The Pokémon Company anunció el día de ayer los eventos que realizará para celebrar el Día Pokémon 2018. En general, podremos hablar con Pikachu en vivo a través de Amazon Alexa y Google Home; tendremos lentes de Snapchat por tiempo limitado; la última película animada de Pokémon estará disponible por Pokémon TV por primera vez; un Pikachu especial aparecerá en Pokémon GO; entre otras sorpresas.

Aquí te dejamos los detalles (en inglés) para que no te pierdas nada.

Pikachu Talk
Fans can converse “live” with Pikachu as the iconic Pokémon makes its debut on Amazon Alexa and Google Home with Pikachu Talk. Fans can pose a question or request to Pikachu, and the much-loved Electric-type Mouse Pokémon will respond with classic lines like “pika?”, “pika pika!”, and “pikaaaaa.” Already released in Japan, Pikachu Talk is now available for Amazon Alexa-enabled devices in most countries, and for Google Home-enabled devices in the US.

New Snapchat Lenses
Starting today and for a limited time, three new Snapchat Lenses featuring the first partner Pokémon from the Kanto region will start to roll out around the world, beginning with Bulbasaur. Charmander will arrive later, followed by Squirtle.

Pokémon Center
Last year on Pokémon Day, the Pokémon Center launched Pokémon Gallery Figures—an exclusive line of premium display-ready figures. For Pokémon Day 2018, it’s going even bigger by introducing a new, larger-scale line of these collectibles. Charizard is featured as the first-ever Pokémon Gallery Figure DX, with the iconic Fire-type Pokémon unleashing its signature Blast Burn move in a dynamic pose.

This is also the year of Legendary Pokémon, and on Pokémon Day, the Pokémon Center is joining the celebration by debuting the first in a series of special Legendary Pokémon Pins. Starting today, fans can order new Dialga and Palkia pins, which will be followed by a new pair of pins each month through November (while supplies last). For information about these products, which can be shipped to US addresses, visit PokemonCenter.com.

Animation
Beginning today, the latest animated feature-length Pokémon film, Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!, will be available on Pokémon TV for the first time. The hit movie will be available to view on the app, available for iOS and Android, and on Pokemon.com/TV for a week.

Pokémon GO
When exploring their world in search of wild Pokémon, Pokémon GO Trainers can keep an eye out for a special Pikachu wearing a festive striped purple hat. For Pokémon Day 2018, this Pikachu will know the move Present and will give players triple the usual Stardust when caught. Trainers can look for Pikachu wearing a party hat through February 28 at 1 p.m. PST.

Social Media
In addition to the Snapchat festivities, fans are invited to join the conversation online with #PokemonDay. Fans who use this hashtag might have their posts featured on the official Pokémon Day hub at http://www.Pokemon.com/PokemonDay, where more information about the day’s fan-focused festivities can be found.
