Why buy from the Pokémon Center Japan website?
Although there are several Pokémon official online shops around the world, some goodies from these video game series are only available on the Japanese version of the Pokémon Center. For this reason, many Pokémon fans are browsing the pages of the Pokémon Center Japan website to see products they couldn't find on the sites in their area.
Does the Pokémon Center Japan online store ship internationally?
The official Pokemon Online Store in Japan doesn't ship overseas. If you wish to purchase Pokémon goodies, you will need to use a proxy shopping service, such as Japan Rabbit.
Order on Pokémon Center Japan step-by-step
In this part, I explain how to buy products on Pokemon Center Online Japan without moving from home. You'll need to use Japan Rabbit, our Japan proxy purchase service to get your items shipped to your address abroad.
Step 1: Visit the Japanese Pokémon Center website
You can access the Pokémon Center Japan online store here: pokemoncenter-online.com. The homepage can be confusing if you can't read Japanese. The primary means of navigation are:
- The search bar is on the left of the header.
- The main menu is under the heading.
By scrolling the home page down, you will see new products, personalized recommendations as well as the best-selling items, and finally the product categories.
Step 2: Search for a product
You can use the two navigation methods we mentioned in the previous part to find Pokémon products that might interest you.
You can enter your keywords, and then search for products, using the search bar on the left of the site header. You'll arrive on a search page listing the products that match your keywords. You can refine your search by clicking on the "更に詳しく探す" button. That will open a drop-down menu. There, you'll find several parameters that will improve your search and reduce the number of results on the page. Here are translations of some of these settings:
- ポケモンを選ぶ : Search by Pokémon.
- 発売日 : Search a product by release date.
- 商品カテゴリを選ぶ : Choose a product category.
- キーワード検索 : Your keywords.
- 金額 : Price range.
- その他 : Other criteria.
- 新着 : New products.
- 再入荷 : Restocked products.
- 在庫あり : Products in stock right now.
- オンライン限定 : Items that are only available online.
- 予約 : Pre-order goodies.
- ポケモンセンターオリジナル商品 : Original products only available in the Pokémon Center.
- ポケモンセンターオリジナル商品以外 : Products that you can find in other shops. That doesn't mean you can find them overseas.
Once you have selected all the criteria of your choice, you'll be able to click on the big gray button to lessen the size of the displayed items list. You just have to browse and choose the products that interest you by clicking on them. You'll then arrive on their product page.
The main menu of the Pokemon Center site has five links:
- The first link will bring you to a page listing all the new products in the shop.
- The second link lists special campaigns.
- The page behind the third link includes all product categories.
- The fourth link opens a mega menu in which you can select a Pokémon among the most popular ones. Each Pokémon has a dedicated page that displays all the products on which they are featured.
- The page under the fifth link lists products by popularity.
You can select any of these links to access products on the site. Once you have found an item that interests you, click on it to access its product page.
Step 3: Copy the product link on Japan Rabbit
Once you are sure you want to buy a product, all you have to do is go to the Japan Rabbit app. Then, you just have to copy the URLs of the products you are interested in one by one in the "Product Link" field. To copy a URL, you need to have the product page open. Click on the address bar of your browser, then press Ctrl+A at the same time to select the entire URL. Finally, copy the address by clicking Ctrl+C at the same time. After copying all the product links you want to buy, all you have to do is validate your order. Our team will purchase the products for you. You will receive a notification when we'll collect your package at our office in Tokyo. From this moment, you will be able to choose your international shipping method. Then, all you have to do is wait until your package arrives at your place.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why use a proxy seller and not eBay or Amazon to get Japan-exclusive items?
It is often cheaper to go through a proxy shopping service than to use more well-known marketplaces to buy Pokemon by-products from Japan. By choosing a proxy buyer, you will reduce the number of intermediaries between you and Pokémon Center Japan Online. When you buy on eBay or Amazon, sellers have to pay a share of their revenue to these platforms. This part is always reflected in the price paid by the buyer, so on you! By using a proxy purchase service, there is only the proxy buyer between you and the online store on which you buy the products. Japan Rabbit pricing is transparent, so you know exactly what you'll pay before we validate your order.
