Reading Time: 3 minutes

POKÉMON with YOU Train

 

https://www.instagram.com/kreamylin/

 

In the land know as Japan, joy can be found everywhere. Japan has many themed experiences. From themed cafe’s to themed trains. If you want a unique experience then Japan is your destination. With the Olympics coming once again in Tokyo for 2020 I expect we see a lot of new themed events for tourists and participants of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

 

Last time in Japan I came across the POKÉMON with YOU Train. My phone wasn’t Charged so I wasn’t able to take photos. Super sad about that, however I found someone who took many photos so I wanted to share those here with you all now after I get into info about the POKÉMON with YOU Train. You basically enjoy a fun outing with the lively Pikachu.

 

 

Playroom Car

Try your hand at being the conductor in the driver’s cab or the engine room. Or play with the loads of gadgets and other fun things filling the area around the reclining Pikachu in the middle of the car.

Communication Seats
(reserved seating cars)

Depictions of Pikachu are everywhere, including the backrests of the seats, the curtains and much more!
Tickets for the POKÉMON with YOU Train are not available for sale outside of Japan. There are multiple ways to purchase tickets as follows.
Passes:
Purchase a pass that is for foreign visitors to Japan and covers the travel area. Recommended passes when visiting Japan
Tickets:
Available for sale at JR EAST Travel Service Centers and your local JR Ticket Office (Midori-no-madoguchi).
Note: Not all services are available on certain trains when boarding with a pass or a ticket.

 

TIP:

If you have a Japanese travel agency nearby or if not google one and book through them because you can get rail passes for way cheaper. For example if you want to go from Tokyo to Kyoto it will cost you about $100 US or ¥10679.5 JPY for one way. If you plane to travel to several destinations while visiting Japan, travel agencies in your country usually allow you to order rail passes from them at a one time fee that can be used unlimited for the duration of your stay.

 

 

 

So Geek Impulse Fam, have you been to Japan? Do you have any tips for Otaku who are heading that way for a trip? What themed places have you visited? Let me know in the comments below!

21st Pokémon anime film Key Visuals & Trailer

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

 

If you love Pokémon as much as we do at Geek Impulse then this latest news should be an exciting one for you. We just learned that on the official Japanese website for the 21st Pokémon anime film titled Pocket Monster: Minna no Monogatari/Pokémon the Movie: Everyone’s Story has finally been updated with visuals as well as with an introduction to five of its new protagonists, along with Satoshi and Pikachu.

 

劇場版ポケットモンスター みんなの物語」2018年7月13日(金)ロードショー #ポケモン映画

 

As you well know if you have been following the franchise for a while now this one continues where the 20th film Kimi ni Kimeta!/I Choose You! Left off. That one of course was released in July of 2017. Below is the list of protagonist for this film:

 

  • Lisa: a high school girl who is an absolute Pokémon beginner
  • Kagachi: a braggart who can’t stop lying
  • Torito: a timid researcher who can’t have confident in himself
  • Hisui: an eccentric old lady who hates Pokémon 
  • Largo: a mysterious girl

 

 

 

To be honest, Lisa, is the first time that we have seen a Pokémon character design that I actually we can fully get behind. Now this release is probably coming because of the rumor of a new Pokémon game coming to the Nintendo Switch. Do you think that in this film Ash will mention that he saw Lugia before, and he is the chosen one? Let us know in the comments below as well as find me on Social Media to continue the conversation as well.
