Do you love Pokemon too? When I was young it was super popular everywhere! Pokemon cards, Pokemon games, plushies and of course the anime. Nowadays Pokemon is still going strong! Japan has several Pokemon centers, like the one in Ikebukuro where you can buy the cutest Pokemon merchandise and even a Pokemon cafe where you can order pokelicious food and drinks! A few years ago Pokemon Go was released, which became a craze all over the world and helped Pokemon to become popular once more. The best part of it was that gamers finally left their house and got some exercise while also socializing with other people who played the game. After a few months many people got bored but the real fans continued playing the game and in Japan you still see people playing it every now and then!
