A Pikachu night show took place at The Promontory@Marina Bay on 18 November 2022 and is scheduled to run again over the weekend on 19 to 20 November 2022 from 7.30 pm, weather permitting. It is part of the Pokémon Air Adventures campaign in Singapore.
Pikachu Night Show
During the night show, nine Pikachus, led by Afro Pikachu, entertained the audience with a music and dance performance. There was also a surprise production using 500 drones, which decorated the night sky of Marina Bay with special light structures, which included many different Pokémon Characters, along with aeroplanes.
The night show is free to watch, but entry will be capped based on the number of visitors and may be subject to change or cancellation in the event of wet weather.
The drone show originally gained massive popularity in Okinawa and was specially created to celebrate Pokémon GO’s sixth anniversary. It now live in Singapore for the first time outside of Japan.
Pokémon Air Adventures
The Pikachu night show is part of Pokémon Air Adventures, a CSR initiative by Pokémon. The campaign was kickstarted earlier this year by a collaboration with Scoot which included the unveiling of the Pikachu Jet TR.
Other Pokémon activities taking place this weekend include the Pokémon GO Safari Zone at Gardens by the Bay. Pokémon GO players can look forward to a fun weekend of Pokémon Air Adventures gameplay, with ticket holders encountering Pokémon characters themed around Pokémon Air Adventures, such as Flying Pikachu and Lapras.
Susumu Fukunaga, Corporate Officer, The Pokémon Company shared, “The Pokémon Air Adventures campaign is an exciting initiative that hopes to create an opportunity for people to start travelling freely. As long-time travel restrictions come to a close, we want to continue doing our part to encourage adventure again, the Pokémon way. Having done this in Okinawa and Taipei, we are proud to have achieved this here in Singapore, today.”
