If a tropical Christmas stuffed with Pokemon sounds terrific, then you should head to Changi Airport in Singapore, which is currently playing host to Pokemon-themed Christmas events from now till February.

Much like last year's Star Wars themed event, which included an R2-D2 plane, the airport has been dolled up with Pokemon decorations this time around, including a giant inflatable Pikachu, which probably goes "Pika-chuuuuuuuuuuuu" if accidentally pricked.

The Snorlax Garden features gigantic Snorlaxes dozing, which as you may know, is a very Snorlax thing to do.
