Celebrate Pokémon Day on February 27, 2023

To commemorate the original Pokémon releases, fans can “Pokémon Together” by sharing their love of Pokémon.

The first Pokémon video games, Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green, were originally released in Japan on February 27, 1996. Those games, of course, would launch an entertainment franchise loved by Trainers around the globe. Since then, February 27 has become known as Pokémon Day, a time for Trainers to come together and celebrate all things Pokémon!

This year, the theme of Pokémon Day invites fans to “Pokémon Together” throughout 2023. Celebrating this way revisits the initial concept of the franchise: connecting with others. You can watch a special trailer illustrating the concept of the program right here.

To kick off the “Pokémon Together” campaign, Trainers are encouraged to “Celebrate Pokémon Together” this Pokémon Day. Become part of the experience by sharing your Pokémon memories with the hashtag #PokemonTogether for a chance to be included in an interactive mosaic here on Pokémon Day.
