A successful Trainer has the right gear at all times. Get what you need at the following locations:

  • If you haven’t yet caught Pikachu, why not build your own? Build-a-Bear Workshop (Level 1, East) has Pikachu, and you can take one home today!

  • Can’t get enough of Pokémon? Head to GameStop (Level 2, East + Level 3, North) for more Pokémon video games!
  • Comfy, athletic clothing is key for a Trainer on the go. Fabletics (Level 1, South) is offering 10% off to anyone who catches Pokémon in Mall of America.


Pokémon GO is one of the most active video games we’ve ever seen, and it can be exhausting. Be sure to refuel at one of MOA’s more than 50 restaurants.

Please remember to always be alert as you wander the halls of MOA on the hunt for Pokémon. Be safe and have fun!
