February 27 is Pokémon Day, the day that the Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green games first launched in Japan in 1996. This year, our Pokémon Day celebration kicked off with a special Pokémon Presents hosted by Tsunekazu Ishihara, president of The Pokémon Company, and Takato Utsunomiya, Chief Operating Officer of The Pokémon Company. The presentation gave us our first look at the Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet games, the next Pokémon RPGs that are coming to Nintendo Switch later this year, along with many more updates about other Pokémon titles.
