The Pokémon 20th Anniversary celebrations have made their way to GameCenter CX, with the Kachō firing up the 3DS Virtual Console release of Pokémon Green Version. Shinya Arino’s patented enthusiasm and humor shine through as he makes his way from Pallet Town at the start of his journey in this abridged, albeit untranslated, video of his playthrough.

As a fun side feature to his playthrough, an @arikachopokemon Twitter account was started up where all his captured Pokémon will be uploaded. Each tweet will feature a screenshot, the Pokémon’s capture date, and their nickname. The progress can also be followed by the large board behind Arino-san as he plays, where every one of the original 151 Pokémon is featured and marked as they’re caught.

As this is only volume one and there are still plenty of Pokémon to catch, be on the lookout for the next installment!

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.
