Happy Pokémon Day everyone!! 22 years ago today (back in 1996) two indie games known as Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green launched in Japan and would change the world for kids, parents, and normal adults around the world!!
Today we celebrate ALL things Pokémon, which includes tons of promotional tie-ins, giveaways, celebrations, and more!! Here is everything you can do on Pokémon Day!!
You can catch a limited-edition Pikachu wearing a striped purple party hat that could be a shiny variation. You can also customize your avatar to look like Red from the original Pokémon games!
Make Your Alexa/Google Home Sound Like Pikachu
If you own a voice-enabled device at home like any Amazon Alexa or Google Home device you can download a new Pikachu Talk app, which will make your device sound and respond like Pikachu!
Works for me in the US. Just tell it "OK Google, talk to Pikachu" pic.twitter.com/TZ1w4cBkRx— John Halooka (@JHalooka) February 26, 2018
