This time around the four new colorful manhole covers have been installed in Kurashiki, Okayama Prefecture.

They portray the following Pokemon.

  •  Lucario
  • Beautifly with Poochyena
  • Grookey with Eldegoss,
  • Unfezant

As usual, each Poke-Lid will mark locations for PokeStops compatible with Pokemon GO.

You can see what they look like below, alongside a couple of pictures from the official press release portraying the unveiling ceremony in Kurashiki, and a full image with all the current Poke-Lids.

The trend started with the installation of the first Poke-lid portraying Eevee in Ibusuki, Kagoshima prefecture, back in December 2018. As of now, 193 of the colorful manholes have been installed in seventeen prefectures including the seven showcased here.

Each Poke-lid is one-of-a-kind, sporting its own original design that doesn’t appear anywhere else. Of course, this comes with the benefit of encouraging many fans to visit local communities to snap collectible pictures, boosting tourism and business.

If you want to see more, you can check out those installed in Tottori prefecture featuring Sandshrew and Sandslashthe lids portraying Chansey in Fukushima prefecture, the batch in Hokkaido, featuring Vulpix, the group in Niigata prefecture starring Magikarp, another in Nara prefecture portraying a bunch of different Pokemonthe previous batch in Ogasawaraanother group in Kyoto, the previous Exeggutor batch in Miyazaki prefecture, and more in Hokkaido, on top of a video from a few months ago showing how the Poke-lid are made.

Recently, the franchise has also been featured on another airliner focusing on Pikachu and one featuring Exeggutor.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
