POKEMON The Movie: The Power of Us has debuted at Resorts World Genting.
The exclusive screening of the animated movie is yet another reason for fans of Pokemon to make a trip up the mountain for a Pokemon-themed extravaganza.
Set in Fula City, the 93-minute film features the iconic legendary Pokemon Lugia, the latest mythical Pokemon Zeraora and the star of the Pokemon anime Ash Ketchum and his trusty sidekick Pikachu.
Centred on the annual Wind Festival in the city, the movie chronicles the adventures of several characters – including a young athlete, compulsive liar, shy researcher, antisocial old woman and little girl with a big secret – as they work together to save the festival from being derailed.
Pokemon The Movie: The Power of Us premiered in Japan on July 13, 2018, and can be viewed at Genting International Showroom until Feb 24.
Beyond the movie, there is also a plethora of Pokemon-themed activities to indulge in as part of the first Resorts World Genting Pokemon Festival.
Seek and snap photos with 32 life-sized Pokemon figurines placed all over SkyAvenue mall, frolic with a 6m inflatable Pikachu at Pikachu Land at Skytropolis Funland, become your very own Poké Ranger with the Pokemon Trainer Programme, bounce around in the Pokemon Inflatable Challenge at the Arena of Stars Courtyard or shop for memorabilia at Malaysia’s first official Pokemon Pop-Up Store.
In keeping with the season, special Chinese New Year-themed Pikachu Parade and Pikachu Dance performances will be held at the Times Square stage in SkyAvenue daily.
Tickets for the film are priced at RM20 (includes a photo opportunity with the Pokemon mascots), and RM12 (movie only) with daily shows at 8pm.
Afternoon matinee shows at 4.30pm are also available until Feb 17 and from Feb 22 to 24.
