There’s no denying that the Pokémon Go mania has landed in the Philippines, and like many others, Cebuanos are also left with the same question: Where can we find more Pokémons?!
No need to worry, you’re going to catch them all—more than 20 Pokémons are currently lurking around the 30-hectare The Mactan Newtown. Prepare to catch Caterpie, Weedle, Pikachu, Rattata, Voltorb, Electrode, Pidgey, Spearrow, Nidoran, Zubat, Paras, Meowth, Poliwag, Magikarp, Eevee, Exeggcute, and many more!
The Mactan Newtown has one Poké Gym at the Dolphin Fountain, and is near four Poké Stops namely the Mactan Brgy. Hall, Magellan’s Battleship Wood Sculpture, Fr. Jules Chevaller Statue and Sto Nino de Cebu Mactan. What’s more, The Mactan Newtown is very pedestrian-friendly so you don’t have to worry about your safety while you’re busy trying to catch as many Pokémons as you can.
While there, you can even grab a quick bite at The Mactan Alfresco, a hawker-style establishment featuring various culinary dishes. You can also check out the newly-built Lechon Pit, where the famous Lechon Cebu is roasted right before your very eyes, then maybe satisfy your Lechon cravings while at it.
The Mactan Newtown is real estate giant Megaworld’s very own township with a beach. Currently, the Mactan Newtown’s masterplan includes 10 luxury condominium towers, five to ten more office towers by 2021, five business and leisure hotels overlooking the Hilutungan Channel and a bustling cyberpark. Soon, it will be home to the Plaza Magellan, a three-level retail and commercial hub with structure inspired by rich Spanish architecture; and The Newtown School of Excellence, headed by the Lasallian Schools Supervision Office.
