Happy Pokemon Day!
Pokemon is celebrating 25 years of games and fun! On February 27th, 1996, the first Pokemon games were released in Japan with fans across the world excited. This adorable game, created by someone fascinated by collecting bugs, grew into a household name. Starting with their Pokemon Red and Blue, all the way to the new Sword and Shield, you’ll find a fan of each style.
In honor of Pokemon’s 25th anniversary, they have announced Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl to be released on the Nintendo Switch! Revisit the Sinnoh Region and defeat the Pokemon League all over again in new reimagined adventures that stay true to the originals. These two remastered games will be launching in late 2021! So keep an eye out for a blast from the past.
More details about New Pokemon Snap announced in the video presentation. It will have special in-game events for Pokemon’s 25th Anniversary! Here you are a budding photographer in the Lental Region. You’ll work in hand with Professor Mirror, the region expert. Remember your photo skills and get those epic snaps! Once finished with your mission, you’ll be able to edit and touch up all your photos before sharing them with friends and others to compete worldwide!
Up next is Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Wait, is that Breath Of the Wi– Ohhh I see what they did there. Encounter pokemon in this new game to become part of the Pokedex Adventure! Trainers visit the Sinnoh Region as it existed in the past. Long before Diamond and Pearl was even an idea. Visit Mount Cornet the heart of Sinnoh and experience Pokemon in a whole new experience.
