The Pokémon Company will host a special Pikachu Weekend from Nov 18 to 20 following the launch of Pokémon Air Adventures, a Pokémon-themed flight experience by The Pokémon Company and Scoot.

The Pikachu Weekend will consist of a night show at Marina Bay and a special event on the Pokémon GO mobile game that will be held at Gardens by the Bay.

Titled Pokémon GO Safari Zone: Singapore, this special Pokémon GO event can be accessed islandwide.

Players can also purchase a ticket and participate at the main site – Gardens By The Bay. Here players may chance upon the Pokémon Maractus.

During the event, lucky users might also encounter the Shiny Purrloin Pokémon for the first time.

Also making an exclusive appearance through the app is a special Pikachu donning a purple flower T-shirt. This particular version of Pikachu will appear for over one year starting from November 2022. 

Preceding this special weekend announcement was the unveiling of an exclusive Pikachu Jet by Scoot and The Pokémon Company.

The Pikachu Jet TR will take its first flight to Tokyo, Japan, on Sep 9. Fares for one-way tickets from Singapore to Seoul start from $231, and from $333 to Tokyo.
