Nintendo celebrates Pokémon's 20th anniversary

Nintendo announced its next Nintendo Direct presentation will stream this Friday, Feb. 26 at 7 a.m. PT. This week's Direct will specifically discuss the Pokémon franchise, just ahead of its 20th anniversary on Feb. 27, although the company didn't elaborate further on what kinds of announcements to expect.
