Indulge in Pokémon mania at Changi Airport
18 Nov 2016 – 11 Feb 2017
With the release of Pokémon the Movie: Volcanion and The Mechanical Marvel, it’s safe to say Pokémon fever isn’t dying down any time soon. If you can’t get enough of the adorable pocket monsters, head to Changi Airport where a Pokémon-themed Christmas celebration is underway. Check out the giant Pikachu at the Terminal 3 Departure Hall; there’ll be opportunities to meet Pikachu on weekends in December.
Pokémon trainers, snap a picture with each of the 26 Pokémon located around the airport and upload it to social media for a chance to win exclusive Pokémon merchandise. Your kids will love the Christmas trees decorated with the cuddly Pokémon plush toys. You can also catch a dazzling lights show and purchase plushies at $9.90 each with a minimum spend.
