February 27th marks the anniversary of the release of the original Pokémon games in Japan, and for the past few years The Pokémon Company has celebrated this day with all kinds of giveaways and surprises for fans of this long standing franchise. What do you say we share some of the biggest celebration events you can expect!

The Pokémon TV app is a great way to watch older and newer episodes of Pokémon: The Animated Series. It has just been updated to integrate Pokémon Trainer accounts, allowing you to resume a show you were watching on a different device. I’d love it for Samsung to add this to their Smart TV application lineup. You can get the update right now on smart devices although the Apple TV version has not received this update as of the time I’m posting this. If you wanted to rewatch some of your favorite old episodes or catch up on some of the newest ones, give this app a download right now!

Starting on February 23rd, Pokémon Go players will notice special Research Events which when completed will give them the opportunity for an encounter with the Pokémon Clamperl between 11am and 2pm PST. You’re going to want to capture as many of these as you can through the day as you won’t know what they’ll evolve into until you try to evolve them and you won’t be able to find them in the wild. All the details of the event can be found here.

A special Pokémon Play and Trade event will be hosted at Best Buy stores on Feb 23rd and GameStop Stores on Feb 23rd and Feb 24th. The event will be similar to the ones previously hosted by the now defunct Toys R Us stores, in that players will be able to gather and trade Pokémon TCG cards amongst themselves at the event. A special 3-pack TCG booster set will be given to attendees free of charge while supplies last. You might want to call your local store ahead of time to get all the details.

Nintendo NYC at 10 Rockefeller Plaza New York, New York is having a special Pokémon event every day between Feb 27th to March 3rd. They will be hosting a range of different events on site ranging from Play and Trade to Face Painting, a Q&A with he guys at the Nintendo Treehouse, and the chance to talk to Pikachu and Eevee! If you’re in the NYC area, check it out! Nintendo NYC is a must-visit destination for any Nintendo fan visiting the city! You can get a full schedule of the upcoming events here.

Finally there is going to be a huge marathon of Pokémon content on Twitch starting on February 27th! TwitchPresents will be airing selected episodes from Pokémon The Series: Diamond and Pearl, Pokemon The Series: Black and White and Pokémon The Series: XY. A few movies are also going to be streamed but they won’t say which ones just yet. The episodes will continue to air until May 5th!

This isn’t enough for you? Here’s the rundown of all the details! Happy birthday, Pokémon!

Pokémon Go is out now free of charge for Android and Apple Smart Devices. Pokémon TV is also out on Apple and Android Smart Devices, Apple TV and Roku.
