Free and open to all, guests had a wonderful time meeting Pikachu, enjoyed original Pokemon screening, costume contests and many more family surprises. Pokemon GO players also took part in walks and tours around BGC.
Here are some of the highlights of the fun event:
Pokemon fans trooped to the Globe ICONIC store at BGC for the first ever Pokemon Fest with some even wearing their favorite Pokemon character outfits. Guests had fun with Pikachu – from dance numbers to parades around the venue. Globe also held a meet & greet session with the Pikachus.
