The Facebook page admin of Aljunied GRC reposted the picture of one of its MP, Low Thia Khiang, taken with a Pokémon hunter in that constituency. The hunter, Louis Poh, said in his Facebook:

“Caught a Legendary Pokemon yesterday afternoon, lel (y’all noobs). He was walking alone through the crowded playground area, seemingly confused at seeing so many youngsters glued to their phones. And I was the only one who recognised, waved and greeted, then asked him for a photograph (pardon the unflattering fattening angle of myself xD). Honoured to meet you, sir. And happy 51st National Day to all.”

The opposition held constituency said in their Facebook that they are excited that rare Pokémon like Gyarados and Snorlax have brought people together in Bedok Reservoir-Punggol division of Aljunied GRC.

It added: “Like Pokémon themselves, our residents need to rest in the peace and quiet of home at the end of a long day. But unlike Pokémon, they can’t use stardust or candies to power up for the next day. Please do spare a thought for our residents and keep our PokéStops clean in your quest to catch ’em all. Here’s an Aljunied candy ?”
