Pokémon Center vending machines

The Pokémon Company International, whose United States headquaters are located in Bellevue, Washington, have installed a small number of Pokémon Center branded vending machines in nearby shopping malls. These machines sell a range of Pokémon merchandise including: "plush, video games, figures, Trading Card Game, and charms"[11]. The tags on the Pokédolls from these machines have unique North-West tags that are yellow, blue, and square in shape. The machines also feature games and demos via screens built into the sides[12], along with an interactive Pokédex.

Previously, the machines at the Tacoma and Alderwood malls were part of a larger kiosk that was staffed by Pokémon Company International staff who helped ensure the machines were running correctly, answered questions, and rang up the sales of a wide range of other merchandise located outside of the vending machines[13][14]. The Alderwood mall location closed in July 2012 due to leasing issues and the remaining machines are all now stand alone units.

Locations

As of April 11, 2020[11], there were machines installed at 4 malls in the Seattle area:
