The Pokémon Company has already opened plenty of Pokémon Center and Pokémon Stores, but so far, all the permanent ones are located in Japan. There was one in New Year man years ago, but it’s since been replaced by the Nintendo NY store.
But today, the second permanent Pokémon Center store outside Japan has been announced: the Pokémon Center Singapore, which will open in March 2019 at the JEWEL Aiport Singapore. Naturally, it will offer the usual exclusive (and non-exclusive) Pokémon Center stores merchandise, but also some merchandise exclusive to that very store.
