Touring Pokémon event to travel to five more U.S. cities
||This local article reports on an event in a specific geographical location. It may not be relevant for all readers.
Pokémon Rocks America, a tour that has previously visited large U.S. cities such as Seattle and New York, has announced five dates and locations for its 2005 run.
A game featured on Pokémon.com allowed players to complete a crossword puzzle to reveal the five cities. The cities (and corresponding dates) revealed were:
- San Jose, California: September 17, 2005
- Phoenix, Arizona: October 1, 2005
- Dallas, Texas: October 8, 2005
- Chicago, Illinois: October 15, 2005
- Boston, Massachusetts: October 22, 2005
Pokémon Rocks America features Pokémon-related games, activities, and merchandise for fans of all ages. The tour also presents opportunities for players to download rare Pokémon, such as Deoxys, to their game cartridges. The tour consistently draws sharp criticism from many fans who complain that the tour is not accessible enough for those who do not live near large U.S. cities, denying them access to aforementioned rare Pokémon. Pokémon.com has so far rejected these claims.
