Pokémon Go for Singapore launched on 6 August. If you haven’t heard about it, you’d have seen people playing it on the streets: their eyes glued to their phone and their fingers swiping furiously.
In the mobile game, you catch and Pokémon and collect goodies from Pokestops to help with your adventure. The game combines maps with augmented reality so the fun moments are when you’re “catching” a Pokémon in real life.
At RWS, we’re Pokémon trainers too so we went around the Resort and beyond to catch Pokémon and find Pokestops to collect items and stock up on more Poke Balls.

Pokestops at Resorts World Sentosa
Where to find Pokémon GO gyms around Resorts World Sentosa.
The game isn’t just about catching Pokémon. If you are looking for gyms to train your Pokémon, here are some of them:
- One at the midpoint of Sentosa Boardwalk [Reverie – Musical Journey]
- Two at VivoCity at HarbourFront: [Orange and Blue Bubblemen and Water Feature at VivoCity]
- Two at Resorts World Sentosa [Universal Studios Singapore Globe and Autobot Evac inside USS]
- At least four on the rest of Sentosa Island [Merlion, Siloso Fountains , Southern Most Point of Asia and Bridge to Palawan Island].
If you know of more gyms, do let us know in the comments so we can update the map.
Keep safe when playing Pokémon Go
Safety Guide :
- Stay clear from restricted areas – they are out of bounds for your safety.
- Be cautious when navigating dim and busy areas. We heard there are many water-type Pokemon spawning at S.E.A. Aquarium but be aware of your surroundings unless you wish to bump into someone, or onto a glass tank.
- Observe park rules at Universal Studios Singapore. It is dangerous to be catching Pokemon while on the rides, attractions and shows.
- Stay alert and watch out for guests and even characters on the move. You can’t ‘catch ’em all’ but you can definitely snap a photo with them.
- Free Wi-Fi is available within Universal Studios Singapore. Connect with us and share your adventures on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and #rwsmemories and #rwspokemongo.
- For the month of August, Pokémon trainers can visit Adventure Cove Waterpark and S.E.A. Aquarium at only $51 (U.P. $68).
