The Pokemon Go craze has taken our sunny island by storm, with malls along the major shopping belt of Orchard Road planting Lures to attract Pokemon fans/shoppers. Companies like Razer has even organised their own PokeCrawl for their community at large.

And the craze seems to have spread to the major local telcos Singtel, StarHub, and M1, where each has announced their own little ways to entice Pokemon Go players to visit their participating stores. Even local Internet service provider, ViewQuest, has jumped into the PokeCrawl fray.

So if you’re looking to burn spend your weekend doing some Pokemon hunting, here’s what you can look forward to:
