Pokémon Show Up For Osaka 2025 World Expo

Pokémon Show Up For Osaka 2025 World Expo

Nintendo have thrown some weight behind the race for Osaka to host the World Expo in 2025. There are a few contenders in the shortlist covering Yekaterinburg in Russia, Baku in Russia and Osaka.

Osaka is quietly confident of its chances seeing as they previously hosted in 1970 and have the experience needed to host such an event. But just in case, the video below has been put together to fully illustrate the point.


The video showcases the best spot for the expo which is Yumeshima Island with a beautiful natural landscape. Just in case Osaka does win the bid, preparations are underway which is also shown in the video. And you can’t have a video showcasing Japan without having some Pokémon in there. So expect to see Eevee, Pikachu, Charizard and more!

Even Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe shows up and delivers a speech…albeit in an awkward manner. Hopefully Osaka wins the bid, we’ll let you know how it goes.
