It was a collaboration between The Pokémon Company, P-project Inc, TV Tokyo and Nintendo and slowly made its way around the world – 2005’s Poképark was in Japan and attracted 4.15 million visitors!
The park had all kinds of exciting rides and attractions based on Pokémon. The Pikachu Forest allows kids to ride on the back of a Pikachu, Mudkip’s Big Splash is a ride through a watery world where lots of hidden Pokémon can be found, Pokémon 3D Adventure is a cool cinema experience in three-dimensions and there’s a Pokémon Safari Adventure when you can have a go at catching the creatures for real!
DS Fishing Contest
All those park goers with a Nintendo DS are able to download a special fishing game that’s been made especially for PokéPark. You have to cast your line and coax the fish to take a bite. You can even compare your scores with other DS owners around the park and appear on stage to win big prizes!
Visitors to the park can download a special PokéPark Celebi to their Game Boy Pokémon games and take him home with them. This is the only way you can catch this Pokémon, you won’t find him at any other event and you can’t swap this Pokémon with friends who have Game Boys!
Old Sea Chart for Pokémon Emerald
The eighth Pokémon feature film ‘Lucario and the Mystery of Mew’ released in Taiwan on 30 June 2006 and if gamers went to the movies they could get a download certificate that can be swapped for an Old Sea Chart download for Emerald at the park. Now they can catch a wild Mew on Faraway Island!
Free Pokémon Trading Card Game Jirachi Card
Fans of the Pokémon Trading Card Game have also got a treat in store at PokéPark. Visit on weekdays and you can pick up a limited edition card of Jirachi. Card experts can show off their skills on the park’s main stage while beginners can take lessons from Trading Card Game masters.
