In Japan, there's an entire park dedicated to the sluggish Slowpoke Pokemon. This unique attraction is located in Kagawa Prefecture, which chose Slowpoke as its official ambassador. The reason behind this choice lies in the fact that Kagawa produces a lot of udon noodles, and in Japanese, Slowpoke is called "Yadon", which sounds similar to the name of this dish.

Now, in Kagawa, there's not only a Slowpoke Park but also public transport stops, restaurants, and even manhole covers adorned with images of this sluggish character.
