And finally… Pokemon themed gym opens in Japan

A Pokémon-themed gym has opened in Osaka, Japan, the first of its kind anywhere in the world.

The gym is actually a selection of paid games spread across two floors, each one allowing its player to digitally interact with a wide variety of Pokémon. Also on site is a Pokémon-themed café and a giant Pokémon store, while the walls are adorned with all manner of franchise-relevant murals.

Games include bowling, boxing, and an interactive space map game.
