Asked how she felt after battling against an expert Pokemon gamer, MNL48 Jem shared her thoughts about the game and her sentiments for gamers like the Royal Rumble Talents.

“The feeling was different kasi last time po, nag-laban kami against each member of MNL48 but this time ang kalaban namin ay legit gamers that has wider knowledge about Pokemon. Ang nangyari ay natalo kami sa unang

game na user po ng grass type Pokemon, but hindi ko pinagsisihan ‘yung mga nangyari kasi I told myself that it’s time for gamers to shine because this was their field and they’re best at it po.” Jem expressed.


After the four rounds of Pokemon battle, it was no surprise that the expertise in all kinds of game of the Rumble Royale took their spot in the championship as winners against MNL48.

As the battle finally came, MNL48 participated in two battle games; the max raid, a game wherein four trainers have to defeat a dynamax Pokemon in a same battlefield and a Pokemon battle which MNL48 was divided into 4 Pokemon teams – Pokemon team 1; Dana, Jem, Sela and Jaime, Pokemon Team 2; Belle, Yssa, Abby and Amy, Pokemon team 3; Sheki, Dian, Cole and Coleen and Pokemon Team 4; Gabb, Shaina, Aly and Laney – to battle against each other and win the championship with a surprising prize that awaits them.

When asked about which Pokemon she will catch in her adventure in ‘Pokemon sword and shield’ she answered, “I’ll go for Haunter pa din po, kasi si Haunter ay isang ghost type pokemon so if magkakaroon ako ng kalaban na hindi knowledgeable sa battle, magkakaroon po ako ng advantage kasi hindi tumatalab sa kanya ‘yung ibang attacks lalo na normal attacks.”

MNL48 elevates the fun at Japan Fiesta 2019!

11/19/2019
by MNL48 Philippines

After the successful event at Coslandia 2019 last November 1, 2 and 3, the Philippine idol group MNL48 followed it up with another Japanese tourism and cultural celebration as one of the guest performers for the first ever Japan Fiesta 2019 hosted by the Embassy of Japan in Manila last November 9 and 10, 2019 at SMX Convention Center SM Aura.

MNL48 - Gabb, Yssa, Belle, Jamie, Cole, Sela, Sheki and Aly - were set to take the stage of this event to showcase and introduce the lively world of idols in Japan to the Philippines.

To formally start the event, MNL48 Abby alongside with the honorable ambassador of Japan to the Republic of the Philippines, Mr Koji Haneda and the Secretary of the Department of Tourism, Bernadette Romulo-Puyat opened the event by performing a ceremony named ‘Kagami-biraki’.

On the first day of the festival, MNL48 performed their biggest hit ‘Aitakatta – Gustong Makita’ ‘365 Araw ng Eroplanong Papel’ and their newest single ‘High Tension’ while ‘Pagibig Fortune Cookie’ ‘First Rabbit’ and again, ‘High Tension’ were being performed during the second day of the event.

Japan Fiesta 2019 is a two-day festival – organized by the Embassy of Japan together with the Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO), Japan Foundation, Manila; Japan Association, Manila Inc. (JAMI) and Primer Media Inc. – that celebrates and showcases the beauty of Japan – from amazing travels and popular destinations, to authentic Japanese food and to remarkable and one-of-a-kind culture of Japan – that aims to boost the tourism and strengthen the relationship of Japan and the Philippines as well as enriching the cultural appreciation of Filipinos towards Japan culture.

Joining MNL48 in the roster of guests and performers are the Japanese artists like Japanese comedy trio, HPN3; Yoyo master, BLACK; and the incredible Japanese drums club, WAKODAIKO together with the local artists, such as the multi-talented superstar, Sarah Geronimo; astounding host and TV personality, Robi Domingo; Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) stars, Fumiya and Yamyam.

