In a very short time, Pokemon Go has taken over the world; from parks and forests to museums and malls, including fX Sudirman shopping mall in Central Jakarta. The mall is currently known as one of the hottest spots to either train monsters at the gym or take over the gym from other teams. As sometimes it can take hours to do these things, surely you will need to maintain your energy level by eating and drinking.
Here are our recommended places to hang out in fX Sudirman while you train your pocket monsters.
