The Pokemon Company announced they’re planning various celebrations for the Pokemon 25th anniversary.
The original Pokemon games, Pokemon Red and Pokemon Green, were released back on February 27th, 1996 in Japan – so the 25th anniversary will be the same day, February 27th, 2021.
To hype up the coming anniversary, The Pokemon Company featured a group of Pikachu dancing to the original Pokemon theme song in this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, alongside the unveiling of a huge banner with the above logo for the Pokemon 25th anniversary. This year was also the 20th consecutive year where a huge Pikachu balloon was featured in the parade.
Lastly, The Pokemon Company will be sharing more details for the “very special upcoming celebration” for the Pokemon 25th anniversary, sometime later.
