To celebrate Pokémon’s 20th anniversary, a Pokémon Day is going to be held at the Nintendo NY at Rockefeller Center on February 27. This date marks the day that the Pokémon games first launched in Japan.
All Pokémon fans are invited to visit the Nintendo NY store for Pokémon Day where there is promise of fun activities for all attendees, however if you can’t make it to New York or you don’t live locally, other stores will be participating in different ways. Toys “R” Us will be giving away special foil cards featuring Pikachu and Magikarp from the Pokémon TCG Generations expansion, along with a Pokémon activity book and a poster of the original 151 Pokémon, and Gamestop will be offering a Mythical Pokemon poster with the purchase of any Pokémon product.
The details of how Pokémon Day will be celebrated in Europe are yet to be announced, but we will keep you posted with any updates.
