The Pokémon celebrations can’t be stopped, as Nintendo and GameStop have declared February 27th Pokémon Day! While the main attraction will be the eShop release of Red, Blue and Yellow Versions, other products will be discounted the whole day through. Most notable are the exclusive Mew figure and the New 3DS XL, and the fact that any Pokémon purchases made the day of will come along with a double-sided poster.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
