Some of us are in our 30s and still wish we could live in the world of Pokémon. Living in Japan is second best, as The Pokemon Company often hosts special activities that allow fans to connect with the franchise. For example, an exhibition that combines real fossils with recreations of what the remains of a Tyrantrum would look like.
The good news is that now you don’t need a ticket to Japan to enjoy this experience, because The Pokémon Company and the Toyohashi Natural History Museum have created an experience that allows you to virtually visit this exhibition.
The experience is a delight for fans of the franchise, even if we can’t be in front of them. The experience was created as a way to educate kids and fans about real dinosaurs by combining a bit of information with the Pokémon they’ve inspired. The virtual experience allows you to walk through all the halls of the exhibition and even take ‘measurements’ to get a better idea of the scale of the fossils on display.

Pokémon fossils have been a part of the Pokémon universe since the first generation with the inclusion of the first five (Omanyte, Omastar, Kabuto, Kabutops, and Aerodactyl). Since then every new ‘region’ in the game features at least one duo of new mons. The franchise has even allowed itself to play around with the concept, with Pokémon Sword and Shield (the last official games) allowing four to be combined to create four different options as well.
