If you've ever entertained the childhood dream of traveling the world and becoming the next Pokémon master, this may be your chance!
Pokémon Wonder is a brand-new outdoor adventure that brings everyone's favorite Pokémon characters to life in a natural wooded area. Now, you really can "Catch 'Em All!" - right in the suburbs of Tokyo!
A Pokémon Adventure for Kids and Adults!
Pokemon originated from the author's enthusiasm with bug-collecting as a child. As an adult, he took that enthusiasm and created what is now one of the most popular anime and game series in the world.
Today, several renowned creators in the modern gaming world have come together to bring that magical world to life!
Keiichi Motoyama (creative director of Six and most notable for his work on the Pokémon GO global trailer, and Pokemon Sword and Shield), and Ryogo Matsumaru (creator of Todai Nazotore book series and CEO of mystery creation company Riddler) are two of the masterminds behind the event.
Their goal is to bring Pokemon to life by creating a fun and interactive event combining the excitement of mystery-solving with the adventure of the great outdoors.
An Untouched Forest for Nearly 20 Years Sets the Stage for Adventure
Pokémon Wonder is set to be held in an undisclosed natural area deep inside Yomiuriland, one of the largest amusement parks in Tokyo. The setting is a 4,500-square-meter forest that has remained untouched for nearly 20 years - until now!
Now you can bring the family and explore the ever-changing landscape as you catch these cuddly critters! Comb through lush vegetation and weave through bamboo groves, and follow the clues to discover hidden Pokémon.
Children and adults will love seeing their favorite cartoon characters come to life as they adventure through the wilderness!
Become a Pokemon Researcher!
Participants will become Pokemon researchers, reading clues and searching for Pokemon over the course of 90 minutes. There's no CG, no anime, not even a single stuffed animal. Using everything from plants to sunlight, each Pokémon has been adapted from the surrounding environment itself in a never-before-seen artistic fashion.
For example, take the Pokémon, Seedot, which was created by attaching tiny wooden legs to Hokkaido acorns. Or Metapod, created by folding a leaf, origami-style! Every Pokémon you find is a creation made from nature itself!
Two Courses, Over 50 Types of Pokemon!
Over 50 kinds of Pokemon await, hidden throughout two different courses: the Ancient Stone Wall and the Whispering Bamboo Grove. Up to six people can participate in a group and cover each course in about 90 minutes.
