will be open from 18 October through until 15 November inside Westfield Shepherd’s Bush. You can take a look at a mock-up up o the store below, with a bowler hat-wearing (and Psyduck umbrella-wielding) Pikachu front and centre.

The limited time Pokemon Centre London joins permanent Pokemon Centre retail stores in Japan and even one in New York.

Pokemon Sword and Shield is a Nintendo Switch exclusive, available from 15 November. Today, it was revealed that players will fight against Marnie and her minions, Team Yell.
