Grab offers discounted rides to Pokémon Trainers in Klang Valley, Penang and Johor Bahru

Following the hype of the much anticipated game in Malaysia, Grab Malaysia is now offering a special promotion exclusively for Pokémon Go Trainers in Klang Valley, Penang and Johor Bahru.

Beginning from August 9 to August 15, Grab is offering an exclusive RM5 off for 2 rides TO or FROM any PokeArea when passengers pay via cash or debit/credit card for their GrabCar (economy) ride.

To book a ride, passengers only need to:

  • Step 1: Download “Grab” via Google Play Store or Apple App Store
  • Step 2: Key in the pick-up point
  • Step 3: Type in “POKEAREA” as the drop-off point to see a list of Grab’s selected “PokeAreas” (Locations recommended for high Pokémon hunt activity)
  • Step 4: Key in promo code GRABPOKEMON
  • Step 5: Go GRAB em’ all safely and comfortably!                                                                                    

The GRABPOKEMON promotion is the continuation of the successful PokeMobiles, a joint partnership between Grab Malaysia and Hotlink which offered free rides to Pokémon Trainers for two days (Aug 7-8, 2016) in Klang Valley.

“Our cars have been on the road for two days and our drivers had so much fun transporting many excited passengers and also attracted members of the public who just wanted a photo of the car. Hence, we wanted to offer something extra to Pokémon fans outside Klang Valley as well!” said Jaygan Fu, Country Head of Grab Malaysia.

Fu added that the GRABPOKEMON promotion which is applicable to all GrabCar (Economy) rides nationwide is part of the brand’s on-going efforts to surprise and delight their customers. “We realise there are many Pokémon fans out there and we wanted to join in the fun and offer safe, comfortable, convenient and affordable rides to Pokémon Trainers to catch and train their Pokémons,” said Fu.

He added that the four limited edition PokeMobiles has certainly made hunting Pokémons these last two days so much safer and faster! “We wanted to help Pokémon Trainers who were hunting for Pokémons travel safely from one PokeStop to another. Lucky players who booked the car, also upped their ante as each car was equipped with a special Grab goodie bag, water and a car handphone charger for uninterrupted gaming pleasure,” added Fu.
