    Never, most likely. There's not one in the US, either. (There's a general Nintendo store, in NYC, and a few vending machines, but nothing else.) The US and Europe are, I believe, controlled by The Pokémon Company International (TPCI) and not the same as TPC (who controls Japan) and runs the retail outlets; not sure if the two companies just have different focuses or what, but TPCI hasn't shown much interest.

    That said, of course there was the temporary Galar centre in the UK last year, hopefully you visited that!

    Are you talking about the temporary one in October last year? That closed after a month; they planned to open it temporarily again in the summer during the PTCG Worlds, but of course that never happened.

    I tried to visit it but I would’ve been siting for 5 hours in the line! I did have a good time in London for the rest of the day I went though. Also I hope they at least create a European or UK website, America at least has that.

    If you want your mind blown, this Pikachu would be the 16th Pikachu promo for this block, since there are two Kanazawa's Pikachu cards.

    If you include the 3 Pikachu promos released by TPCi, then that numbers increases to 19.:confused:
