The Pokémon Company has announced that February 27th, 2018 will see the return of Pokémon Day. This day is special because it is considered the anniversary of the release of the original Pokémon games in Japan.

So how will Pokémon Trainers be able to celebrate it? Take a look below for some ideas!

I can confirm Snapchat users will be able to find the Bulbasaur filter in their apps right now. You’ll need an Alexa-Enabled or Google Home-Powered speaker to use the Pikachu Talk skill, but that also should be up now in your speaker’s control application.

Pokémon Go players will be happy to know that Niantic is offering special Pikachus wearing party hats from 1PM PST today to 1PM PST Wednesday. You’ll also be able to buy trainer avatar items inspired by Pokémon FireRed and Pokémon LeafGreen with in-game PokeCoins or real-world money. In the past, limited time event gear was given away for free, so I’m a bit puzzled as to why Niantic is charging for this in-game content unless they plan to keep offering it past the event.

You can celebrate however they wish, but make sure to include the hashtag #PokemonDay with any social media posts.

Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon are out now on the Nintendo 3DS platform. Pokémon Go is out now for Android and iOS Smart Devices.

Reboot: The Guardian Code Release Date February 26, 2018

Back when television networks weren’t run by complete idiots, my generation grew up watching cartoon shows that aired every Saturday morning. Because each television station had to compete against each other for our attention, some of the finest shows ever produced aired during the 90s and early 2000s. This included shows like Batman: The Animated Series, Max Steel (the good version), Bump in the Night, Men in Black: The Animated Series, Freakazoid, and of course, Reboot.

Netflix has picked up the Reboot license and they are close to releasing an all-new series. Based on the trailer alone I can’t tell if it’s a sequel or a reboot (ha ha -Ed), but you can take a look at it and decide for yourself. Here’s the official trailer:

My feelings are a bit mixed about this trailer. On the one hand, the concept of cyberspace superheroes is appealing to me, on the other, that concept had nothing to do with the original premise behind Reboot. Reboot was about computer programs living their daily lives, and this new series seems to focus more on the users on our side of the screen. If you’ve never seen an episode of the emotional series you’d like to get a better understanding of it, Shout Factory TV has the first episode of the series watchable for free online.

Netflix says every episode of Reboot: The Guardian Code will be available to watch on their service starting March 30th, 2018.

I’m holding off my final opinion on this series until after I watch it. Perhaps I may give a review of it if the demand is there. I just would like to make one thing clear, these are not the first humans to ever defend cyberspace on television. That honor belongs to guitarist Sam Collins.
