Can you believe it? Today is Pokémon’s birthday. On February 27, 1996, Pokémon Red and Green were released in Japan. The world has never been the same.

The series has spawned incredibly successful anime, toys, merch, clothes and card games.

Honestly, it’s hard to imagine a time before Pokémon. I can’t. I just tried. The characters and games have become ubiquitous around the world. They’re not only key parts of people’s childhoods but also truly enjoyable parts of their adulthood.
