Today, eight new Pokémon Utility Hole Covers, or PokéLids (Pokéfuta ポケふた) were unveiled at the Hokkaido Government Office. The eight new PokéLids feature Rokon and Aloan Rokon of the Hokkaido promotional team as well as depicting the Legendary Pokémon Dialga and Palkia. The lids are based on images of various landscapes in Hokkaido. These new lids will be installed in Asahikawa, Kushiro, Obihiro, Abashiri, Akaigawa, Higashikawa, Shari, and Erimo. Including the ones announced this time, there are now a total of 34 PokéLids in Hokkaido. Pictures from the press release have been added to an Imageboard thread
Each PokéLids is an original design and each is unique. The PokéLids will continue to be installed for years to come. More than 200 PokéLids have been installed already in locations throughout Japan and they will serve as an opportunity for many people throughout Japan and around the world to learn about the charms of Pokémon and Hokkaido.
The PokéLids that are installed will gradually become PokéStops for the location-based game Pokémon GO for smartphones.
