Pokémon Sun and Moon Launch Party at KDU College

Pokémon Sun & Moon is coming and Team Pika is organizing a Pokébash at KDU College, Damansara Jaya, Petaling Jaya on the 19th and 20th November 2016 from 10am to 6pm on both days!

This is the first launch event to be officially supported by Nintendo and the organizers are going all out to make sure that this is the best Pokéthemed event to ever be held in Malaysia! There’s something to do for all fans of Pokémon starting with a “points system” that rewards you for being involved at the event as attendees can go around collecting stickers (that represent the points) which can immediately be redeemed for official Pokémon merchandise. These tasks can be as simple trying out Pokémon Sun and Moon at the demo stations, trying out Pokémon GO Plus, trying out the Pokémon Tretta arcade game and so much more!


For 3DS owners, you will of course be able to purchase Pokémon Sun & Moon and take part in a “Catch Them All” contest. There will also be an eSports focus on this event as there will be Pokémon tournaments and Pokémon Video Games Championships will be a feature at the event as guest eSports speakers from Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia will be present during the VGC Panel.


For the rest of us without a 3DS, there’s still lots of fun to be had! There’s the arcade game Pokémon Tretta to play at the event with a Tretta tournament on Day 2 that could see you snag some prizes and be amongst the only people in the world to have a Pokémon Tretta chip that the tournament participants get! There’s also a Wii-U station to play some classic Nintendo games that you can enjoy free of charge. For old school fans, the event has set up a Pokémon Trading Card Game Tutorial & Challenge booth where you can play with a demo deck of cards that Toysbar will be providing.

What’s a Pokémon event without cosplay? Nothing but a Team Rocket ruse. But fret not, there’s cosplay galore as there will be professional cosplayers around and you are definitely invited to grab that Pikachu onesie and cosplay with the best of them! There will be a cosplay photo competition and runway competition sponsored by Cup Cat Studio and Comic Fiesta. Last but not least, there’ll be plenty of Pokémon merchandise looking to part you with your hard earned cash as well but what better way is there to spend?

Come like these cool cats...!

Mark your calendars on 19th and 20th November and we will see you at KDU!
