Chow Tuck Mun, Head of Yoodo, is ecstatic for the team and their historic achievement. “On behalf of Yoodo, our heartiest congratulations to the entire TeamMYS team! We’re thrilled to be part of the first ever Pokémon UNITE tournament in the country and witness the immense skills displayed by all players in the tournament. This shows what we have always believed in – that there is incredible talent within the Malaysian esports community, and we are proud to provide another esports title for our players to show what they’ve got.
The grand finals saw TeamMYS take on DUNE and battled it out in to emerge as the best out of three games and TeamMYS emerged triumphant with a score of 849 points in Game One and 864 points in Game Two in the last match.
The Pokémon UNITE Malaysia Open tournament is a joint effort through Yoodo’s partnership with The Pokémon Company as an initiative to empower young talent, while providing them with a competitive platform to showcase their command of the game. As a champion of this cause, the effort also doubled up with Pokémon UNITE’s intentions to expand its presence in Malaysia, a country which remains one of the largest and most profitable in the mobile gaming world.
With a 17.4 million strong market, the Malaysian esports segment’s high-potential factor has been the primary focus for Yoodo – Malaysia’s first fully customisable and 100% digital telco – in the recent years. Strategic investments in esports teams, tournaments, and partnerships have allowed Yoodo to stake its claim in the scene as the go-to telco for gamers, whilst uplifting the Malaysian esports ecosystem.
“It’s amazing to see the community continue to flourish,” Tuck Mun continued. “I’m proud to say that Malaysia is home to a very passionate and active esports scene, and our venture into esports is no ordinary one. It’s key for us to evolve the esports community to provide opportunities for every player to shine and find creative ways to bring your favourite mobile gamers closer to you. As an advocate for the grassroots esports community, Yoodo believes in the potential of Malaysians esports players, and this partnership with The Pokémon Company further cements our philosophy. We will continue to encourage and provide a spotlight for these talents for years to come.”
Yoodo has also officially launched their highly anticipated Pokémon UNITE Add-On, made available at a promotional price of RM1 for 20GB until December 31. The new addition joins Yoodo’s library of other gaming Add-On’s available for its users, which allow them to game day and night with a 20GB boost of data whenever needed.
“Our Add-On’s are such a unique aspect of Yoodo’s services”, shared Tuck Mun. “App-specific high-speed data at unbeatable prices is the dream of any dedicated gamer, and they demonstrate our efforts to provide fully customisable plans that give gamers the exact data that they need.
