Pokemon Manhole Covers in Hokkaido

Hokkaido Pokefuta
Pokemon Manhole Covers in Hokkaido

Hokkaido is the largest prefecture in Japan. It should be no surprise that it is one of the prefectures with the most number of Pokefuta or Pokemon Manhole Covers. Hokkaido currently has 41 PokefutasThe Pokemon Manhole Covers in Hokkaido Prefecture features vulpix in both the original and the Alolan form as its main Pokemon.

Since I "collect" manholes, the Pokefutas add a different challenge to my goal of taking photos of all the manhole covers here in Hokkaido. For this article, I'll be posting photos of the Pokemon Manhole Covers in Hokkaido and also show you where they can be found. 

These are the Pokefutas that I have taken photos of in Hokkaido:
