This festive season, Changi Airport became the lair for the ultra cute pocket monsters from Pokemon GO. These monsters have taken Singapore, and the world, by storm. Furthermore, to launch the year-end festivities, Changi Airport showcased the largest Pikachu parade ever seen on the island, on 18 November. Ten life-sized Pikachus performed at Terminal 3, against the backdrop of an 8-metre gingerbread house and a larger-than-life 7-metre tall Pikachu. There was also a multi-sensory light show, music and dancing trees to entertain the audience.
