Pokemon Day is on February 27th, and it celebrates the original release of Pocket Monsters Red and Green in Japan, way back in 1996. Pokemon would come to the rest of the world 2-3 years later.

Various Pokemon-Related Celebrations Are Held

During Pokemon Day, many special events and announcements are to be expected. In 2019, for example, Pokemon Sword and Shield were officially announced. We can perhaps hope for a similar new game announcement this year too!
