Head honcho of Razer Min-Liang Tan is a proud Singaporean. He often gives talks in conferences and schools here, and even made it to Forbes’ Singapore rich list at number 41. More recently he has spoken out on social media when the government announce that it plans to monitor the social impact that Pokémon GO will have on the local community, and later on released a followup to that initial statement.
Well now that Pokémon GO is finally out in Singapore, and in time for National Day to boot, Razer hasn’t forgotten its founders roots and have organized a mass get-together of players who want to be the very best.
First, a crash course on RazerGo.
Razer has been capitalizing on the hype since Day 1 when they released their own location based messaging app for Pokémon GO players called RazerGo, and it is currently the top rated top rated chat app for Pokémon GO on Android and iOS.
The app essentially lets users connect with other players, based geographic location, to share tips, tricks and locations,
Mr Tan even held a Facebook live session from his office in Singapore, the night before Pokémon GO was launched here (talk about impeccable timing sir), to talk in-depth about RazerGo and its functions, and how it can become your ‘unfair advantage’ when playing the game.
The Razer Pokécrawl
In commemoration of National Day, as well as in celebration of the recent launch of Pokémon GO in Singapore, today Razer has announced that they will be holding a Pokécrawl tomorrow.
With the meeting point in ION Orchard, starting on 1pm, the entire Pokécrawl will take trainers along the main stretch of Orchard Road, and finally ending at Cineleisure Orchard around 3pm.
The event is open to all players, regardless of whether you are an absolute pro, catching ’em all with that awesome curve ball, or if you’re just starting out, not knowing which starter Pokémon to choose even.
With this event, Razer hopes to gather fans and give them a chance to come together, meet in real life, to collaborate and learn from each other, which is also the same reason why Razer created RazerGo in the first place.
Head on over to their Facebook event page to keep up to date with the latest news of the event.
