20 Years of Pokémon

Recently, Pokémon celebrated its 20th anniversary, and that is why we have decided to dedicate this post to those creatures which have been with most of us along our childhood.

To celebrate it, they have created a webpage where they show fan posts from Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #Pokemon20. But it doesn’t end there, they show us a chronology along its history, from its release in Japan as a videogame in 1996 to 2016, where they show us all the launched content and still to be launched. It was also predictable that, taking advantage of the occasion, they would launch new merchandising and also new versions of the GameBoy classics Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow in the Nintendo eShop. And finally, they are also organising events all over the wold in which every month you’ll be able to get a different legendary Pokémon, this month is the turn of Celebi, so switch on your 3DS and you gotta catch’em all!


Moreover, Nintendo has surprised all the Pokémon followers by announcing the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon versions, which will come to light at the end of 2016. At the moment, not much is known about this new version, the only thing that it is known is that the Pokémon Center and the Poké Mart will count with new designs, this editions will be also compatible with the Pokémon Bank and it will support 9 different languages: Japanese, English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Korean and, for the first time, traditional Chinese and simplified Chinese.
