Pokémon continues to grow as the largest entertainment franchise of all time. Thanks to its powerful reach, The Pokémon Company constantly engages in partnerships and collaborations to expand the brand’s presence. We recently told you about a great attraction that would allow fans to connect with nature and today the company announced a new initiative that will not only delight fans of paleontology and children who love dinosaurs, but also fans of the franchise. in general.
We say the above because today The Pokémon Company gave a glimpse of the Pokémon Fossil Museum Tour, which, as its name suggests, will be a paleontology exhibition with the theme of fossil Pokémon.
The great attraction of this collaboration is that visitors will not only be able to learn more about real extinct species that lived millions of years ago and see their fossils, but the relationship with fossil Pokémon will be shown, by the hand of excavator Pikachu, which will serve as guide to this exhibition.
