Fossil Pokémon in Natural Science Museums in Japan!

A new collaboration has emerged at The Pokémon Company! With the Natural Science Museums in Japan starting this summer, visitors will be able to find skeletons (models) of the two fossil pokémon Tyrantrum and Bastiodon !

An unexpected collaboration!

The Museum of Natural Sciences has joined forces to create the Pokémon Fossil Museum exhibition (ポケモ化博物館)! The exhibition will take place at the Mikasa City Museum in the summer of 2021, then travel through Japan! The exhibition will take place at the National Museum of Nature and Science in spring 2022!

This exhibition was created by Daisuke Aiba (相場佑) of the Mikasa City Museum along with other museums in Japan and Pokémon company. The theme of the exhibition is “Fossils and Pokémon Fossils” a mixture of the Pokémon universe and paleontology universe with the fossils that exists on our planet! .

While experimenting with basic scientific methods of observation and comparison, visitors can discover the shapes and ecology of these creatures, as well as the similarities and differences between fossil research in each world, and learn more about paleontology while having fun.

What is the Pokémon Fossil Museum?

If you play Pokémon, you must know the fossil Pokémon, in the games you can find fossils and then bring them to a scientist who will “resuscitate” from the borrows a real Pokémon that can later join your team!

In this exhibition, visitors can enjoy learning paleontology by comparing fossil Pokémon with fossils found in our real world and discover similarities and differences.

If you are in Japan, be sure to visit the exhibition, guided by Professor Kaseki (Professor of Fossils博) of the Pokémon World with Pikachu (発掘ピンュ) !

Exhibitions

  1. Let’s look at the similarities and differences in the illustrations of Tyrannosaurs and Tyrantrum!
  2. A life-size skeletal model of a fossil Pokémon! Let’s compare this life-size skeletal model of a Pokémon to a true paleontological specimen!
