To celebrate the upcoming release of Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu And Let’s Go Eevee for the Nintendo Switch, Pokémon themed trains are springing up in select areas of Japan.

More specifically, the Marunouchi lines and Tokyo Metro Ginza are the only services boasting the Pokémon makeover.

The train carts have been entirely revamped to promote the Let’s Go launch later this year, however only on the inside. From the platform, the exterior of the train looks like an ordinary cart.

However when the doors are opened commuters are greeted to an illuminated re-imagining of the in-game world of Let’s Go, and it will remain this way until August 30th.

Personalized outfits for Eevee and Pikachu decorate the walls; Misty, Professor Oak, and Brock are seen throughout the carts; the floor’s a mapped-out route from Kanto; and trailers are exhibited on screens above the seats.
