Pokémon the Park 2005, or PokéPark, is, as its name implies, a theme park devoted to Pokémon. It is located on the former site of the Sasashima Cargo Station in Nakamura Ward, Nagoya, Aichi (Sasashima Live 24 Land Redevelopment Project Site) in Japan. It opened on March 18, 2005, and closed on September 25, 2005. It was located at Route 758.
Admission to the park was free, but there was a fee for each attraction visited. Prepaid e-money, or Edy cards, were available online and could be used to pay for attractions in the park. Buying a special PokéPark Edy card enabled holders to special offers and gifts. These cards were offered from November 19, 2004 to February 28, 2005.
There are a total of twelve attractions in addition to a game arcade, an event stage, shops, and cafés. The park's attractions were prominently featured in animated form in "Hello! Thank You!", the fifth Pokémon Sunday ending.
A second PokéPark was opened in Taiwan in 2006.

Two special premium files were released to commemorate the opening of the first PokéPark in Japan: PokéPark Blue and PokéPark Forest. Only PokéPark Forest included cards with PokéPark in their name, though the PokéPark logo is featured on all cards from the two files. Several promotional reprints of these cards were also given away with attraction ticket purchases.
