The event itself in Washington is quite the experience for fans, especially the young ones. The location for the event is filled with all sorts of Pokemon-related materials, including massive balloons, booths, toys, and other merchandise.
Many fans just come to chill out in the lounge areas, play some games and meet up. The event acts as a convention where Pokemon related material is available everywhere you look.
The event is also an opportunity for fans to purchase Pokemon related toys and clothing that is not available anywhere else. A few notable examples are Pikachu and Piplup dressed as Indiana Jones, with an explorer’s hat, binoculars, and everything.
