February 27, 2020 marks the 24th anniversary of Pokemon Red & Green in Japan, where it officially recognizes the date as ‘Pokemon Day.’
The term “officially” gets tossed around as much as a Dreepy in Surprise Trades, but Pokémon Day is as official as it gets with acknowledgment by the Japan Anniversary Association.
A special Max Raid Battle will be available for Pokemon Sword & Shield to celebrate the day. Additionally, there are plans for an in-game event for Pokemon GO.
Lastly, a new Mythical Pokemon will be revealed on Pokémon Day. It is set to appear in the film, Pokemon the Movie: Coco. We’ll get the first look, learn its name, and more on Pokemon Day 2020. We can also expect new announcements for the smartphone game Pokemon Masters and more.
Pokemon Sword & Shield are available for the Nintendo Switch.
