A Status Report from the Next Generation World Hobby Fair '17 Winter Tokyo Fair!

The Next Generation World Hobby Fair '17 Winter Tokyo fair was held in Makuhari Messe Saturday January 28th and Sunday January 29th.
This is a status report from it!

This year, the Pokémon Booth is filled with all kinds of "Sun/Moon" material.
Here you can enjoy the world of "Pocket Monsters Sun/Moon", the game that was released November 2016.
The first thing you'll see is the life-sized figure of the Nassy living in the Alola region, the setting of "Pocket Monsters Sun/Moon". It is an incredible 10.9m high!
Childen walking past the Pokémon Booth would look up at it and shout with joy.

The Pokémon Booth itself is modeled after the four islands of the Alola region, and on "Poni Island", where the Alolan Nassy can be found, there is a photo spot where you can take a picture with the Alolan Nassy.
In this section, we also rent out Pokémon merchandise you can dress up with! Take fun pictures and brag to your friends.

This is the back of the 10.9 Alolan Nassy. The tail with a head is another must-see

The staff will take your pictures at the photo spot.
At the Tokyo fair, the Pokémon Booth got into a state of excitement when Rica Matsumoto, who plays Satoshi in the "Pocket Monsters Sun & Moon" anime, Taiiku Okazaki, who sings the ending theme, and Abareru-kun, who hosts "Pokémon no Uchi Atsumaru?", appeared.

Then, at "Melemele Island" we have set up "Professor Kukui's Z-Move Laboratory"!
This is a section where you can experience Z-Moves in real life thanks to super high-tech means. Afterwards, you'll be given a QR code that lets you see the movie you just took part in online. The movie is set up so that you can distribute it via twitter etc.

"Ula'ula Island" is a section where you can have fun battling the Skull Gang in the Pokémon Card Game!
We will lend out cards, so it's possible for those who didn't bring their own to jump right in and join as well!

There's also "Akala Island", where you can try the stamp rally, as well as a Pokémon Ga-Olé section near the actual Pokémon Booth.

The Next Generation World Hobby Fair is full of fun!
The Osaka fair (in the Kyocera Dome Osaka) will be held February 5th, and the Fukuoka fair (in the Fukuoka Yahuoku! Dome) will be held February 12th.
Admission is free. Make sure to visit the Pokémon Booth!
