Japanese arcade game 'Pokemon Gaole' being discontinued in Fall 2020

Goodnight, sweet Poké...

The Japanese Pokemon arcade game "Pokemon Gaole" will sadly be discontinued in Fall 2020, Takara Tomy has announced. This means the machines themselves will no longer operate, and production of any new cabinets will obviously come to an end. Membership services will close on September 30, 2020, so it seems likely the game itself will get its discontinuation around the same time. The date of shutdown will be dependent on the individual stores operating the machines.
