The Japanese prefecture of Kagawa will be recruiting the Pokemon Slowpoke for a special event taking place on April 12th through 30th.

Kagawa Prefecture is sometimes referred to as the “Udon Prefecture” due to the region’s local specialty of udon noodles, while Slowpoke is known as “Yadon” in Japanese. The event, known as “Slowpoke Paradise in Kagawa,” originated as an April Fools’ joke, with Kagawa claiming to be the “Yadon Prefecture.”

The event will include a stamp collecting scavenger hunt with prizes such as papier-mache Slowpokes and paper Slowpoke fans, a Pokemon Go AR photo contest, and Slowpoke Udon and other limited-edition souvenirs for sale. In addition, a Pokemon Center branch will be opening in JR Takamatsu Station, with highlights such as an appearance from Prefectural Governor Slowpoke, photo spots, and commemorative one-day train passes available for purchase.
