While we are still waiting for a real life Poké Mart, one U.S chain is joining in the Pokémon fun. Over 400 Target stores have painted their bollards to look like giant Poké Balls. Target has said they wanted to celebrate the return of Pokémania that came with GO’s release. They have also announced that their stores will carry a special range of Pokémon products over the next few months. Target’s senior vice president Rick Gomez had this to say:
“We wanted to create an extra special experience for our biggest Pokémon fans, and landed on this idea that we think they’ll love. Our creative team—many of whom are Pokémon fans themselves—designed the Poké Balls, and we worked quickly to get them up across the country. We hope our guests have as much fun with them as we do.”
It seems like a lot of businesses are really getting into the Pokémon spirit. An Australian restaurant recently announced a shockingly cute Pikachu burger. Have you spotted any of these Poké Balls in the wild? Tell us below.
