Previous Pokémon Centers

Over the years, a few Pokémon Centers have either moved from their original location or closed down. The most notable change was the closure of the New York City Pokémon Center. On January 13th, 2005, the official Pokémon website announced that the Pokémon Center NY would close on January 19th, 2005 for renovations and then rise from its own dust in order to rebuild itself as a better, stronger store called the Nintendo World Store. The Nintendo World Store opened on May 14th, 2005 and it features various Nintendo product from all its franchises not just Pokémon. The Nintendo World Store still carries Pokémon merchandise like plushies, toys and DVD but the stores focus no longer concentrated on just Pokémon.

PokémonCenter.com was an online shop that sold Pokémon merchandise in the United States. They used UPS as their shipping carrier and therefore it was not possible for them to ship orders to a PO Box or military APO address. Their shipping and handling charges were determined by the merchandise dollar amount of each order per delivery address before any deductions and after any taxes had been calculated. The majority of the orders were fulfilled within 1-3 business days.


The website closed down on January 31st, 2008 after running for approximately 5 years. The explanation for closing the site was posted on the site and it stated that: “Pokémon USA, Inc. has decided to sell Pokémon merchandise exclusively through its retail partners.” Pokémon USA later made deals with Toys"R"Us and JAKKS Pacific to distribute merchandise. Pokémon USA and Pokémon UK later merged into The Pokémon Company International and formed the Pikachu Press publishing entity and began selling items in retail stores and online at companies like Amazon.com.

Pokémon Store

The Pokémon Company launched a Pokémon Store on Amazon Japan in November of 2012. Many of the items that are found at the Japanese Pokémon Centers could now be officially purchased online. 10,000+ items were available for purchase at launch and most of them had free shipping inside of Japan. Many of these items can also be sent worldwide, so now fans from around the world that would like to get Pokémon merchandise usually only available in Japan could get them from a trusted online retailer. The shipping rates depend on the item and the location it was being sent to.
