Today marks Pokemon's twentieth birthday! This year a few of Nintendo's titles are hitting large landmarks. This year also marks the 30th anniversary for both Super Mario and Legend of Zelda (which we just celebrated not long ago)! But today Pokemon finally hits its 20th anniversary and many of us players are celebrating with our favorite memories, favorite Pokemon, and sharing our anticipation for the newly announced Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon!
With Sun and Moon on their way, it appears we're in for yet another generation of fun! Towards the end of the video they showed the making of a new bird Pokemon which many were eager to draw up when they caught the few (very brief) glimpses of it. New Pokemon traditionally mark the entrance of a brand new generation, so if that bird is a legitimate Pokemon, I think we're all in for a brand new region and adventure. Though the games were announced, no details were given about the games other than a projection of when they will be released. Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon are due out by the Holiday Season this year. Knowing that E3 is due in June, I think it's possible we'll see more about the new versions then. What do you think about these new versions now that they're confirmed? Are you excited?
