It’s a great year for Pokémon fans. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the best-selling gaming franchise, Nintendo announced a slew of new releases and promotions fans can look forward to in 2016:
- Starting in February, you will be able to nab mythical Pokémon every month including Darkrai, Mew, Shaymin and more
- New Nintendo 3DS bundles with Pokémon Blue or Pokémon Red coming February 27
- Pokémon TGC: Generations – A special expansion to the Pokémon trading card game

- Pokémon Trainer Red: Champion with Nendroid figures available exclusively at PokemonCenter.com

If you’re not as much of a gamer, but enjoy the Pokémon anime, then there is good news for as well. Pokémon: The First Movie, Pokémon The Movie 2000, Pokémon 3 The Movie, and possibly as many as all twelve Pokémon films are being digitally remastered and released on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Video. And if you’ve never had a reason to watch the Superbowl, now you do. Nintendo will have a special Pokémon commercial airing during the big game.
Of course, you also have Pokémon Go and Pokkén Tournament to look forward to this year.
