Today Is Officially Pokémon Day And These Are All The Adorable Events Happening To Celebrate!
You can catch a party Pikachu on Pokemon GO, watch a Pokemon movie marathon and more!
Do you know what today is? (Well, it’s my parents’ wedding anniversary, but that’s not really the point I’m trying to make, I promise). February 27, 1996, marks the release of the *first ever* Pokémon game! To celebrate this, those fine folks at Pokémon have some sweet treats up their sleeve!
If any of you have snagged Pikachu in the last 24 hours, you may have noticed he’s all dolled up with a cute party hat to mark the celebrations. This Pikachu will never lose this party keepsake, so make sure you keep looking for him in the wild between now and March 6.
Pokémon TV will be running a limited-time movie marathon which includes Pokémon: The First Movie, Pokémon 4Ever, and Pokémon - Zoroark: Master of Illusions. So if it’s been some time since you last caught up with Ash’s adventures, grab yourself some popcorn and hop on over to Pokemon.co.uk. You’ll also be able to catch Pokémon the Movie: Volcanion and the Mechanical Marvel on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Video. Hurry, though - you’ll only be able to catch the newest Pokémon movie today!
If you play the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online, logging into today will snag you an “extra-special Daily Bonus” , and Pokémon Shuffle will be offering some in-game specials, too.
And finally, the official Pokémon Twitch channel will be showcasing an array of Pokétastic broadcasts, from memorable Pokémon TCG matches, video games, and highlights from the Pokkén Tournament.
It was recently announced 80 - 80!!! - new Pokémon are coming to the hit mobile game, as well as a selection of special pink Pokémon available over Valentine’s Day. And don’t forget to check out this secret Pokémon GO trick that guarantees Eevee's evolutions...
