I recently realized that there’s something of an unofficial Waku Waku +NYC mascot in the Pokémon universe!
In a previous post, I wrote about how Lolita fashion has quite a presence in Pokémon. In particular, we have Gothitelle.
Now think about this:
- Gothitelle, of course, represents Lolita fashion, one of our big attractions at Waku Waku +NYC
- Pokémon is a symbol of Japanese gaming and how Japanese pop culture has spread around the world
- The game Gothitelle comes from, Pokemon Black and White, is based on New York City (seriously, compare it to a map of Manhattan!)
Who better represents what Waku Waku +NYC is all about? Gothitelle is awesome!
