Starting 29 January and every weekend until 20 February, furry Eevee will appear at 8pm for a 30-minute dance parade at Sentosa's Palawan Green, as Singapore continues to harness the power of Pokemon as part of a local tourism push.

The adorable rabbit-eared character first appeared in Singapore for an Eevee Dance Parade in December 2021, also held at Palawan Green.

Now for 2022, the second edition of the show will feature Eevee dressed in various ponchos representing each of its eight Eevee-lutions.

Tourists are also encouraged to play the Eevee digital game which has hidden away secret QR codes around the island, and where completing 11 missions will earn players a chance to win adorable Eevee prizes.

Pokémon trainers, fans and families alike can also win prizes while on-the-go daily. All they have to do is snap a photo of massive Eevee stickers plastered at MRT stations and bus interchanges, and tag @sentosa_island with #EeveeAdventure on Facebook or Instagram from now until 15 February, 2022.

This isn't the first time Singapore Tourism Board has tied up with Niantic, the American developer of Pokemon Go, for tourism campaigns. In 2020, the game added Pokemon Go locations which could be found in local attractions, hotels, F&B spots and tour ticketing counters — where gamers would see an in-app banner for the SingapoRediscovers campaign upon arriving at these locations.
