Pokémon Wonder: an Atypical Theme Park in a 4,500-Square Meter Forest

The Pokémon Company announced that the new theme park inspired by nature is going to be open for a limited time from July 17, 2021, to April 3, 2022.

A 48,000-square foot forest where the Pokémon Wonder theme park is going to open soon is located behind Tokyo’s largest amusement park Yomiuriland. The truly magical forest remained untouched for the past two decades which makes the experience even more special. In the forest, the visitors will become Pokémon researchers trying to find Pocket Monsters of all colors, shapes, and sizes hidden in the grass, beneath the trees, and underneath the rocks.

As we can tell from the teaser video, every Pokémon is handcrafted using natural materials — leaves, stones, straw, and others. This is a graceful continuation of the entire "reconnecting with nature" idea of the theme park. 

As the enthusiastic Pokémon researchers enter the park, they are given an orientation explaining what they should be looking for and how. A print-out explains where the Pocket Monsters might be hiding and how to spot them. Considering that Pokémon was inspired by kids collecting bugs, this is probably the most accurate real-life Pokémon adventure one can ever imagine. Finding the little guys in the forest is going to be way more tricky than it is in Niantic's Pokémon GO for example. 

Good luck trying to catch 'em all now.
