How to Celebrate Pokemon Day 2018 February 26, 2018

Posted by Maniac in Game News.

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.
