Pikachu and his friends are coming to London to spread some festive cheer with the arrival of their Poké Post Mailing Office on London’s South Bank next month, just in time for Christmas. The Pokémon-themed Post pop-up will allow guests to send the gift of Pokémon for free to a friend to commemorate the festive season.
This one-day-only pop-up hits London on Tuesday December 19th as part of the tour which will see the pop-up making stops across cities in the UK, France and Germany for six weeks with London marking its final stop.
Children and families are encouraged to celebrate the spirit of giving at the Poké Post pop-up where they’ll be able to choose from either a Pikachu or Eevee Trading Card Game gift pack to post to someone special this Christmas season, and the best part? There’ll also be a second gift pack that’s entirely yours to keep. Inside each gift pack, there’s a corresponding Pokémon Together promo card of Pikachu or Eevee and a Scarlet & Violet Trading Card Game Fun Pack so you and the lucky friend you’ve chosen can both enjoy some Pokémon fun.
Guests will also be able to meet some Pokémon themselves with exciting Pikachu and Eevee appearances along with plenty of photo opportunities so you can get the perfect festive Pokémon-themed selfies that all the family will enjoy.
Peter Murphy, Senior Director of Marketing at The Pokémon Company International comments:“If there is someone in your life that would love to receive a Pokémon-themed surprise through the post this winter, then this is the place to sign them up! We can’t wait to welcome the new generation of Pokémon Trainers who are starting their journey with someone special this holiday.”
The Poké Post pop-up will be open from 10am until 7:30pm on the Queen’s Walk, South Bank and booking is not required. The gift packs may only be posted to addresses in mainland UK or the Isle of Man, Metropolitan France and domestic Germany. Find out more here.
