    I'm leaning more towards Skymin...because it looks cool, but landmin is nice as well.

    Has anyone found out if this kiosk is just a test market gig or if they plan on having these things across the states?

    If one comes to where I live, I will secretly kiosk-nap it, jimmy rig it so that it will distribute cool Pokies for DS download...... like Utah and Oregon!

    ( jk on the last part- of course........ or am I?) :P

    No- but really- has this been the only one put out or are there others out there? Seattle exclusive? :( if it is...

Seems like they're doing active research, so I did my piece to make sure you guys get Kiosks in years to come. ^^
    Sounds like they will be trying to set up more.

    As of noon on 10/26, the plushies were the three legendary dogs, pikachu, and flareon... and the shopping cart feature has yet to be activated.

    Could this possibly be a precursor to the Battrio game coming over from Japan? I really hope so. The chips just look SO DARN KOOL!!! And I want to find more of them!

    I now have the urge to put my name on that Livejournal withlist for the elusive Vaporeon plush. It may have non-Japanese tags, but I may have to settle...

    Hey guys, I checked out the Alderwood Pokemon Center yesterday - because that's officially what they are calling it! A POKEMON CENTER.

    It's really just a bunch of kiosks with some stands for plushies, as seen in the photos. The prices are different, and they add in tax, which they did not do before (it was already figured into the price iirc). So stuff is marginally more expensive here - the plushies are more like $11 than $10. Etc.

    They have what basically amounts to a Pokemon TCG section - chock full of booster packs and promo blisters that normally I wouldn't be able to find unless I hunted all over town for them all. They also have a fair stock of games, thick guides for the video games, and some demo DSes plus a demo of what I'm 99% sure is Pokemon Rumble for the Wii.

    We made off with a Lugia, Raikou, Suicune, Entei and Flareon. <3

    I talked to the guys there about it - they said that things went well in Northgate, so we should expect stores just like this one to be popping up all over the country. Soon.

    Says who?

    How long ago was it that we would have never thought we would get (another) one in the United States?

    Nice... but I still miss the WOTC store.

    I still have the cards the boy and I played with back in the day, I still have the Burger King plushies, and the Pikachu ball. And two copies of Trainer Deck B, but that's all that's left.

    Kinda glad the game is still rolling twelve years later. We had a lot of fun with it.

    Ive been to the one in Northgate, there is also a bigger thing in the Tacoma Mall, they have 2 of those and a bunch of plushies.
    Here is my cell phone vid of me checking out everything in the Northgate Mall one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8LFh6TyQBA On the receipt that it gives, it says machine #002. So the Tacoma mall may be #1. IDK if they are planning any more.
