That’s not all, plenty of companies, corporations, restaurants and shop brands are also taking advantage of this frenzy by offering special promotions to Pokémon Go trainers!

For example, Sunway Pyramid and Pavilion KL have activated hundreds of Lure Modules at several Pokéstops in their malls, which also offer special promotions.

If you don’t know, Lure Modules is a feature which can be placed at a Pokéstop which will then attract tons of Pokémon to the spot.

Here are the restaurants, cafes and brands that have also decided to join in the craze by offering Pokémon Go-related promotions.
