Beginning 25 April, customers who successfully complete their SIM swap will be automatically eligible to participate in the RM1 million giveaway campaign.

There will be three rounds throughout the campaign. Customers will be eligible to participate in all three rounds, as long as they haven’t won. So, the earlier customers participate, the more opportunity they have to win.

To participate in the campaign, Maxis / Hotlink customers just need to:

  • Bring their active 3G SIM card to any Maxis Centre/participating Hotlink dealer to perform the SIM swap

Catch ‘Em All Faster With The PokeMobile!

Update @ 2016-08-07 : Pokémon GO was officially launched in Malaysia yesterday, so the PokeMobiles will be roaming the streets of the Klang Valley, ferrying Pokémon GO players to nearby PokeStops. Go book one right now!

 

Catch ‘Em All Faster With The PokeMobile!

Malaysians have heard that the Pokémon GO launch is imminent. Everyone’s raring to go out and catch ’em all! In their eagerness, some will probably get hurt… especially if they are thinking of driving out to hunt for Pokémons.

To help Malaysians hunt Pokémons safely, Grab and Hotlink just launched the limited-edition PokeMobile! Let’s see what the fuss is all about!

 

Grab & Hotlink Launches The PokeMobile

In this video, Maybel Chan (Maxis’ Head of Content & Engagement), and Jaygan Fu (Grab Malaysia’s Country Manager), officially launch the PokeMobile promotion.

Followed by a Q&A session…

 [adrotate banner=”5″]

 

The PokeMobile Revealed!

These are special Grab cars that have been decked out in Pokémon livery. Each PokeMobile also comes with refreshments, Grab goodie bags, Hotlink PokeChargers and even a PokeMonitor, with Hotlink 4G connectivity.

A total of four PokeMobiles will ply the Klang Valley, shuttling Pokémon GO players to nearby PokeStops, over the first two days. Best of all – IT’S ALL FREE!

To book a PokeMobile for a free ride to the nearest PokeStop, Pokémon GO players have to do is :
  • Install / upgrade the Grab app (available for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store)
  • Select the PokeMobile button in the Grab app, and wait for your pickup!

If that’s not enough, PokeMobile riders who are also Hotlink customers will receive US$100 worth of PokeCoins via Hotlink Cash Online. This is equivalent to 14,500 PokeCoins! Of course, you can also use those PokeCoins to purchase 145 Pokémon lures, 145 Pokéballs or 96 egg incubators.

In addition, Hotlink customers will get 10% off their PokeCoins purchased through Hotlink Cash Online. They will also get 10% off in-app purchases on other games and apps like Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, Smule, Loong Craft, Crisis Action, Candy Crush Saga, etc. on Google Play Store.

Is Pokémon GO Launching In Malaysia Tomorrow?

Everyone is crazy about Pokémon GO, including Malaysians who have been waiting impatiently for it to be released in Malaysia. They have been disappointed time and time again by rumours that Pokémon GO is going to be launched. Will they be disappointed again?

 

Grab ‘Em All Faster with Hotlink

This morning, we received a special invitation from Maxis. Oddly enough, it’s for tomorrow morning! Such a short notice is often a sign that something special is coming up. A short notice is often used to prevent leaks – the fewer people know about it, the less likely the information will be leaked.

The invitation was enticingly titled “Grab ‘Em All Faster with Hotlink“, with this accompanying graphic :

There is no doubt that this Maxis event is about Pokémon GO. This has led many to speculate that this is a sign that Pokémon GO is launching in Malaysia tomorrow. Why else would Maxis resort to emailing the media about this event on a Sunday morning?

Find out all about the PokeMobile promotion that Grab and Hotlink announced today!

 

Pokémon GO Update

Speculation of an impending launch was also based on the major Pokémon GO update that was released just yesterday. That update came with the following changes / improvements :

  • players can now re-customise their character
  • Pokémon move sets have been rebalanced
  • some spawn points have been changed
  • your favourite Pokémon can be locked to prevent accidental transfers
  • the footstep tracking feature has been removed, eliminating the 3-step bug
  • the scan radius has been reduced

The theory is that Niantic will want to fix the major bugs before launching in new regions. The removal of the footstep tracking feature, in particular, is useful in reducing server load. That would be something Niantic would be eager to fix before launching the game in new countries.

 

Is Pokémon GO Launching In Malaysia Tomorrow?

[adrotate banner=”4″]

Unfortunately, we do NOT think Pokémon GO will be launching in Malaysia tomorrow. After carefully reading the Maxis invitation, we highlight two important key points :

  • The event title – “Grab ‘Em All Faster with Hotlink
  • The event is described as “a special preview

In our humble opinion, Maxis is probably just announcing a future promotion to capitalise on the Pokémon GO craze. Most likely, they will be partnering with Grab to offer free rides for Pokémon GO gamers to Pokestops.

In any case, stay tuned tomorrow morning for our live coverage on the Tech ARP Facebook page.

 

When Is Pokémon GO Launching In Malaysia?

The urgency of this announcement though is odd. It could mean that a Pokémon GO launch is imminent.

MMO Server Status actually lists Malaysia’s Pokémon GO servers as going live in 25 hours, together with Pokémon GO servers in Israel, China, Mexico, Peru, Venezuela and South Korea.

Thanks for the heads-up, Joshua Wong from The Ideal Mobile!

A cached page also revealed that Grab will offer Hotlink users FREE rides to the nearest Pokestops between 10 AM and 7 PM on Tuesday and Wednesday (August 2 and 3). This is definitely a sign that Pokémon GO is probably launching on Tuesday!
