Beautiful Pokémon Prints Targeted at Collectors Available at the Pokémon Center

Limited Edition Pokémon Woodblock Prints available at the Pokémon Center.

Limited edition Pokémon woodblock prints are available in the Pokémon Center shop. The two wood prints have been inspired by traditional works of art, with a Pokémon twist!

The first, named the Port Of Vermillion City print, shows a variety of Kanto Pokémon being put in a scene of typical port life. It is based off a landscape from Hiroshige Utagawa’s 53 Stations of the Tokaido.

The second print, named the Silent Bridge, depicts a battle between Red’s Pikachu and an angered woken Snorlax. It’s inspired by Yoshitoshi Tsukioka’s Gojo Bridge, an Episode from the Life of Yoshitsune, a piece which shows two samurai battling.

Both of the prints are made in Japan using a traditional ukiyo-e style, which was originally used during the Edo period. The technique is known for the meticulous process a piece has to go through while being made.

Each print is set to cost 450 USD due to all the handiwork involved in creating them. There are a limited amount of 50 prints for each piece.
