Are you an avid Pokemon trainer? Have you ever thought about seeing all of the Pokemon-related sights in Japan? Well, you’re in luck! Pokemon Local Acts has just unveiled an English version of their site for any fans interested in Pokemon-related tourist spots.

Pokemon Local Acts is an organization which aims to promote Japan’s localities by highlighting their various charms. To do so, each region of Japan is assigned an ambassador Pokemon whose characteristics are reflective of the area. For example, as of July 2019 Lapras is the official ambassador Pokemon of the Miyagi prefecture. Miyagi is characterized by beautiful coastlines on the Pacific Ocean, making it the perfect area for the water transport Pokemon.

The Pokemon Local Acts website lists which Pokemon is ambassador for each area. There you can read about why it was selected for that area, when it was appointed, and discover any events tied to that area. For instance, Sandshrew was made ambassador to the Tottori area in December 2018. From July 20th to August 24th, Sandshrew and Alolan Sandshrew can be seen in various parts of the Tottori prefecture. On July 20th they were seen at the Tottori Sand Dune Visitor Center in gigantic glory.

In addition to these events, the Pokemon Local Acts website also includes a detailed map of Poke lid locations. Poke Lids are artistic covers for utility holes that can be found throughout Japan. Trainers can aim to see all of them or simply get the exact locations for the ones they want to see. There is an especially adorable cover of a male and female Pikachu meeting each other in Yokohama.

So if you love Pokemon and are planning to visit Japan, it may be a good idea to check out the Pokemon Local Acts website. That way, you can see some awesome Pokemon representation along the way.
