The Next Generation World Hobby Fair '19 Winter is currently underway.

The Pokémon Booth included a gigantic "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution" installment!
In addition, "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution" flyers were given out next to the booth, together with Next Generation World Hobby Fair-exclusive "Pocket Monsters Sun & Moon" multi stands.

"Special Pokémon Anime Concert & Talk Stage Shows" were held at the stage inside the Pokémon Booth.
Rica Matsumoto and Taiiku Okazaki were present on Saturday January 26th,
raising the roof by watching the teaser for "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution" together with the audience,
challenging them to Pokémon tongue twisters, and more!
In addition, we got passionate performances of, among other songs, "Alola!!" and "Mezase Pokémon Master -20th Anniversary-" by Rica Matsumoto
and "Pose" and "Kimi no boken" by Taiiku Okazaki, sending the venue into a state of excitement!
During the afternoon show, Sunshine Ikezaki was present as well, making the show even more passionate!!!!!

Other shows were hosted at the event stage as well, all of them attracting a huge crowd;
During the "Pokémon Card Game: Battle Abareru-kun! Come Forth, Challengers! Stage Show",
everyone were cheering on the challengers that were selected from the audience,
and during the "Special Pokémon Ga-Olé Stage Show",
everyone were holding their breath in excitement during the thrilling battle against Ultra Necrozma!
Lots of people also showed up at the "Pokémon Card Gym" section of the booth, where you could take part in Pokémon Card battles using your own deck,
and where victorious players were entered in a lottery of which winners got to challenge Gym Leaders to a battle!
An air of enthusiasm was constantly surrounding the Pokémon Booth!

On the second day of the Tokyo fair, Sunday January 27th,
the "Pokénchi Presents a Special Pokémon Stage Show" was held at the World Hobby Fair Stage.
The Pokénchi residents Shoko Nakagawa, Hyadain, Abareru-kun and Rinka Otani were present,
enjoying the teaser for "Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution" on a gigantic screen.
Both kids and adults had a blast at the show, and the audience even included dads and moms who said they had watched the first Pokémon movie when they were kids!

The Next Generation World Hobby Fair '19 Winter Tokyo fair ended up being a great success, the atmosphere having burning with excitement so heated it even blew away the cold midwinter air.
