Pikachu Pokémon Art Experience Manchester

The Pokémon Company has revealed that it will be taking over the Trafford Centre in Manchester next month! From 17th October to 13th November — just five days before Pokémon Scarlet & Violet's release — 'Pokémon Art Through the Ages' will let kids (and adults) learn about different art techniques.

During the event, eager Pokémon fans can also pop into GAME in the Trafford Centre to get a double-sided poster, take part in art exhibitions, and meet Pikachu. (Thanks Serebii!) There will also be special screenings of the Pokémon movies and anime over at The Orient.

This sounds perfect for parents and adults who are really kids at heart — especially the treasure hunt-style game where you can get a certificate for finding all 151 Pokémon that will be hidden throughout the shopping centre. C'mon, this is the closest we'll ever get to "catching 'em all" in real life! Perhaps we're due a trip to Manchester, then.

Will you be checking out Art Through the Ages from 17th October? Let us know!
