Happy Pokemon Day everyone! Today marks 20 years since the original Japanese release of Pokemon Red and Green (which came to us Europeans as Pokemon Red and Blue in 1999).
There are loads of things going on this year to celebrate the 20th anniversary, today we saw the release of Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow on the Nintendo E-store. I’m SO excited to be able to play through Pokemon Yellow again, it was the first Pokemon game I owned so for me this is going right back to where it all began. I can’t believe I’ve been into Pokemon games for 16 years. To think, my parents didn’t buy me Red or Blue because they thought they were a (pretty expensive) fad and I’d get bored of them. Proved that wrong, didn’t I! :p
Here’s to many more years of Pokemon! ^_^
