  • Pokémon Championships
  • Pokémon merchandise
  • Pokémon no Uchi Atsumaru?!

Pokémon Day

The very first Pokémon games were released on February 27th in Japan, and so that day eventually came to be known as “Pokémon Day”. The Pokémon Company hasn’t shared any details regarding this year’s celebrations, but the Nintendo NY Store has already announced a “week” filled with Pokémon activities.

From February 27th to March 3rd, Pokémon fans who visit the Nintendo NY Store will be able to take part in the following activities:

  • face painting
  • Trade ‘n’ Play card activity
  • Pikachu and Eevee photo op

But there’s activity in particular that stands out: a Q&A with members of the Nintendo Treehouse. This is quite intriguing, because they have not been directly involved in the localisation of the various Pokémon games (which is handled by The Pokémon Company).

Here’s the planning for the Pokémon Day activities at the Nintendo NY Store:
