The Biggest Pokémon Center in Japan Opens

Best part? It's called Pokémon Center Mega Tokyo. Fitting, because today saw mega lines. The opening in Tokyo's Ikebukuro saw a slew of limited edition goods, like a plush toy Pikachu dressed as Charizard. There were also little figurine versions. These were only slated to go on sale from today until Sunday, making them rare collectibles.

Many Twitter users reported an hour to two hour wait just to get into the store to shop. It looks like the vast majority of people in attendance were adults.

Here's a look inside. Note that many of these pics were taken before the crowds descended.

The Pokémon Center Mega Tokyo is located in Ikebukuro's Sunshine City. As of right now, the line to get in is still apparently an hour to an hour and a half long.

    Those bags, straight to ebay obviously.

    I need to get married so I have an excuse to go to Japan on a honeymoon. I'll be saying romantic getaway to a beautiful foreign land but I'll be thinking Pokemon Center exclusive distribution events.

      Let's get married so I have the same excuse! Haha

    This should have been open January this year! I had to go all the way to Tokyo bay area to go to a Pokemon Centre, when I was right near Ikebukuro.

    Next time...

    A friend of mine who now lives in Japan got me a Pika-zard!
    Can't wait to get it off her!
