Celebrating 23 years of Pokémon on Pokémon Day

Pokémon Day is an official celebration of the franchise and takes place on the anniversary of its original release. Pokémon Red and Green were first released in Japan on February 27, 1996.

It’s February 27, 2019, in most parts of the world, which means the Pokémon franchise has officially turned 23 years old! The very first Pokémon games – Pokémon Red and Green – were released on February 27, 1996. Pokémon Red was the first Pokémon game I ever played back in the day on the original Game Boy, and my Pokémon adventures have continued ever since. To the millions of Pokémon fans out there, happy Pokémon Day! The Pokémon Company is celebrating this special day by responding to fans and sharing a plethora of commemorative posts on social media:
