The Pokemon Tag

Today is Pokémon Day, an annual celebration commemorating the launch of the first Pokémon games in 1996, and to celebrate all things Pokémon. It happens every year on February 27th and various events are put on around the world to celebrate it.

I first heard of Pokémon Day when my Pokémon Go game set up their latest community day event, where Pokémon from the Kanto region (where the first games were set) will appear more frequently. So here’s hoping I can complete my Kanto Pokédex.

Along with catching Pokémon, I thought I’d acknowledge Pokemon day by answering the Pokémon Tag (how many times am I going to write Pokemon in this post!?), which I first found on The Smurfy Gamers Blog. Click here to read their answers.

    OK, I have heard of Pokemon because Flora was/is a fan but I’m afraid reading your answers was like studying another language! The only Pokemon character I know is Pikachu, who is very cute 🙂 I’m glad you and Aaron enjoyed your trip down memory lane though! x
