The Pokémon World Championships are coming to the ExCel in London next week (August 17th-24th) where contestants will finally be able to discover who is the very best like no one ever was.

The event will also house a Pokémon Centre pop-up store for the duration of its stay and today we've got a first look at some of its exclusive merch, thanks to Serebii.

The store will be selling two coin sets containing a Pikachu-embossed coin, damage markers and a VSTAR marker all collected in an exclusive case. The collections will be available in two different editions — Main Look and City Set — and the cases and coins differ accordingly.

Check out the images below for a closer look at these lovely-looking exclusive items.

The coin sets will be one of the many items that you will be able to buy at the store during the World Championships — during last week's Pokémon Presents, we also got a little look at two exclusive plushies of Pikachu and Roserade.

Nothing else has been officially confirmed, but we certainly expect even more plushies-galore. To visit the store, you can either register for a slot online or show up on the day and take your chances in the virtual queue.

The store will be open on the following dates and times:

  • Wednesday, August 17th - 12pm to 7pm
  • Thursday, August 18th - Saturday, August 20th - 8am to 8pm
  • Sunday, August 21st - 8am to 4pm
