Web-based Pokemon Store Launches in North America

Similar to the real world Pokemon Center stores located in Japan, a digital counterpart has gone live for the United States, offering similar Pokemon-themed products.

Today marks the launch of the Pokemon Center, a web-based store for Pokemon fans in the United States. The store experienced a limited launch on July 2nd, and now has a wide variety of physical merchandise available for purchase and delivery.

Items for sale include various Pokemon plushies, themed T-shirts, mugs, and even Pokemon Trading Card Game booster packs. To celebrate their grand opening, a special commemorative collection featuring note cards, binders, notebooks, collectable pins and more are available- branded with Special Delivery Pikachu and other Pokémon.

In honor of the Pokémon Center launch, a special Poké Ball Pattern Vivillon is available for free in North America for owners of Pokemon X and Pokemon Y until August 12th. The event Pokemon is a level 12 and knows the following moves: Stun Spore, Gust, Light Screen and Struggle Bug. In order to receive the Vivillon, first make sure your Nintendo 3DS is connected to the Internet. Select "Mystery Gift" on the main menu, then choose "Receive Gift". After choosing "Yes", select "Get Via Internet", then "Yes" again. You should be able to see the Pokemon being transferred on screen to your system.

Once in game, speak to the delivery girl in any Pokémon Center to have the Vivillon placed in your party. As always, save your game after this transaction so as not to loose the Pokemon after shutting off your 3DS.

I read the entire article and the only thought that poped into my head was screw another vivllion design, give us one of the 3 unreleased pokes already for cryin out loud.

*fails to see a Charizard X nor Lugia plushie*

*is instantly disappointed*

I like the plushies. Might have to pick up a couple.

And I have to find my copy of Pokeymanz so I can get this event Pokeymanz.

No Goomy plush for sale (I know they exist, they showed it off on Twitter), and no figurines. That makes me a sad Pancham.

But hey, a new Vivllion pattern to obtain, that's something at least.

Yay this is awesome!
Oh wait I live in Australia and get none of this, fuck.
I really like that pattern too.

It's a little low on selection right now, but once they start adding more of the pokedoll plushies, I'll be throwing money at the screen.

Also thank you for telling us about the Vivllion (although I also agree with the unreleased Pokemon being better).

I mostly got what I wanted from the Pokemon center in Japan, pricey as hell, but the quality is too good to pass up.

Is there a European version of this particular site?

No Goomy plush for sale (I know they exist, they showed it off on Twitter), and no figurines. That makes me a sad Pancham.

Showing a Pancham plushie on the front page but not having it listed in the actual catalog makes me a sad Pancham.

Eh? You better rename the title of this article. It's not available for North America just U.S. only.
