Pokemon Co. and Hokkaido prefecture are teaming up for some sort of future collaboration. While details of their pairing haven't been shared yet, there was an official ceremony held with local government to make the collab official. During that ceremony, Alolan Vulpix and Vulpix mascots stopped by to oversee the event.
I just can't get over that video footage. Two people in Pokemon costumes wandering around an official government building, complete with members of that government. It's just absolutely surreal to me, and I love it!
