You might not know this, but we’re in the midst of the 20th anniversary of Pokémon. The Pokémon Company is celebrating with a slew of events and releases, most of which haven’t even been announced yet.
We know that Pokémon Red and Blue are bound for the 3DS eShop, and we also know that Pokémon will have a commercial during the Super Bowl. That commercial has been uploaded, and you can see it at the head of this post.
It’s a cool ad, and I’d contend that it takes a lot of inspiration from what Sony has done in the past with their offerings. It doesn’t really announce anything, though. It just sort of reminds folks that Pokémon is totally a thing.
Why not cap the end with a note that the originals are being re-released on the 3DS? Seems odd that that’s missing, right?
Whatever the case may be, revel in the news that your friends and family will watch a Pokémon commercial during one of the most viewed events in the world. That alone is absolutely bananas.
