Join Pikachu and his Pokemon friends to usher in the festive season at Changi Airport!

As we reported earlier this week, Changi Airport was preparing for the holiday season with a dash of Pokemon magic, and we had the opportunity to check things out right at the launch of the festivities!

Arriving at Terminal 3, we were greeted by a parade of life-sized Pikachus, ten to be exact, against a backdrop of an 8-metre tall gingerbread house. Even cooler was the humongous 7-metre tall Pikachu, definitely not a Pocket Monster for sure! With the music blasting, dancing Pikachus, a multi-sensory light show, and even dancing trees, the audience present was entertained to say the least!

Over at Terminal 2, the distinct lack of everyone’s favourite electric mouse was compensated by another large presence. A life-sized Snorlax installation made for some really fun photos! Across all three terminals, the crowd was buzzing as children partook in Pokemon-themed dance parties and face painting. Game booths and Pokemon treasure hunt sites were aplenty to keep the burgeoning crowd occupied amidst beautiful festive delights throughout the airport.

It would be a waste if this was a one-off event, thankfully, these larger than life installations and activities will be available for everybody for two more months(till 11 February 2017)!

If just interacting with the Pokemon is not enough, pay a visit to the merchandise sections, where plushes, figures and other awesome Pokemon-themed items are up for grabs. There are even nine special plushes you can purchase with a minimum sum of $60 spent, and they include Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio from the just released Pokemon Moon and Sun!
