In celebration of the 20 year anniversary of Pokemon, Nintendo released new information about their new games: Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. In addition, any player who owns Pokemon X, Y, Omega Ruby, and/or Alpha Sapphire can go into their Mystery Gift menu and receive a level 100 Celebi to commemorate the event.
For players who enjoy the Trading Card Game, a new “Mythical Pokemon Collection–Celebi” is available now and a “Red and Blue Collection–Charizard-EX” will be available March 16th as well. Both collections will be a great addition to the collectible and competitive scenes. Though the Celebi card doesn’t seem like it will be promising in battle, the Charizard-EX will pack a lot of punch with its high damage.
Nintendo went all out with the 20th anniversary celebration as they released the “New” Nintendo 3DS preloaded with Pokemon Red and Blue. With the 3DS, they also included 2 cover plates (Charizard or Blastoise) that will definitely bring out the little child in anyone and evoke nostalgia for the original Pokemon games.
Some other awesome bonuses to check out are:
- The digitally remastered versions of “Pokemon 3: The Movie” and “Pokemon 4Ever” available on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon. Be ready to break out the tissue box for Pokemon 3!
- A figure set called “Pokemon Trainer Red: Champion Ver.” which comes with Charizard, Blastoise, Venusaur, and Pokemon Trainer Red is available at the Pokemon Center.
