If you really haven’t been reading the latest news, Pokemon is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Yeah! It’s been 20 years of Pokemon, with the first games launched in Japan on February 27 1996.

As part of the celebrations this year, a new Pokemon game will be launched in late 2016. Called Pokemon: Sun & Pokemon:Moon, the games form the next generation of these well-loved Nintendo games. If you were born in the late 80s or early 90s, you’d probably remember at least seeing of playing one of the earlier generations, such as the original Red, Blue or Yellow.

Pokemon Cafe is coming to Singapore!

If you’re a big fan and haven’t had to chance to visit any of the Pokemon megastores in the US or Japan, this is probably your best chance to get yourself some Pokemon merchandise.

The Pokemon Cafe will be at the Everything With Fries stall on the fourth floor or Bugis Junction from May 27 to Jul 31 and will have 32 dishes on its menu. The mall owners PARCO said that a Pikachu mascot would also be there for photo taking.

But I’m betting there’ll be pretty long queues so be prepared.
