#Pokemon20 Super Bowl Commercial First Look

Hello, trainers! A rather lengthy first look was posted a few hours ago across Pokemon’s social media channels. This year marks the 20th anniversary since the launch of Pokemon and its furry yellow mascot, Pikachu. Many are wondering if this pertains to the upcoming location-based mobile game, Pokemon GO. If this is the case, this may be the confirmation that the first generation roster won’t be the only Pokemon available.

In addition, for Pokemon’s 20th anniversary, a number of events and releases will be taking place in 2016:

  • Free legendary Pokemon every month starting in February
  • Nintendo 3DS with classic Pokemon Red/Blue version pre-installed (Comes with Charizard/Blastoise cover plates)
  • Pokken Tournament released on Wii U
  • Pokemon: Generations booster packs for the Pokemon TCG
  • Pokemon: Mythical Pokemon Collection for the Pokemon TCG
  • First three Pokemon movies remastered 
  • Trainer Red: Champion Ver. Nendroid figure
  • A host of other 20th anniversary merchandise

Starting in February, a new Pokemon will be free every month


Anyway, for the trailer, take a look below!
