In a vibrant celebration of all things Pokemon, Bali Province played host to the exciting Pikachu’s Indonesia Journey program, offering locals and tourists alike a delightful experience with their favorite pocket monsters while showcasing the beauty of Indonesia’s tourism.

Susumu Fukunaga, representing The Pokemon Company in Denpasar, expressed his enthusiasm for the event, which spanned two fun-filled days on March 2nd and 3rd, 2024, at the Puputan Margarana Niti Mandala Denpasar Field.

“We are thrilled to welcome Pokemon fans from all over Indonesia to Pikachu’s Indonesia Journey. Our aim is to spread joy and create unforgettable memories with Pokemon,” he exclaimed, as reported by Republika.

The decision to launch the event in Bali was strategic, allowing local Pokemon enthusiasts to immerse themselves fully in the unique Pokemon experience.

“It’s exciting to see how this event is not only bringing joy to fans but also boosting tourism in Bali,” Fukunaga added.

Pikachu’s Indonesia Journey is part of a larger initiative known as Pokemon Air Adventures, designed to reignite people’s passion for travel and enhance their journeys with the magic of Pokemon.

Following the Bali event, The Pokemon Company plans to extend the festivities to other cities across Indonesia, bringing Pikachu and its friends closer to fans nationwide.

During the two-day extravaganza in Bali, attendees were treated to a plethora of activities, including Pokemon GO, Pokemon Run, and various other engaging pursuits, all free of charge. Notably, the Pokemon Run saw an impressive turnout, with 3,500 participants from different parts of Indonesia.

By day, visitors enjoyed the Pikachu Splash Show, where water cannons doused the crowd in refreshing sprays, creating a playful atmosphere. Meanwhile, Pikachu paraded around the field, spreading joy wherever it went.

As night fell, the excitement continued with a captivating Pikachu dance show, featuring EDM-themed music and dazzling lights. Attendees were invited to join in the fun, dancing alongside their favorite Pokemon.

Adding to the excitement, the popular music group JKT48 took the stage alongside Pikachu, treating the audience to a memorable performance.

In addition to Pikachu, attendees had the chance to meet other beloved Pokemon characters, such as Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly, who star in the latest Pokemon anime series.

The event also featured photo opportunities with Pokemon mascots, as well as exciting game challenges with enticing prizes and exclusive Pokemon merchandise available for purchase.

“With these diverse activities, we hope to further endear Pokemon to the hearts of the Indonesian people,” remarked Susumu Fukunaga, reflecting on the success of Pikachu’s Indonesia Journey.
