People walking on the streets are mainly families, teenagers and some nerds like me,etc.

Oh well, I cannot stop thinking Pokemon has accepted for many people.  
When I was a teenager, a person who went to such Pokemon event was kind an insane nerd.
But nowadays,Pokemon is ” Things to enjoy with a family” “Acceptable things because it is familiar”. It is a great change.  

Besides, Pokemon vending machine introduced in the following video is apprently in Cosmo World, but I couldn’t find it… It is a pity(´;ω;`)

I found different one though…

The economic effects must be huge since the event is held every year.
