Friendly Pokemon mascots brought early festive cheer to 350 underprivileged children and their families at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) on Tuesday. They were among the first in Singapore to witness the launch of RWS' first Pikachu Wave Parade. The children also got to visit the Pokemon Research Exhibition at the S.E.A Aquarium and received Christmas gifts from RWS senior management. RWS will also be donating $10 to the Community Chest for every ticket purchased for the Pokemon exhibition this month - capped at $300,000.
