Adorable Pokémon subway trains start service in Tokyo

Starting this past Sunday, special Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! Tokyo Metro trains have been making commutes more enjoyable.

Pokémon plastered trains are running on both the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line and the Marunouchi Line. Ride ‘em while you can!
Riding the Pokémon subway trains is really a 360-degree experience. In addition to all the character artwork on the walls and overhead on posters and monitors…

Officially called the Pokémon Pikavee Special Trains, the carriages are a promotion for the upcoming Nintendo Switch Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! video games, which are scheduled for release in November. But that doesn’t mean the rest of the Poké-pantheon isn’t represented, as passengers include Magikarp…

there are only two things to be sad about regarding these mobile sources of fan joy. First, there are only two Pokémon Pikavee Special Trains, one running on the Ginza subway line (between Shibuya and Asakusa) and the other on the Marunouchi Line (between Ikebukuro and Ogikubo), and the line’s operator doesn’t make public the schedule of when the Pocket Monster train pulls into each station. Second, the trains are a limited-time deal, running from now until August 30.
