Scoot’s Pikachu Jet can’t fly you to the Sinnoh, Hoenn or Alola regions (iykyk), but its current destinations, Tokyo and Seoul, are just as thrilling.


In Tokyo, there’s the Shibuya Pokémon Centre located at Shibuya Parco, or go on a Pokemon manhole hunt around Japan. And in South Korea, try your luck at local convenience stores for the Pokémon-themed breads that come with prized collectible stickers.
