I wanna be the very best like no one ever was.
Pokémon is part of my childhood. Most 90s kids will agree. I actually tried to write all the names of Pokémons in a notebook but I did not complete it (poor child). There existed internet but at that time, it was only a dial-up connection.
Pokemon Center in Osaka is an open space full of merch. It is located in Daimaru Umeda Store at 13th floor. The mall is directly connected to JR Osaka Station.
I bought Charmander (Hitokage in Japanese). He’s my favorite starter Pokémon. I don’t know why, I think I just like its cuteness and fire looks powerful.
I also like Eevee because my nickname is Ebe from Phoebe. But I did not buy it, probably next time I would. There are so many stuffed toys and merchandise so I got overwhelmed. There are mugs, cookies, noodles, stationeries, bags, and other stuff. IT’S SO MANY! I can’t choose when seeing all these Pokémons all at once. #1stworldPokémonTrainerProblems
This is a huge pokeball signed by its creator. I can’t read it except the name Satoshi (サトシ) so I just concluded that it is#SatoshiTajiri‘s autograph.
Before leaving Japan, we visited the Pokemon Center at Kansai International Airport. It is located on the 2nd floor, Terminal 2 Building.

If you went there during your birth month, you can present your passport and they will give you a crown, a birthday card, a mini poster, and a 5% discount on selected items. It was December so I got the goodies.
