    MERCHANDISE (2nd FLOOR)

    Hey, there’s another floor!

    Not as many toys up here as on the first floor: Think Chip Battle Stadiums, more kinds of figures, jigsaw puzzles, and ink stamps.  The decorated goods displayed here include bookmarks, stickers, school supplies, and party supplies.  You can accessorize your room with a Pokémon cardboard stand-up, and you can accessorize your outfit with Pokémon sunglasses, amulets, and even gym badges.

    Just as on the first floor, the Game Cube and Pokémon Mini are showcased here.  Related items on display include the the Pokémon Center exclusive version of the GameBoy Advance and its accessories, Game Boy games and game guides, and accessories for the Pokémon Mini.  There is also an assortment of board games with a Pokémon theme: Monopoly, Sorry!, etc.

    Not counting game guides, the Pokémon publications are concentrated in the area near the Pokémon Trainer Gym.  The episode adaptations, translated graphic novels and mangas, origami books, and the collection of the short-lived comic strip series are on the wall shelves, across the aisle from the toddler books.

    Along that same wall, past the party supplies, are the music and video sections.  Not only can you find all of the American CDs - yes, even the Pokémon Live! Original Cast Album - you can also buy music books and Spanish versions of the American CDs.  Now you, too, can impress your friends by playing “Double Trouble” on the piano and singing along in Spanish.  The video section contains all of the English episodes and movies that have come out on videocassette, and a significant amount on DVD as well.  Some of the episode collections are also available in Spanish.

    The two most prominent product displays here are those for the Trading Card
    Game and the stuffed toys.  The TCG display, which is adjacent to the TCG display and playing tables, has an expansive array of the newer booster packs, decks, and guides.  TCG cards are also located behind the cashiers on both floors, and TCG accessories are available on the second floor.  Next to the TCG display are three walls of Pokémon beanies and plushes, some of which are also shown in the window displays on both floors.  There is considerable diversity in the Pokémon available, and many of the stuffed toys here are exclusive to the Pokémon Center.

    Pocket Monsters was not created by me.  It was created by Satoshi Tajiri and the crew at TV-Tokyo.  Pokemon is (c) Game Freak, Nintendo, 4Kids Productions, Hasbro, Bandai, and a ton of other companies. When you have a popular anime like Pokemon, lots of people own it so it's impossible to list every company who owns a piece of Pokemon.  No infringement of copyrights is meant by the creation of the web site.  All images were gotten from official websites (Nintendo, TV-Tokyo, etc.) unless otherwise noted (I don't steal images from other sites!).
