Jewel Changi Airport Press Release Quotes

With stores across key cities in Japan, Pokémon will make its foray into Singapore. Pokémon Center Singapore will be the brand’s only permanent retail store outside of Japan. The store will offer an array of Pokémon merchandise sold in Japan as well as original merchandise exclusively created for Jewel, such as toys, stationery, Pokémon Trading Card Games and video games.

“We are pleased with the positive outcome from the Pokémon event we held at Changi Airport a few years ago. It served as an excellent promotional platform not only in Singapore, but also across the Southeast Asia region. Jewel is located at the heart of Changi Airport where we can expect visitors from Singapore and international travellers. We believe that by choosing Jewel as the venue for our first overseas store, we will see positive results across our brand over the coming years.”
Susumu Fukunaga, Corporate Officer, The Pokémon Company

Special Footage of Meltan in the Wild / How to Catch Meltan

Following the recent discovery of Meltan, The Pokémon Company International, Niantic, Inc., and Nintendo are now able to reveal more information on this new Mythical Pokémon and how it can be captured in Pokémon GO and transferred to Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! High resolution images from the press release have been added to an Imageboard thread.

Meltan

Revealed—Special Footage of Meltan in the Wild, ​​​​​​​Plus How to Catch This New Mythical Pokémon

Since the discovery of the new Pokémon, Professor Oak and Professor Willow have been hard at work conducting research into Meltan, and they have shared their latest findings in a brand-new video.


Pokémon GO players will be able to assist Professor Willow’s ongoing investigation into Meltan with the introduction of new Special Research tasks coming to the app this winter.

Players hoping to capture Meltan will be able to view its behaviour in an all-new video. It looks like Meltan is very curious and loves metal objects.


Generally, sending Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! will result in players receiving certain items in the app, such as Candies for the species of Pokémon sent. However, the first time players send a Pokémon from Pokémon GO to Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!, they can receive a very special item—a Mystery Box.

Once the Mystery Box is opened in Pokémon GO, Meltan will begin to appear in the game, and players can attempt to catch it in the same way as any other Pokémon. When Meltan has been caught, it can then be transferred to a GO Park in Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! Players can also get a Mystery Box for sending Pokémon to a friend’s Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! game. After it has been used, the Mystery Box will close and can only reopen again after a set time, at which point the player will need to send a Pokémon to their own or a friend’s Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! game.

Pokémon GO - Sinnoh Region Pokémon

Niantic has announced that Sinnoh Region Pokémon will be appearing in Pokémon GO soon but that there will also be some game balance changes as well.

Community Note: Upcoming Changes to Pokémon GO

Are you ready for a Sinnoh adventure? We’re excited to let you know that in preparation for the arrival of Pokémon originally discovered in the Sinnoh region, we are making two key shifts to the game balance in the coming weeks. These changes are based on Trainer feedback and are designed to promote an improved overall experience.

Changes to Pokémon Migration and Behavior
As you explore the world of Pokémon GO, the following changes will affect the Pokémon that appear around you:
  • We are making adjustments to weather and, moving forward, it will have a reduced effect on the rate at which Pokémon appear.
  • As you explore a given area, you will notice that a greater variety of Pokémon species will appear over time and at different rates.
  • Certain areas, such as parks and nature reserves, will now contain more varied Pokémon species.
Changes to Pokémon Effectiveness in Battle
We also wanted to use this opportunity to rebalance in-game battle mechanics. You may notice some of the following changes in the coming weeks:
  • CP values will be adjusted going forward to improve game balance.
  • HP values will be adjusted to close the gap between high HP Pokémon and low HP Pokémon.
  • Pokémon Defense and Stamina values will be retroactively rebalanced, allowing highly defensive Pokémon to be valuable in battle by outlasting opponents rather than simply running out the clock.
  • Defense values have also been slightly retroactively reduced for most Pokémon. Changes like these will help narrow the gap between Pokémon with the highest defensive stats and other Pokémon.
Moving forward, you can expect to see further tweaks designed to help Trainers and their Pokémon reach their full potential. We’re looking forward to experiencing these changes with you as we explore the world together! Let’s get out there and GO!
