Jakarta, 22 October 2019 – Calling all Pokémon fans! Come down to the Lotte Shopping Avenue from 26 to 27 October for a weekend of Pokémon excitement! Highlights include witnessing the new 2nd Series Kebangkitan Legenda making their debut at the Final of the KFC Series! This official Pokémon Trading Card Game event is organized by homegrown games publisher, AKG Games, in association with The Pokémon Company.
Launched in 1996, the Pokémon Trading Card Game is one of the most popular trading card games in the world. Since the launch of the Bahasa Indonesia version of the Pokémon Trading Card Game in August, local interest in this game has skyrocketed! Indonesians have responded favourably to the game’s blend of strategic gameplay and friendly sportsmanship. This weekend will see the premiere of the 2nd Series Kebangkitan Legenda. Indonesia’s Pokémon trainers can now look forward to exciting new cards such as Zoroark GX, Gardevoir GX and Decidueye GX.
Another highlight at Lotte Shopping Avenue is the Final of the KFC Series. Over 400 trainers will pit their card decks against each other for an opportunity to secure privileged access to the Indonesian Championships in May 2020. The Indonesian Champions will be invited to test their skills against the world’s best at the “Pokémon World Championships” to be held in London, August 2020. As an added benefit, the overall champion of the KFC Series will win the “KFC Golden Pass” which provides one year of KFC meals! Pokémon fans can also have a great time if they are not competing. On 27 October, Pokémon newbies can attend tutorial sessions to learn the game’s basics while Pokémon enthusiasts can take part in fun matches and receive special giveaways.
“Following the premiere of the Bahasa Indonesia version of the Pokémon Trading Card Game, AKG Games has been encouraged by the enthusiastic response of our local Pokémon Trainers. We aim to cultivate a strong community of Pokémon trainers in Indonesia. This weekend’s festivities are an initiative for fans to develop friendships and experience Pokémon’s strategic gameplay in a fun-filled and wholesome manner,” said Mr. Felix Huray, General Manager, AKG Games.
