Pokemon 20th Anniversary

Has it really been 20 years since Pokemon debuted? 1996 feels like it was yesterday. I never really got into Pokemon, but which is your favorite title? I am seeing Gold and Silver on a lot of lists.

Pokemon fans have multiple reasons to celebrate this weekend, which marks the 20th anniversary of the Nintendo franchise. The online and in-person festivities begin on Saturday at 10 a.m. EST, when Pokemon's Twitch channel will begin broadcasting discussions, gameplay footage, and interviews. It will switch over to animated content at 6 p.m., featuring movies, TV episodes, and specials for 24 hours straight. In-person events will complement the virtual celebration at Nintendo locations and toy stores around the country.
