3DS Corner 2016, Malaysia’s Biggest Nintendo Fan Gathering, presents you Malaysia’s Pokémon GO Launch Party!
Pokemon GO just launched in Malaysia last Saturday on the 6th of August. Everyone was absolutely shocked but 3DS Corner has been preparing for this for months in advance. With the upcoming 3DS Corner 2016 this weekend, the Pokemon GO Launch Party has already secured a proper venue sponsor, several prize sponsors and media partners WITHIN 3 DAYS of the game’s release. Let’s take a look at what they have to offer at the Launch Party.
To get you started, there are THREE Pokéstops across the KDU College, Damansara Jaya. The 3DS Corner will be pumping Lure Modules into these stops throughout the entire event ( 10am – 6pm, both days ). That way, there’ll be plenty of Pokémon to catch and items to stock up on for everyone! All these 3 PokeStops are within 100 meters radius so there’s not much walking to be done to catch Pokemon!
It’s a fantastic venue but how do people go there? Well not only that it’s extremely accessible (smacked just a few minutes drive away from Petaling Jaya, Kuala Lumpur, Taman Tun Dr.Ismail and Subang Jaya), but even community favourite; Grab is involved! Grab is The Official Transport Partner of 3DS Corner 2016 ( the host of the Pokemon GO Launch Party).
With this incredible partnership, here is the perks for the event participants ;
- RM5 off 2 rides to/from KDU College Damansara Jaya (Promo Code Name: POKEMONPARTY)
- Valid on 13 – 14 August 2016.
- Valid for GrabCar (Economy) only.
- Valid for Cash or Cashless (Credit Card or Debit Card) payment method
It’s so easy to go anywhere with Grab!
Not only that, there will also be 4 Pokemon GO Photo Contests happening throughout the Launch Party. The prizes for each competition includes Official Pokemon Plushies (sponsored by Rukia Plush Heaven), Official Comic Fiesta Merchandise (sponsored by SAYS Youth Society) and Nintendo Gaming Merchandise (sponsored by Impulse Gaming).
Winners for these contests will be announced at 5pm, Day 2 (14th August 2016) and must be present at the Prize Giving Ceremony else will forfeit the rights to claim the prize. Contestants must show their Facebook accounts on their phones to prove their identity.
