Happy 20th Anniversary Pokémon!
Pokémon is a wonderful world where trainers get to capture, evolve, train, collect and play with their favorite Pokémon. Unlike Tamagotchi’s, which required a lot more attention, Pokémon games can be picked up and played whenever you see fit. Whether it’s in a video game or with trading cards, the franchise guarantees good times with friends, attachment to some creatures and of course, a whole lot of fun!
Over the next few days, in celebration of Pokémon’s 20th anniversary, the IMGMR team will provide you with tons of Pokémon-related content. From Trading Card Game builds all the way to explaining certain mechanics from the video games, we plan to share with you as much Pokémon knowledge as possible.
