I am a Pokemon Pikachu fun eversince it was created many years back. And when the gaming app Pokemon Go was released, all the more my love for the pika grew and I did not fail to attend the first ever Pokemon Fest held by our friends at Globe.
Globe recently held the first ever Pokémon festival in the Philippines during Halloween weekend. Free and open to all, guests had a wonderful time meeting Pikachu, enjoying original Pokémon screening, costume contests and many more family surprises. Pokémon GO players also took part in walks and tours around BGC, Taguig.
Starting October 28, Pokémon GO trainers will find that Globe retail locations and charging stations have become PokéStops and Gyms in game, with more and more PokéStops sprouting across the country. To help spread more Pokémon GO joy, Globe will be working with its partners, namely Ayala malls, Puregold, Robinsons Malls and SM Supermalls. With this, players will be able to see more of these markers on their Pokémon GO apps for more chances of catching Pokémon to expand their Pokédex.
Globe will also ensure its customers have better accessibility to the app through different mobile offers. On Globe Prepaid’s leading GoSURF50 mobile promo, customers will be able to access Pokémon GO as one of the free apps within the bundle. Globe customers can also download the free Pokémon GO promo on the Globe Switch app. Included in the partnership are distribution rights to Pokémon merchandise, including digital connectors, cool gadgets and a selection of apparel that is perfect for the holiday season.
What was perhaps the highlight of this weekend event was the first ever visit to the country of John Hanke, known to be the brains and creator behind this sought after app, Pokemon Go who graced the event and along with Globe executives CCO Albert de Larrazabal and Senior Adviser for Consumer Business Dan Horran, officially sealed their exclisive partnership. Congratulations!
