“Pokémon Day” on Thursday, February 27th


To commemorate “Pokémon Day” there will be raid events, in-game events and movie release dates!

February 27th 1996, the day Pokemon was born. What an amazing time for the 90’s who would have thought 24 years later Pokemon is still charging ahead not only in games but also in merchandise, TV and movies.

The Pokemon’ first games ever released ‘Pokemon Red and Pokemon Green’ were released on a Tuesday back on Feb 27th 1996. With appreciation to all the Pokemon fans, the Japan Memorial Day Association have actually approved his date as the official ‘Pokemon Day’.

Let’s see what Pokemon have in store to celebrate this god gifted day.

At this stage only the events have been confirmed, once the Pokemon have been announced, I will update 🙂
