Greetings fellow Pokémon trainers!
Are you looking forward to your next adventure in the Galar region? Would you like a chance to experience what Galar has to offer ahead of the launch of Pokémon Sword and Shield? Well, if you are fortunate enough to be attending PAX West, or live/travel around Southern California and the Texas area, you will have a chance to enjoy the hospitality of a Galar Visitor Center.
The visitor center will host demos of Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, unique photo opportunities with Galar themed backdrops and Pokémon, and special items promoting the Galar region like travel brochures and post cards. Pokémon fans who bring in a receipt showing an existing pre-order for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Sheild, or who makes a pre-order on site will receive a special luggage tag with a Galar theme.
How awesome is that?
