Finding a Wild Snorlax in Brunei!

Finding snorlax in brunei
Posted by: Abie  /   Category: Whats in Abie's Mind   /   No Comments

Pokemon Go has been a global phenomenon among mobile gamers and the Brunei youth is no exemption.

Pokemon Go trainers are slowly making Brunei’s nightlife more active than before. Previously, establishments in central cities will close around 8:00pm – 10:00pm due to the lack of customers during late hours. But when Pokemon Go was released in Asia,  Brunei’s night life has improved dramatically with countless people going around parks and central cities to play the famous mobile app game. As per our personal observation, we see Pokemon Go trainers go round the city during after office hours (6:00pm) until midnight (12:00am).

As locals may have noticed, establishments in Brunei are taking advantage of this event as they tend to host their own Pokemon Go related promotions for their shops. Some of these promotions go from giving away discounts for having specific Pokemons, to giving away items if you are able to catch certain Pokemons on their areas.

Recently, we discovered that some trainers are devoted in hunting rare pokemons in Brunei. Although there is no solid proof on the specific locations of these rare Pokemons, word of the mouth says that some of the rarest pokemons including “Snorlax” and “Onyx” are being found in 3 locations:

  • Bukit Shabandar
  • Damuan Park
  • Kiulap Area near Seri Q-lap Mall

One of the trainers who was lucky enough to find a Snorlax was kind enough to provide us a screenshot of how a “Snorlax” look like when caught:

The trainer who gave us the screenshot told us that he was able to catch the rare Snorlax in Bukit Shabandar while he was jogging early in the morning.

The trainers we interviewed were also kind enough to provide a list of some of the pokestops available in Brunei. Although the list is not complete, it may give trainers an idea where to refill their pokeballs and potions:
