If you were looking for the locations in the main series games, see Game Corner.

The Game Center (Japanese: ゲームセンター) is a location found in Template:Card GB 2 on GR Island. In the Game Center, Mark or Mint can earn coins by playing slot machines. These coins can be traded for rare Pokémon cards and a Jigglypuff coin.

When Mark or Mint visits the Game Center for the first time, Ronald appears and gives away the Bill's PC card.


Coins are the prize tokens used in the Game Center. When Mark or Mint first visits the Game Center, a woman will give them ten coins. If Mark or Mint completely runs out of coins, the woman will give them ten more. Coins cannot be removed from the Game Center - they must be deposited with an attendant at the desk on the left side of the main reception area. Upon return to the Game Center, Mark or Mint may retrieve their coins once again.


Earned coins may be exchanged for any of several different prizes. Prize exchanges are conducted with the attendant at the desk on the right side of the main reception area.

Number of coins Prize
500 Jigglypuff coin
2000 Venusaur
2000 Mew
1000 Bill's PC
500 Three booster packs

Slot machine

Main article: Slot machine

The main feature of the Game Center is a series of six slot machines. These slot machines, unlike those found in the main series, are automated and the reels are not stopped by the player. The pictures on the slot reels are the six (at the time) TCG types.

There are two different levels of play: the white slot machines require a wager of one coin while the gold machines require three.

Coin flip

A girl in the Game Center offers a coin-flipping minigame. The game costs one coin to play. If Mark or Mint can get three or more heads in a row, they can win more coins as prize money, and if they get ten heads in a row the girl will give them a Mew Lv. 8. Any number of tails equals an automatic loss.

Evolution machine

There is a special machine in the Game Center that will "evolve" a Pokémon card. When one of the compatible Pokémon is selected, Mark or Mint will receive the evolved form of the Pokémon in the mail. This machine requires 20 coins and a Bill's PC card to operate.

The following cards can be obtained this way: Omastar, Machamp, Golem, Gengar, and Alakazam. These five cards correspond to the real-life Masaki Promos, which were distributed in a similar manner in Japan.

Card machine

At the back of the Game Center, there is a large machine which Mark or Mint can trade cards with. If they deposit five cards into the machine, a new card will be mailed to them.
