You Have Just One Day To Catch This Super Rare Pokémon In Pokémon Go
It's a special Pokemon anniversary and to celebrate, this Pokemon is available to catch! Here are all the details.
The Pokémon news just keeps on coming this week!
In celebration of Pokémon Day 2018 - February 27 - The Pokémon Company has revealed a long list of fun festivities to help you all commemorate this special occasion, including three new Snapchat filters, a special edition Pikachu to catch, and a free stream of Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You all week.
"To help fans celebrate, Pokémon Trainers can now access the Pikachu Talk skill for Amazon Alexa. Fans can also join Pokémon Day celebrations on social media with all-new Snapchat Lenses featuring the original first partner Pokémon—Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle—while also enjoying new opportunities to watch iconic Pokémon animation, and the chance to catch a special Pikachu in Pokémon Go," says Pokémon.
What's special about February 27? Well, on February 27, 1996, the first Pokémon video games, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green, launched in Japan, kicking off our love affair with all things Pokémon!
Here's how you can pick up some goodies and/or participate in the celebrations:
Pikachu Talk Skill: Fans can converse “live” with Pikachu as the iconic Pokémon makes its debut on Amazon Alexa with the Pikachu Talk skill. Fans can pose a question or request to Pikachu, and the much-loved Electric-type Mouse Pokémon will respond with classic lines like “pika?”, “pika pika!”, and “pikaaaaa.” Already released in Japan, Pikachu Talk is now available for Amazon Alexa-enabled devices in most countries.
New Snapchat Lenses: Starting today and for a limited time, three new Snapchat Lenses featuring the first partner Pokémon from the Kanto region will start to roll out around the world, beginning with Bulbasaur. Charmander will arrive later, followed by Squirtle.
Beginning today, the latest animated feature-length Pokémon film, Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!, will be available on Pokémon TV for the first time. The hit movie will be available to view on the app, available for iOS and Android, and on Pokémon.com for a week.
