A 16-foot Pokémon Christmas tree is being erected in London

The Pokémon Company has announced that it will erect a 16 feet tall Christmas tree covered in Pokémon plush toys in London.

The tree will be featured at Westfield, White City between November 24 and December 4.

The tree will be covered in more than 800 Pokémon plush toys, and those who visit it will be able to make purchases from the online Pokémon Center via QR codes that will be part of the display.

According to The Pokémon Company, visitors who share photos of the tree on Instagram while tagging @PokemonNewsUK with the hashtag #pokemoncenteruk will be entered into a draw to win one of 12 giant Pikachu plush toys.

Those who aren’t able to visit the tree can also enter the competition from home by uploading “a photo of their favorite Pokémon Center plush toy in a wintery scene” to Instagram instead.

Last week The Pokémon Company announced the Poké Post Pop-up Experience, which will tour the UK, France and Germany this Christmas season.

The event will see fans get the chance to send a special present to someone, which includes a pack of Pokemon cards, as well as a new Pokémon Together promo card of Pikachu or Eevee.
