We’ve done enough swipping of fingers on our mobile gadgets and trying to become virtual pokemon masters. Now you can do it in real-life as Resorts World Sentosa brings the first-ever Pokémon Research Exhibition to S.E.A. Aquarium! So get ready to put on your lab coats and discover hundreds of different Pokémon!
Held for the first time outside Japan, the exhibition welcomes everyone to become scientific researchers for a day to discover the mysterious and colourful world of Pokémon.
To be opened to the public on 22 October, the Pokémon Research Exhibition provides visitors with opportunities to carry out the scientific processes of observation, investigation and data collection, and learn more about species classification with Pokémon as the subjects. All Pokémon trainer hopefuls will each choose a real-life PokéBall to accomplish one mission: to deduce the critter contained within their PokéBalls from clues gathered at various fun and interactive stations.
Pokémon Research Exhibition
The exhibition features eight areas spanning a total of 1,000 square metres. Visitors begin by choosing their preferred difficulty levels from three PokéBalls – a regular Pokéball (easy), a Great Ball (medium), or an Ultra Ball (hard) – before embarking on their mission. Each visitor has to choose four observation
machines and place the PokéBall into these machines that will generate clues such as the Pokémon’s distinctive characteristics and silhouettes. Using the collected evidence, visitors will attempt to guess which Pokémon is contained within the PokéBall.
Come face-to-face with Pokémon
Meet four larger-than-life Pokémon figures at the exhibition, and Pikachu will make appearances to greet fans and help them in their “research”! Don’t miss the epic Pokédex wall featuring more than 700 Pokémon in their colourful glory!
