Ready to play Pokémon like 1996?

It isn’t a Pokémon Game Boy Color, but New Nintendo 3DS and 2DS are having a special design to celebrate the Pokémon 20th anniversary.

In Japan, Pokémon was released as Pocket Monsters Aka and Midori (Red and Green), in 1996. It was only in 1998 that Pokémon Red and Blue reached the Game Boy outside of Japan.

After receiving feedback and with the Pokémon animated series getting really popular, Pokémon Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition become the next step of the franchise.

This third one featured a pikachu that would follow you around and Pokémon sprites more similar to the drawings we saw in the animated series.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the famous pocket monsters, Nintendo is releasing Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow on the 3DS, for digital purchase only. To follow these great titles re-release, you can buy different bundles with a New Nintendo 3DS or a 2DS:745x200-n-listpage-pokemon-2ds-032148

There are 3 variants of the 2DS bundle: A transparent red, blue or yellow 2DS, with the correspondent Pokémon game pre-installed. It also brings 15 stickers and a theme download code.
