Pokemon Store New Chitose Airport details

The idea behind a "Pokemon Store" is similar to the Poke Mart in your favorite Pokemon games. However, unlike in the games, the Poke Stores don't sell potions and different kinds of heals but they do have a plethora of Poke Dolls (plush toys) and Pokeballs with toys to choose from.

I visited the Pokemon Store New Chitose Airport last April 16, 2022, which was my 166th day here in Japan as an ALT under the JET Programme. I already went to the store last January 7, 2022, before my flight to Kansai International Airport but was saddened to discover that it was closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Look who's very happy with her new Cabin Attendant Pikachu

During my visit last April 2022, I bought the store-exclusive Cabin Attendant Pikachu to give as a welcome gift to my daughter when she arrives in Hokkaido.

Overall, had I been addicted to Pokemon like how I was 15 years ago, I would have bought other souvenirs in the store. Regardless, I was happy to see that even if I retired as a Pokefan, there is a new generation that would take over including my daughter. Hence, I'm looking forward to visiting the other Pokemon Stores and Pokemon Centers around Japan
