Pokemon Escape Room starts in Japan this July

Become a legendary Pokemon trainer.

SCRAP has partnered with Nintendo to promote the new movie, Pokemon: I Choose You. A Pokemon themed escape game will follow Ash Ketchum and Pikachu from the beginning.

The pair’s journey will involve finding the legendary bird pokemon, Ho-Oh. (Check out Ho-Oh in the image above!).

Players will get to choose one of three Pokemon – Charizard, Squirtle or Bulbasaur – at the start. Depending on which Pokemon you choose, the order of the puzzles will change in the game.

There’s also two levels of difficulty to choose from. The Doctoral Course is for adults while the Trainer Course is more suited for kids to teenagers.

The escape game will test each player’s knowledge of Pokemon and visit eight cities in Japan. The cities include Tokyo, Osaka, Hokkaido, Miyagi, Kanagawa, Aichi, Okayama and Fukuoka.

The official site already warns players that waiting in the lobby can take up to fifty minutes. Once inside, players will get to enjoy the Pokemon escape game for two to three hours.

You gotta catch ’em all(!) before the Pokemon escape game ends in December 2017.

Try to escape from SCRAP Entertainment: Rooms and Werewolves – Part 1

In an earlier blog post, we wrote about escaping from a haunted ship:
Real Escape Game – Escape From the Haunted Ship.

Now the company behind it, SCRAP Entertainment, which ran the original Real Escape Game , starting way back in 2007 – has a number of upcoming events in places such as Canada, Singapore, Taiwan, Japan and the USA. They reuse some of their room escape themes but move them to different locations, to showcase them to new audiences. This will be a two-part blog.

Escape From The Mysterious Room is being hosted again soon, in Sendai, Okayama, Kagoshima (all located in Japan) and Toronto (Canada). This theme appears to be one of the best introductions to the concept of room escape – an ordinary and normal room, with a desk, chair and some carpet. If a person looks further into it, things then become strange with clues and puzzles to solve.
