On February 27, 2020, a new Mythical Pokemon will be officially announced as a special event for Pokemon Day. Read on to hear about the announcement and what kind of Pokemon might be revealed.

What is Pokemon Day?


Pokemon Day is the day to commemorate the original Japanese release of Pokemon Red and Green on February 27, 1996, which are the very first video games of the Pokemon series. Pokemon Day is celebrated annually every February 27 by fans all over the world, and this year, it was declared an official holiday by the Japanese Anniversary Association.

“Congratulations on the official acceptance of February 27, 1996 as an anniversary by the National Anniversary Association. Look forward to Pokemon Day this year... some new information is coming!”

A New Mythical Pokemon


On the link given in the tweet above, it was indicated that a new Mythical Pokemon would be available in Pokemon Sword and Shield, which would be announced on Pokemon Day.

It's not known yet what conditions are needed to receive this Pokemon, but as only Pokemon Sword and Shield is specified, it can be assumed that a purchase of the new Expansion Pass DLC won't be necessary to obtain the new Pokemon.
