The Pokémon Company International is taking its direct to consumer platform into new international territories, having confirmed the expansion of its official e-commerce arm, the Pokémon Center, into Canada for the first time.
Recognised as a premier destination for official Pokémon merchandise, the online platform was previously limited only to the US.
PokemonCenter.ca. will now offer a variety of Pokémon merchandise, including Pokémon Trading Card Game and items unique to the site such as figures, imported plush, apparel and accessories, home decor, kitchenware, outdoor gear, and more. It will also feature collaboration items with the likes of Funko and Kotobukiya.
“We are thrilled to bring Pokémon Center to our fans in Canada, giving them additional ways to express and celebrate their Pokémon fandom through premium merchandise,” said Cindy Ruppenthal, director of e-commerce at The Pokémon Company International.
“Pokémon Center has something for every type of Trainer – whether it’s to play, collect, decorate, or wear – and we look forward to seeing even more Trainers enjoy these offerings.”
In celebration, Pokémon Center customers in the US and Canada will receive a Pokémon TCG promo card, featuring Special Delivery Pikachu, at no additional cost with any eligible purchase, while supplies last.
