Game Freak definitely wants to make this anniversary a blast, as we are getting several events including a concert from American rapper Post Malone which will be airing earlier in the day. You can learn more about the official events relating to Pokemon’s 25th anniversary here.

The Pokemon series first started with Pokemon Red and Green versions which released on February 27th, 1996. Since then, the Pokemon series has become a worldwide phenomenon. Outside of games, the Pokemon series spans trading cards, an anime, multiple movies, toy brands, and much more. Even today, the games are still super popular as Pokemon Sword/Shield are currently the fifth best-selling Switch games as of this writing (as well as the best-selling mainline entry titles since Gold/Silver).
Although there is no confirmation that a new Pokemon game will be announced during the presentation, it certainly would not be the first time a new title was revealed on Pokemon day. Pokemon Sun/Moon were revealed on Pokemon day 2016 which was also the 20th anniversary of the series, while Sword/Shield were also revealed on Pokemon day 2019. Whether we get a new game or not, there is definitely a lot to look forward to tomorrow.
