More of the popular “Poke-Lid” enamel manhole covers are coming to a new city in Japan this month. Four designs featuring various Pokémon have just been unveiled, each celebrating Toyohashi City and its culture.

The first Poke-Lid manhole cover features a very happy Typlosion who appears to be enjoying a fireworks festival. Summer festivals with homemade fireworks are popular in Toyohashi, which is probably what this sewer design represents.

The next cover features a Ribombee and a Grubbin, two bug-type Pokémon enjoying a field of beautiful pink flowers. Behind them is a train based on the Toyohashi Railroad public transportation system, which is an industry the city is known for.

The third cover also has the Toyohashi rail system transit in the background, this time with Starmie and two Charjabug in the spotlight.

Finally, the fourth Poke-Lid has a Vikavolt and a Kabuto holding a Fossil. These two Pokémon are surrounded by azalea flowers, which is the official flower of the city. Once again, there is a Toyohashi Railroad train in the background.

Like all other Poke-Lid manholes across Japan, these four will also serve as Pokémon GO Pokestop locations for visitors to use while playing the game.

Pokémon-themed sewers promote tourism in each of the Japanese cities where they are located. Each of the designs is beautiful and clearly recognizable to Pokémon fans, and there are now more than 200 across the country.
