A troop of 30 Pikachu characters from Japan will invade CentralWorld to give a funtastic dance show today at 6pm.
This is the first time in Thailand that you can see the sensational Pikachu dance specially designed for Thai fans. It's also said to be the greatest show of its kind in Asia.
The "Pikachu Dance & Parade Celebration" will see the yellow, mouse-like creatures dancing under the 15m-tall inflatable Pikachu and Christmas tree erected in front of CentralWorld. The dance will be directed by a Japanese team.
The event is a highlight of "The Great Celebration 2024" campaign which brings Pokémon, the super cute characters popular around the world, to create smiles to visitors at all 39 Central shopping centres, until Jan 7.
Besides the Pokémon-themed decorations and installation of Pikachu Thunderbolt Christmas trees, the campaign sees the adorable characters on tour to give an evening dance show at eight selected centres and the "Meet & Greet Celebration" session at 30 centres throughout November and December.
Another highlight is the country's first "Pokémon Play Space" pop-up offering a brand-new experience for Pokémon fans to enjoy Pokémon games on all platforms. They include a video game on Nintendo Switch, Pokémon trading card game, Pokémon Scarlet, Pokémon Violet and Pokémon Unite.
The pop-up is running at CentralWorld until Sunday and then will visit Central Westgate from Dec 8-17, Central Ayutthaya from Dec 20-31, and Central Rama II from Jan 5-16.
