Meeting real-life ‘pokemon’

Young fan will get to see animals resembling the cartoon characters during The Big Walk at Singapore Zoo.
Pokemon fan Natalie Wee, four, will be able to meet two real-life Raichu lookalikes — tree kangaroos Makaia and Nupela — during The New Paper Courts Big Walk.
This year’s walk will be held at the Singapore Zoo and Night Safari on Nov 26. Though she may not see her favourite pokemon, Jigglypuff there, Natalie, one of the youngest to take part, is still excited about going.
Her father, Mr Darren Wee, 40, director and head of project and development services at property consultancy JLL, said: “I think among all these (walking or running) events, a lot of them are corporate or competitive or have some obstacles.
