Pokemon Red and Blue launched for the Game Boy in Japan in 1996, which means the franchise’s 25th anniversary is almost upon us, and it seems The Pokemon Company is preparing to celebrate the occasion with all the panache and flash you’d expect. In an update on the Pokemon website, they teased “very special” anniversary celebrations for 2021, though didn’t give too many details on what to expect just yet.

“The Pokémon Company International invites fans around the world to stay tuned for more information about the very special upcoming celebration of Pokémon’s 25th anniversary in 2021,” reads the update.

Remakes of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl have been in heavy demand for a long time, especially with the first three Pokemon generations having received the full remake treatment over the years. Fans will be hoping that Gen 4 remakes will be announced sooner rather than later.

With Pokemon Sword and Shield having wrapped up their post-launch support, the time seems right for a new mainline entry. The series’ 20th anniversary in 2016 was marked by the launch of Pokemon Sun and Moon, after all.

There are a few other Pokemon games currently in development as well. That includes the free-to-play mobile MOBA game Pokemon Unitea new Pokemon Snap title that doesn’t yet have a release date, and Detective Pikachu game for the Switch. Meanwhile, developers Game Freak have also been expanding to “create a new Pokemon series”.
