We usually depart from Changi Airport in search of adventure, but recently, Changi Airport has become a dream destination to embark on a whimsical escapade with the Pokémon that have leapt out of the virtual world to spread festive cheer.
Pokémon masters assemble! If you want to be the very best like no one ever was, come catch the Pokémon fiesta happening now from 18 November 2016 – 11 February 2017. Loads of fun Pokémon related activities await you. All three terminals are decked out in festive Pokémon decorations, illuminating the space with festive cheer, and spreading joy to people of all ages.
The most magical Pokémon quest begins at Terminal 3 Departure Hall. Against a sparkling winter wonderland backdrop of glittering Christmas trees, candycane street lamp posts, and a giant gingerbread house, a towering larger-than-life Pikachu awaits to greet all visitors who stroll through this festive street.
The gingerbread house is home to Santa's Workshop and Mrs Claus' Confectionery. Peruse through the festive knickknacks and sweet treats in the fairytale-esque structure.
Take a photo to commemorate your adventure with the eight-meter tall Christmas tree shimmering with golden fairy lights and entirely decked out in cute Pokémon Christmas ornaments such as mini plushies and Poké Ball baubles!
You can also look forward to a musical and lights show of dancing trees and falling snow - taking place at 2pm, 6pm, 7pm and 8pm on weekdays and at an additional time slot of 5pm on weekends.
And perhaps the most exciting of all is that you can get up close and personal with the poster-boy of Pokémon, Pikachu. The meet-and-greet with the most beloved Pokémon in all of Poké history will be held at Terminal 3 Departure Hall near Check-in Row 11 on Saturdays & Sundays at 6pm & 8pm till 1 Jan 2017 (except 3 Dec). Due to time constrains, the meet-and-greet is limited to 80 families per session and only one photo per family.
A true Pokémon master has the uncanny ability of spotting a Pokémon anywhere. So be on the lookout for various Pokémon scattered across the airport.
Terminal 2 Departure Hall boasts a massive Snorlax display with three of the big, round and adorably lazy Pokémon simply lazing around a Christmas tree. You can even stand a chance to bring home the same life-size Snorlax plushie by spending at the airport if you are a Changi Rewards member. No Poké flutes needed!
To make the most of your Pokémon adventure at Changi Airport, be sure to give the Z-Moves activity kiosks a go! These kiosks can be found across all terminals where you can put your best trainer moves on display with your favourite Pokémon. Alternatively, have fun applying Pokémon-inspired filters on yourself at the face painting kiosks.
To find out where and join in the fun, simply access the event page
on your mobile and retrieve the QR code for scanning at the Z-Moves activity kiosk or face painting kiosk.
After you have participated in the Z-Moves or face painting activity, you have the option of saving the recorded videos so that you can share your experience with your friends across your social media platforms.
