The Pikachu Jet TR’s livery will feature Pokemon from the series’ first two generations. Lapras, Meganium, Psyduck, Pichu, and Celebi will accompany Pikachu in decorating the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. The same Singaporean plane will also fly to destinations other than Tokyo, such as Seoul in South Korea.

The Japanese press release added that The Pokemon Company will hold more Pokemon events in Singapore. The three-day “Pikachu Weekend in Singapore,” set to run on November 18-20, 2022, will include a Pikachu night show at Marina Bay and a Pokemon GO Safari Zone at Gardens by the Bay.

Singapore will be the second location outside Japan to receive an official Pokemon airplane livery. In late July 2022, The Pokemon Company announced that Taiwan’s China Airlines will be the first non-Japanese airline to fly a Pokemon-themed plane. While the company had previously worked with other airliners like Hokkaido’s Air Do, it started the Flying Pikachu project with the Japanese airliner Skymark in late May 2022.

Scoot’s Pikachu Jet TR will begin its first flight from Singapore to Tokyo’s Narita International Airport on September 9, 2022.
