The holiday season is here and what better way to end the year than meeting your beloved Pokemons! These beloved characters will arrive in the M Malls (Jurong Point, AMK Hub, and Swing By @ Thomson Plaza) from 18 November until 26 December 2022. Jam-packed with exciting and family-friendly activities, make sure to drop by these malls and “catch” these Pokemon-themed festivities.
This year alongside the release of the new Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, “trainers” could also catch a glimpse of the three newly introduced characters that are featured in the game — Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly. They’ll also be performing alongside Pikachu, Eevee, and Piplup in an adorable dance parade that you should not miss.
You can also pose and take photos with these cute characters by spending a minimum of $30 on a single receipt. Make sure to be the fastest as the photo session is limited to the lucky 20 people at each session.
