We’re not kidding when we say that Singapore has been hit with a case of Pokémon fever. Not only did we get our very own Pokémon Go Safari Adventure in April, hardened fans were also treated to the theatrical release of the highly-anticipated Detective Pikachu earlier this month. And now, the pocket monsters are set to descend upon Singapore this upcoming June holiday at the first-of-its-kind Pokemon Carnival!
From 15 to 30 June 2019, Sentosa will be holding its inaugural Pokémon Carnival at Sentosa Cove Village. This marks the first time in Asia where all 403 Pokémon hailing from the region of Alola make their debut appearance for a photo opportunity of a lifetime.
They are also a key feature in the Pokémon Adventure hunt that you can participate in, where you can grab yourself Pokémon plushies by answering a couple of questions about the various Alolan Pokémon. Not sure if you’re up for the challenge? Hints are scattered around Sentosa Cove Village via QR codes – just keep a lookout for the Pokémon standees!
In addition to the main attraction, the carnival includes other fringe activities such as Pokémon-themed carnival games, the crowd-favourite Pikachu Parade as well as meet-and-greet sessions to get up-close with the yellow pocket monster.
For the snap-happy Pokémon trainers, you’ll be happy to note that there will also be Pokémon inflatables (including a five-metre tall Pikachu!) and ball pits around the carnival, so you’ll definitely be able to capture that picture-perfect moment for the ‘gram. Once you’re done for the day, you’re invited to unwind under the stars for a special screening of a Pokémon movie at Sentosa Cove Village!
