The “Pokémon” games have been around in February 2021 for 25 years. The developers publish a nostalgic teaser and call for celebration.
The “Pokémon” franchise is the most popular and most successful Franchise at all. Even more than “Star Wars”, “Marvel” and “Mickey Mouse”. No wonder, because not only the video games are among the best-selling Nintendo games, merchandise such as plush figures and TV series still inspire young and old today.
For its 25th birthday, the “Pokémon Company” now has big plans. In a new teaser trailer, the past highlights of recent years are shown in a nostalgic journey. Pokéballs roll through hand-built constructs that are inspired by different “Pokémon” generations.
Katy Perry is a “Pokémon” fan
According to the developers, we can look forward to “special surprises” this year. Starting in March, new events, promotions and other announcements will be presented regularly throughout the year as part of the celebration. One can follow this here. It is still unclear whether this refers to new games. However, it can be assumed that something new will certainly be shown there for the 25th anniversary.
As part of this big party, “Pokémon” works with “the greatest stars of the music industry”. The first one announced was a collaboration with pop singer Katy Perry. She will support the event musically. During the year, more details and stars will gradually become known.
Perry had already been spotted with her husband and son in the “Pokémon” café in Japan in the past and, according to the announcement, comes out as a big fan:
“Pokémon has always been a constant in my life, from the video games on the Game Boy to the trading cards. It’s an honor to be part of the celebration of this franchise that I’ve enjoyed so much over the past 25 years.”
