PokéPark (theme park)

This article is about the theme park. For setting in PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure, see PokéPark (game).

Pokémon the Park 2005, or PokéPark, was, as its name implies, a theme park devoted to Pokémon. It was originally located on the former site of the Sasashima Cargo Station in Nakamura Ward, Nagoya, Aichi (Sasashima Live 24 Land Redevelopment Project Site) in Japan. It opened on March 18, 2005, and closed on September 25, 2005. It was located at Route 758.

Admission to the park was free, but there was a fee for each attraction visited. Prepaid e-money, or Edy cards, were available online and could be used to pay for attractions in the park. Pre-ordering a special PokéPark Edy card enabled holders to special offers and gifts. These cards could be pre-ordered from November 19, 2004 to February 28, 2005.

There are a total of twelve attractions in addition to a game arcade, an event stage, shops, and cafés. The park's attractions were prominently featured in animated form in "Hello! Thank You!", the fifth Pokémon Sunday ending.

After PokéPark closed in Japan, it was moved to Taiwan, where it was open from June 23, 2006 to September 24, 2006.

Chinese TCG Release Through Taipei Pokepark

This set is probably the most rare set to be found in Traditional Chinese. The set consists of 10 promotional cards released around the opening of PokePark (神奇寶貝樂園). Pokepark opened from 6/23/2006 to 9/24/2006 in Taiwan, Taipei Shilin District in an attempt to create more interest in the Pokémon franchise. The cards chosen to represent the Taipei Pokepark in Chinese were selected from POP Series 2, whereas the course completion award was selected from POP Series 4 since that was the set that had the Pokémon Fan Club card. Aside from the course completion award and the Championship Arena card; each card could be obtained by visiting the park on different days of the week in the last week of the park's duration of being open.
