On September 4th, 2018, Typhoon Jebi made landfall over the Kansai region of Japan causing massive flooding to Kansai International Airport. On September 5th, 2018, a 6.6 magnitude earthquake hit Hokkaido, Japan. Due to these disasters, The Pokémon Company and Nintendo announced temporary closures to some Pokémon Center and Stores as well as rescheduling the September 2018 Nintendo Direct.


Pokémon Store Kansai Airport

The Kansai International Airport Pokémon Store recently announced that they were expanding, but due to access to the airport being very difficult due to a bridge being damaged, the store will be closed for the time being. It will be announced on the Voice Pokémon website when it will reopen again.

Pokémon Center Sapporo

Due to the earthquake impacting the local power grid, the Pokémon Center will be closed and hopefully reopen on Saturday, September 8th, 2018 at 10am JST.

Pokémon Store New Chitose Airport

The New Chitose Airport Pokémon Store was also affected by power outages due to the earthquake and it will be closed for the time being. The stores reopening will be announced on the Voice Pokémon website.

September 2018 Nintendo Direct

Nintendo originally announced that a Nintendo Direct would take place on September 6th, 2018 at 6pm EST but that was mere hours before the earthquake in Hokkaido. Due to that powerful earthquake, Nintendo decided to delay the planned Nintendo Direct and informed viewers that they would provide a new time and date for the broadcast.
