Taking over Japan one manhole at a time
2022 was a great year for the Pokémon Local Acts initiative, and clearly the organization has a lot more to share in 2023. As of today, we’ve learned that 3 more Pokémon-themed manhole covers will be making their way to Japan’s Mie prefecture very soon!
This organization’s goal is to beautify certain areas of Japan, while also attracting tourists to areas. One of the big efforts of the PLA has been replacing manhole covers with covers that spotlight Pokémon, and it’s been a great success so far.
This time around, covers featuring Oshawott as the main Pokémon will be installed. Oshawott will be flanked by Dewott, Machoke and Mime Jr. on these new covers, and you can see all three above.
