Nintendo Direct to Celebrate 20 Years of Pokémon This Friday

Quick Chat


Pokémon Red and Blue launched in Japan on February 27, 1996, so the series’ birthday is coming up this Saturday. Nintendo will be celebrating early with a Pokémon Nintendo Direct presentation, which is set to stream on Friday, February 26 at 7:00am PT / 10:00am ET.


You can head to this link to watch the North American stream. You can actually just load the page now and sit there staring at it for a few days until something happens if you feel like it. 


All we know is that Nintendo plans to celebrate 20 years of Pokémon on the stream. Whether or not that will include any new announcements is anyone’s guess, but this year has been pretty Pokémon-packed already so anything could happen.
