Pokémon fever hits Resorts World Genting at Malaysia’s First Ever Pokémon Festival


Pokémon has taken over Resorts World Genting this Christmas 2018 and Chinese New Year 2019 and it is cuteness overload….


From 1 December 2018 to 28 February 2019, the Pokémon Festival @ Resorts World Genting will bring the colourful creatures from Nintendo’s best-selling videogame series 6,000 feet above sea level to frolic, play and captivate guests with their amazing powers and adorable nature…


and I promise you you will be charmed by their cuteness and will feel like wanting to hug and squeeze them.. because that was how I felt when I laid my eyes on them..


Continuing the long tradition of live Pokémon events worldwide – including the annual Pikachu Outbreak in Yokohama– the Pokémon Festival @ Resorts World Genting will be a collection of events big and small taking place under the roof of the resort for three months. Lovable pocket monsters that have become pop culture icons like Pikachu, Eevee, Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Charmander will be displayed in the SkyAvenue, Resorts World Genting, along with dozens of other Pokémon species to celebrate Christmas and usher in 2019 Chinese New Year..


I know I was so mesmerized by the world’s tallest Pokémon tree which was unveiled at the Skytropolis Funland… it came decked with hundreds of Pokémon decorations, this will also be the first ever Pokémon-themed Christmas tree ever in Malaysia – and the focal point for Pokémon fans young and old to gather and celebrate the magic of a Pokémon Christmas…


Fans can also get up close and personal with the most famous Pokémon of all at Pikachu Land. A giant inflatable 6-metre-high Pikachu, surrounded by 50 smaller Pikachu plushies, will make the Skytropolis Funland its temporary home, providing an irresistible opportunity to snap photographs with the lovable Pokémon with electricity powers – Pika! Pika! Oh my god!!!!! This is killing me… It’s so cute I wanna dieeeee….


Track down all 32 of these Pokémon creatures if you can…. These special characters will be unveiled in 4 stages at Level 3, SkyAvenue (1st Dec 2018 onwards), Level 2, First World Plaza (15th Dec 2018 onwards) and Symphony Stage, Level 1, SkyAvenue (10th Jan 2018 onwards).


Over the duration of the Pokémon Festival @ Resorts World Genting, there will also be Pikachu Parade taking place at various times daily on Level 1 of SkyAvenue mall, featuring 8 life-sized dancing Pikachus…. Squeeeee

For Christmas, the parade will be a winter-themed extravaganza, with Santarina, Giant Xmas Balls, and elves on two mini-floats.

For Chinese New Year, the parade switches to a raucous red-and-gold celebration featuring those 8 adorable dancing Pikachus led by a vibrant host, the show at SkyAvenue’s Times Square stage will be a dream come true for all Pokémon fans. The parade will take place at selected times and dates…

The aim of the Pokémon videogame is to become a master Pokémon trainer, and the Pokémon Festival @ Resorts World Genting allows you to live out this goal in real life. With the Pokémon Trainer programme, budding trainers can receive a trainer book from four specific Pokémon Trainer Stops set up across the mall. With this precious book in hand, the newly-empowered Pokémon Trainers can tackle various missions and quests spread across the resort, from snapping photos with rare Pokémon to solving challenging puzzles; once the training is complete, trainers can present their finished trainer book to receive a set of 8 limited edition Pokémon stickers from Resort World Genting’s special Pokémon Pop-Up store… How exciting right…. Can’t wait!!! Different missions will be available for Christmas and Chinese New Year, allowing Pokémon Trainers to catch ‘em all, twice!

The Pokémon Pop-Up store is located at Level 3 of SkyAvenue Mall, the store will feature a huge array of premium merchandise and memorabilia imported directly from the Pokémon Centre in Tokyo, Japan.


Meanwhile do not forget to visit “Santorini” at SkyAvenue too where for once you can imagine being in Santorini and not worry about getting sunburnt because… it actually snows here…

This year, Resorts World Genting is taking a Mediterranean theme to its Christmas celebration with a Wintry Santorini above the Clouds from 28 November 2018 to 1 January 2019.


Specifically, to the island of Santorini in the Aegean Sea, where houses with brilliant whitewashes walls, deep blue-domed roofs and graceful windmills hugging steep cliffs have become an iconic picture of Greece
