Original Story (August 6, 2019): To celebrate the release of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield for Nintendo Switch, The Pokémon Company is opening up a special pop-up store in Westfield, London.

United Kingdom’s Westfield locale was chosen because it was the inspiration behind the all-new Galar region players will be able to explore in the upcoming games. The Pokémon Center Pop-Up will run for a limited time starting this October 18 until November 15 and will feature new and exclusive designs, along with London-themed merchandise that can’t be found anywhere else. Although no products have been unveiled as of yet, fans can expect to see plushes, apparel, accessories, games, food and beverage items, and lots more.
