Pokemon Day will be held at Nintendo New York this Saturday

Pokémon makes 20 years this Saturday February 27 with celebrations at multiple retailers, including the newly renovated Nintendo New York.

UPDATE: New time for the Nintendo NY event is 9AM-5PM on Feb 27th.

Pokémon Blue, Red, and Yellow will be released and these digital copies will be almost exactly as they first appeared. You can purchase these games separately or in a special New Nintendo 3DS Pokemon 20th anniversary bundle that features Charizard and Blastoise cover plates.


Toys ‘R’ Us will give out special foil cards featuring Pikachu and Magikarp from the new Pokémon Trading Card Game: Generations expansion, as well as an activity book and a poster of the original 151 Pokémon. Can you count how many Pokémon there are currently? Magearna, the artifical Pokémon, makes 722. Toys R Us will also have for sale an exclusive Generations-themed binder.


GameStop stores have already been offering a special Mythical Pokémon Mew download code for Pokemon Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire and X and Y. There will be more legendary Pokemon available for download throughout this year. An exclusive Mew plush is on sale, as well as a Mythical Pokemon poster with the purchase of any Pokemon product. These exclusive items are only available while supplies last.

Super Mario Maker has special Pokémon starter costumes of Squirtle, Charmander and Bulbasaur, while the scores are in for Splatoon’s latest Splatfest between Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue!


Looking ahead, some of the rare Pokémon amiibo such as Charizard, Jigglypuff,  Greninja and Lucario will be restocked and returning to shelves at certain retailers. The anticipated fighting game, Pokkén Tournament will be launching on March 18 with an exclusive Shadow Mewtwo amiibo card. It’s exclusively for Wii U at a suggested retail price of $59.99.

The official website Pokémon20 is a compilation of fan’s favorite memories, and has a nifty timeline history feature showcasing two decades of Pokémon.
