It’s officially February 27th in Japan, which means Pokémon has reached its 22nd birthday – Happy Pokémon day!

To celebrate Pokémon Day, you can converse with Pikachu using the new Pikachu Talk app ( now available for Amazon Echo and Google Home), snap your friends using new Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle filters, and watch Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You for free through Pokémon TV!

Pokémon GO specifically has announced several #PokemonDay special additions: First, Party Hat Pikachu with the move Present will now be spawning until the end of the month so trainers will once again have a chance to add it to their collection (and reap 3x stardust for every capture). And Red and Green’s costumes are now available to purchase as avatar outfits in the store as well.

How will you be celebrating Pokemon Day?
