What Is Pokémon Day?

The first Pokémon video games, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green, were originally released in Japan on February 27, 1996, launching an entertainment franchise loved by Trainers worldwide.

Since then, February 27 has become known as Pokémon Day, a time to come together and celebrate all things Pokémon!
