Stock up on Poké Balls and get your Pokédex at the ready as Pikachu and friends are coming to a town near you during the Pokémon Adventure Tour this summer. Starting at Magic Summer Live in Guildford on the 13th July and ending at Bournemouth Air Festival on 1st September – the Pokémon Adventure Tour will bring the ultimate Pokémon experience to some of the UK’s biggest outdoor events.
The event will have three ‘zones’ aimed at battling, gaming and general fun as well as a Pokémon Training Centre and a lounge where you can kick back and watch some of your favourite Pokémon episodes. So whether you’re a fan of the games, the TV series or even if you’re brand new to Pokémon, there’s something for everyone.
Pokémon Game Zone
You don’t need to own a Pokémon game to play at the Pokémon Adventure Tour. In the Pokémon Game Zone you can sit back and play through a selection of games including Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, Pokémon Conquest, Super Pokémon Rumble, Learn with Pokémon: Typing Adventure and Pokémon Dream Radar as well as the latest Pokémon Trading Card Game expansions.
Pokémon Fun Zone
There’s even more enjoyment to be had in the Pokémon Fun Zone, where you can have your face painted as your favourite Pokémon character, have your photo taken with Pikachu or even try to catch ‘em all in a Pokémon Grabber Machine filled with Pokémon plush toys.
Pokémon Training Centre
If you’re new to Pokémon, then you can join the Pokémon Training Centre and learn everything you need to know about the characters. You will also get hints and tips to aid you on your adventure, including a master class on how to battle.
If you’re a fan of the Pokémon TV Show or want to know what all the fuss is about, then you should head to the Pokémon Lounge where you can sit back and enjoy some of the TV episodes from the Pokémon series.
The Pokémon Adventure Tour from Nintendo will kick off at Magic Summer Live on the 11th – 13th July at Stoke Park Guildford.
