POKEMON CENTER HIROSHIMA MASCOTS

Hello buddies, this time I’ll show you this set of 3 pikachus, released early last year, as a special edition series announced for the opening of a New Pokemon Store in Hiroshima, if you know the story of the 2nd generation videogames you’ll understand why they’ve chosen a Shinny gyarados as the store mascot.

USED AN OLD ROD AND GOT A MAGIKARP

IMG_7510The weak pokemon that only knows the splash move, and someone tried to sell it to you by a high price on the route 3 in a pokemon center. Magikarp is fanny and useless, everytime I caught one, it ended in the daycare. The only way it might look cute is by being a pikachu disguised.  Poor magikarp used splash once again!!!!

”WHAT DOESN’T KILL YOU MAKES YOU A GYARADOS”

IMG_7502In the anime, when James mistreated and abandoned his magikarp, this pokemon got the anger to evolve and became into a Gyarados, a strong water/dragon type pokemon that intimidates any opponent.

HAVE YOU SEEN A RED GYARADOS IN THE LAKE OF RAGE??

IMG_7507This one is the main star of the show, the story comes from the second generation (pokemon gold, silver and crystal). when the almost disbanded team rocket was testing with pokemons in a secret base in Mahogany town (pokefan detected), one result of these experiments was a color mutation in a gyarados located in the lake of rage the northern part of johto; this was the first time a Shinny pokemon appeared. This fact is very allusive to the WWII and the atomic boms in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, I think Pokemon was paying tribute to the victims of that horrible dissaster.

IMG_7512IMG_7513Right now they’re unavailable at any official store, and the online price for each is so high, i remember i did a survey to choose the first i would buy and the winner was the shinny gyarados but back then, i made a mistake and bought a plush that was a bootleg, fortunately, ebay acted right and i got my money back, since that day I only trust japanese sellers.

So I hope you enjoyed this post and photos, and don’t be scared if I act like a poekmaniac sometimes

thanks and goodbye!! 🙂
