There are plans to create a museum dedicated to Pokémon; however, it is quite unlikely that you will be able to check out the museum once it is completed in its current form.
The Pokémon Company is searching for someone to run a museum that is devoted to the history of Pokémon and to develop a site to preserve documents connected to the whole Pokémon brand in order to fill the job of an archivist. This person will also be responsible for building the museum.
The selected applicant for this post will “help set up and grow an internal TPCi Company Archive and Museum,” according to the advertising for the position. According to the description of the available position, “this person will collaborate with the TCG Product team’s Game Data Librarian to undertake large-scale inventory, develop policy, process, catalog, preserve, and other duties that will assist in establishing the company’s first internal archive from the ground up.”
The original advertisement, which Vice (link opens in new tab) brought to the attention of the wider public, has subsequently been taken down and replaced with a message that reads, “the job you are searching for is no longer vacant.” As a direct consequence of this, it is very conceivable that The Pokémon Company has made more headway in the hiring process. There is still a chance for interested parties to see the whole job description here at Nintendo Life (opens in new tab).
Despite the fact that the listing does not give a great deal of specific information on what everything would be preserved in the archive, one of the components of the archive will be “TCG samples.” Other components of the archive include “TCG samples.” The archivist is going to help in “the construction of the internal physical repository with knowledge of archival standards and best practices,” which is part of the plan for the archive to consist of both “digital repositories” and “internal physical repositories.”

Despite the fact that Pokémon is more than just its video games, organizations such as the Video Game History Foundation have been devoting their websites to the preservation not only of video games but also of the marketing and development materials that tell the story of how video games came to be and the impact they have had. Given that in the past, businesses have been notoriously terrible at documenting and preserving their own history, the fact that The Pokémon Company is beginning to save its own internal archive is encouraging to see. In the past, businesses have been notoriously bad at documenting and preserving their own history.
