Pokémon 20th anniversary: Game creators announce new versions of the game
Happy Birthday to you, Pikachu! The much loved Pokémon entertainment franchise turns 20-years-old this weekend.
In honor of this milestone, the Pokémon Company released a new video celebrating two decades of “Pocket Monsters.”
The game originally debuted in Japan on the Game Boy handheld video game system. Since then, Pokémon has grown into a multi-billion-dollar empire of video games, trading card games, movies, toys and a T-V series.
The anniversary video also announces two new video games: Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, coming this fall.
Also ahead is the Pokémon Go app for mobile phones, expected later this year.
