Where to find the Giant Poké Ball in Shanghai

If you’ve ever taken a trip to China, the giant Poké Ball in Shanghai is one of those things you need to skip off of your bucket list as a Pokémon fan.

This giant The Poké Ball Building is the centerpiece of a shopping mall called Metro-City, located in Xujiahui. And if you’re wondering if the mall was built just to be Poké Ball, the answer is no.

The famous shopping mall was built in 1989 and serves as a huge landmark in Xujiahui for many reasons. Metro-City shopping mall has the usual mall stores like restaurants, cafes and cinemas on the top level. But what sets it apart from others is its solid base of being the electronics hub in the whole of Shanghai.

However, if you happen to drop by the Metro-City mall, make sure it’s at night. During the day, on the other hand The Poké Ball simply looks like a giant crystalline structure in the shape of a globe.

Although the building is a sight on its own, it pales in comparison to the aesthetic you’ll see at night when it turns into a giant. Poké Ball steals the eyes of both tourists and residents.

This giant Poké Ball was created as a form of promotion for the Anessa sunscreen product. Anessa is a Japanese company that focuses on skin care products that help protect the skin from harmful UV rays.

Starting February 2021, Anessa and Pokémon has teamed up to create a special line of UV sunscreens with various features Pokémon as a work of art of the bottle. The special one The Pokémon themed sunscreen comes in a total of six different varieties Pokémon from the Kanto region. And while starters like Charmander and Squirtle are available, Bulbasaur fans will need to hope for another Anessa x Future cooperative Pokémon.

Although people may not think of skin care when they think of Pokémon, Giants Poké Ball is sure to attract the eyes of many people. Who knows, maybe that sunscreen will come in handy as spring and summer get closer.

So if one of your life goals is to visit a real-life Pokeré Mart, this might be your best chance to fulfill your childhood dream.
