Feb. 27th = Pokémon Day!

Quote:
http://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-ne...is-on-the-way/

On February 27, 1996, the first Pokémon video games launched in Japan, kicking off a global Pokémon phenomenon that continues to this day. Exactly 20 years later, Pokémon Day will celebrate the historic milestone with events across the globe!

Look forward to the rerelease of Pokémon Blue, Pokémon Red, and Pokémon Yellow for systems in the Nintendo 3DS family. Rediscover the magic of the original Pokémon games almost exactly as they first appeared. These games will be available on Nintendo eShop. Also look for Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue in a special New Nintendo 3DS Pokémon 20th Anniversary bundle.

Visit participating stores on Pokémon Day for special Pokémon events. Head to Toys“R”Us to receive special foil cards featuring Pikachu and Magikarp from the new Pokémon TCG: Generations expansion, as well as a Pokémon activity book and a poster of the original 151 Pokémon, while supplies last. Toys“R”Us will also have an exclusive Generations-themed binder available for purchase to store your new cards.

As part of the Pokémon 20th celebration, GameStop stores are offering a Mythical Pokémon poster with purchase of any Pokémon product while supplies last. An exclusive Mew plush is also available for purchase.

All Pokémon fans are invited to Nintendo NY located at Rockefeller Center in New York City on February 27 for a Pokémon 20th celebration. We'll have fun activities planned for attendees.

Many more details about Pokémon Day on February 27 are on the way. Keep checking Pokemon.com for more information as we get closer to the big day. And remember to visit Pokemon.com/20 for more Pokémon 20th fun!
Didn't feel this needed ta go under the news section as it could make a good anniversary thread for reminiscing an whatnot! Any poké-plans for the 27th?

I could do a movie marathon @[email protected] but more likely that may make a good time ta get myself replayin' one of the Ranger games at long last!

I don't have many plans on the 27th, although I am replaying Black 2 so I guess I could do that for the day.

I plan to download R/B/Y on my 3DS and play the hell out of them. Here's hoping they don't patch any of the glitches- I want a Missingno. on my team in Red, and a Weezing on my team in Yellow!

Guess I'll play HeartGold for the day on the 27th! Haven't played it in a while.

And I'm gonna watch Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea. Seriously my favorite movie.

tbh I'll probably see if I can beat one of my games in one sitting, barring meal breaks. Probably Y, it's actually genuinely enjoyable.

I'd like to play through Ruby (my first game), but that would mean deleting my original save file which is a no-no fo sho. Actually my roommate and I have been playing Colosseum recently so maybe it's time to finally finish that. Or finish 100%ing the newest PMD game. We'll see.

Welp I went ahead and buy it today ^^; I thought they would sell it only on the 27th but NOPE! I went to EB Games to get the Mew code today and the plush was right there, and it was the last one of the store. So YOINK!

But I'll still make a stop at Toys R Us for the cards on the 27th.

Yeah, I don't think Europe's doing anything for Pokemon day. Or at least, I've seen nothing for it. Local Streetpass group might be organizing something, but that's about it.

My new and improved 27th to do list:
1. Wake up and sing at the top of my lungs all of the Pokemon themes with no pausing
2. Eat PokeBall English muffins (rasberry jam, marshmallow fluff, and chocolate-hazelnut spread) while watching my favorite episodes
3. Wear my Pikachu hoodie-footie all day long
4. Play through HeartGold with no stopping whatsoever (except bathroom breaks and food)
5. My little sister will probably make me "play Pokemon" with her (which just means me crawling around outside pretending to be Pikachu with her pretending to be Ash)
6. At the end of the day, try to fit in all Pokemon movies I can watch without falling asleep
...
Well yes I may seem like a dork but if you go to my house this is what you should expect

Also I am homeschooled so this is all easy for me to do. lol

Oh yeah, so it is. Then it'll probably involve me sorting crap at youth club then coming home and being utterly knackered and so I don't do anything other than maybe emulated FR.

So can anyone find out how much the rereleases will cost? Will they be the generic VC 5-6 USD or something else?

You have got to be kidding. That puts me in a bind-I have $20 in ESHOP card to work with. I definitely want to have Blue, but Yellow is also appealing, but on top of that I need $5 for Bank.

Thinking about just doing a nostalgia run of my first game. Same team, same game, do it for the feels. Who's doing something similar, out of curiosity?

I might, but the day looks hellish for me.

Plus, doing Infernape/Staraptor dream team is not ideal, it only worked last time because I got lost on the second route and ended up with Infernape by the first gym. Also, the Rock Smash/Mach Punch/Ember/Flame Wheel moveset.

I still have this Infernape. And the Platinum Infernape which was the same but actually hit level 100.

I'd try something like that for Sapphire, but the only 'Mons I remember on my first team were Sceptile/Ludicolo/Swellow.

I don't think I'll do another Generation I Nuzlocke, at least not right away. Already got the bulk of the team I'll be using for Red Version planned out- will definitely be using Charizard, Vileplume, Arbok, and Weezing. The only ones that are uncertain are;

1: Missingno. If the glitches remain intact, I'll be using this. If not, then I'll be using Dodrio instead.

2: Seadra. I've narrowed it down to either this or Gyarados. Still undecided.

I still have the Empoleon from my first save of Pearl. That is my badge of honor, its around 9 years old at this point-it could become a Trainer of its own soon! :p

For Blue, I am nuzlocking it but I definitely want to get a Sandshrew. The comic that got me into the hobby had one on the team that was characterized as a mobster kinda guy that went by the name of Connery, and a White 2 locke I did from a while ago unfairly lost its Sandslash to a crit Giga Drain OHKO from a TANGELA. I would want to do yellow to use stuff like Seadra and Arbok and other things I never get around to using.

I really would like to get Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon because I've heard it was super fun and I love the series a lot ;v;

Also! I found this person on youtube that's releasing 20th anniversary videos featuring a new type every day! They have normal, fighting, fairy, poison, psychic, ghost, dark, and bug so far, and I've really enjoyed watching them \o/

Here's the ghost one if you wanna see what they're like~
