Which City Temporarily Changed Its Name To Promote A Video Game?

Mexico City
Oslo
Topeka
Perth

Answer: Topeka

In 1998, two years after its introduction in Japan, Pokémon came to America. The first stop on Nintendo’s national promotion tour? Topeka, Kansas which, in honor of the event, changed its name for the day to ToPikachu, Kansas.

Chuckle about it if you wish, but those folks in Topeka know how to hitch themselves to a popular star. By the end of that year, Nintendo had sold just shy of 10 million Pokémon games in the U.S. alone.
