If you’re a Pokémon fan, you can’t miss this under any circumstances. Starting this week, the North Atrium of the Westfield London shopping center hosts a Christmas tree made up of over 800 plush toys from the Pokémon Center located there. The tree, standing over 4 meters tall, can be viewed and photographed from November 23rd to December 4th.

Based on an artistic rendering of the tree found on the Pokémon website, the tree is composed of a wide range of Pokémon species, including Squirtle, Psyduck, Ditto, and Piplup. The tree is topped with a Pikachu dressed in a Christmas sweater.

Additionally, a QR code is displayed to visit the Pokémon Center website, where you can purchase all the plush toys, along with a series of other Christmas-themed Pokémon such as Pawmi, Sprigatito, and a wide variety of Pikachu versions. And if you’re a fan of Ash Ketchum’s faithful companion, pay attention, as you can also participate in a drawing for 12 giant plush toys of the charismatic electric mouse.

To enter the drawing, you’ll need to share a photo taken with the tree on Instagram, tag @PokemonNewsUK, and include the hashtag #pokemoncenteruk. If you can’t visit it in person, you can follow the same steps with ‘a photo of your favorite Pokémon plush in a winter scene‘ for a chance to win, although the plush toys will only be delivered to UK addresses.

The Pokémon Christmas events in Europe are not limited to the tree, as the Pokémon Company recently announced that Poké Post offices would be opening in selected cities in the UK, France, and Germany from now until December 19th

At these stations, visitors will receive a Pokémon Trading Card Game, as well as a pair of Pokémon Together promotional cards, one of which will be sent by mail to a friend. It also includes meet-and-greet opportunities and photo opportunities with Pikachu and Eevee. The list of upcoming locations and dates is as follows:

  • November 25th: Westfield La Part-Dieu, Lyon, France
  • Sábado 2 de diciembre: Plaza de La Défense, París, Francia
  • Saturday, December 2nd: La Défense Square, Paris, France