MNL48 Jamie found the event a good platform to expand their purpose and to connect deeper to their fans as she expressed “Japan Fiesta is a convention housing everything about Japan; food, culture, transportation, tourism, and the like. The attendees of the convention must be people who are interested in Japan and Japanese culture. Being an official international sister group of Japan’s highest selling girl group AKB48, Japan Fiesta was the perfect avenue for us, MNL48, to promote our music with it being a translation of famous AKB48 tracks with a Filipino flavor added.”

She also expressed how grateful they were seeing new faces who support and idolize them, “isang malaking karangalan ang maging idolo ng kabataan. Ito rin ay nagsisilbing paalala sa akin na dapat sa lahat ng aking maging aksiyon ay dapat nakakainspire ito sa mga tumitingala sa aming mga idols. Nakakataba ng puso na makita ang mga kabataang katulad ko na humahanga sa aming mga idol dahil noon isa rin ako sa mga nangangarap at tumitingala sa mga idol.”.

Indeed, MNL48 iwas one of the perfect guests of Japan Fiesta as they are the international sister group of Japan idol group AKB48 and have been performed internationally, including Japan, for numerous occasions that made them a big help tightening the relationship between the two countries because of connecting to their Filipinos and Japanese fans through music.

Japan Fiesta 2019 was just one of their jam-packed events this November as they still have shows to conquer like their upcoming mall shows at Robinsons Pangasinan on November 15 and Starmall Alabang on November 23, as well as being a special guest at the launching of Pokemon Sword and Shield at Robinson Magnolia on November 17, and with the November Seitansai on November 16 at Movie Stars Café.

MNL48 brightens the night during first ever ‘High Tension’ Mall Tour for Robinsons Novaliches Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration

11/11/2019
by MNL48 Philippines

Despite the heavy rainfall, fans and mall-goers alike came pouring in as MNL48 brought their latest fifth single release “High Tension” to Robinsons Novaliches last November 9, 2019 to signal the start of another era for the all-girl Filipino idol group.

MNL48 Dian, Yzabel, Rans, Alice and Faith kept it lively as they front-lined the Robinsons Novaliches Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration, performing for the first time ever their fifth single coupling song “Green Flash” and fifth single “High Tension” which the crowd cheered and danced to even in the midst of a downpour.


Following its debut last November 1, MNL48 also teased fans with upcoming surprises and events that will take place during the whole span of fifth single era, including new uniforms, physical album, music video and Handshake Events.


As there is only more than a month left before the Christmas holiday, MNL48 also led the Christmas Tree Lighting proper and serenaded everyone in the venue with a Christmas carol “Pasko Sinta Ko”, followed by a grand fireworks display that lit up the whole place and brought smiles to people’s faces.


Asked about how she felt to perform “High Tension” for their first fifth single mall show, MNL48 Rans is thankful for all the support they receive, “Masaya po na na-perform namin ang ‘High Tension’ sa mall show. Nakakaengganyo lalo na kasi ‘yung crowd sumasabay sa sobrang lively nung kanta kaya nakakaattract din kami ng mga non-fans. Sana po patuloy niyong suportahan ang MNL48 lalo na ngayong fifth single naming ‘High Tension’.”


MNL48 Captain Alice is also delighted with their first performance of ‘High Tension’, “Masaya kasi this is also our first mall show sa Robinsons Novaliches and quite excited and nervous kasi lima lang kami pero I’m glad kasi alam kong nagawa namin best namin na mapasaya ang mga tao. Masaya rin kami kasi kahit umulan man, tuloy pa rin ang show!”


“The best ang MNLoves, umulan o umaraw kasama pa rin namin sila and sila ‘yung isa sa mga dahilan kung bakit lagi kaming may energy kapagnagpe-perform. Thank you sa love and support! Patuloy niyo po kaming suportahan dahil para sa’tin po ‘tong lahat! We love you and see you sa next mall show!” MNL48 Alice added.

Meanwhile, MNL48 Gabb, Alice, Dian, Faith, Sela, Belle, Cole and Jamie jumped on the Wish 107.5 Bus last November 7, 2019 at SM Sucat where they sang “Green Flash” and shared their experiences and preparations prior to its release.
