A Real-Life Pokémon Gym Is Coming To Japan

Adding to my already long list of reasons I need to move to Japan, Osaka will soon be home to the first real-life Pokémon gym.

The Pokémon Expo Gym is slated to open on November 19th, and is described by Inside Games as a “hands-on edutainment [facility] that offers Pokémon training tips and related activities, as well as the chance to [enjoy] a conversation with Pokémon.”

The gym’s programs even have themed-names like “Charizard’s Battle Colosseum” and “Gardevoir’s Control Score.” And the “Pokémon Expo Gym Gear” app will allow Trainers to track their progress and rankings.

Check out more pics after the break…
