From our observation, New World Park and Komtar area do spawn a lot of Electric Pokemon type and it is no surprise that Pikachu will appear there as well. This will be a great chance for those who miss out Pikachu during the start of the game to catch some of them at New World Park and Komtar.

Also we have some great news!!! We were informed that New World Park, Penang is having a Pokemon Gym competition on 20th August 2016 from 11 am to 3 pm and all their 5 Pokéstops will have the lure module installed for 4 hours straight (Those who want to complete their Fire and Electric type Pokemon collections, should really come). This is really a great chance for trainers to get together and hopefully catch some Pikachu and maybe some prizes! Now, will you excuse me as I will take time off to strengthen my Pokemon and GYM to conquer!
