Pokemon is one of the most popular franchises ever, and it continues to grow every year. The hype for Pokemon went sky-high when it was announced that Niantic would be launching Pokemon Go, which would allow people to fight and capture Pokemon. It has been a long time since it was released and the game isn’t as interesting as it was before. But, that is obvious and shouldn’t be a matter of concern.
Nintendo has announced two new Pokemon games for Nintendo Switch. To celebrate the release of the new games, the city of Topeka, Kanas is going to be renamed. The city will be renamed to “ToPikachu” today. The mayor of Topeka, Michelle De La Isla made this announcement at city council meeting on Tuesday.
“ToPickachu” City Pays Respect To Pokemon Let’s Go
In the announcement, she revealed that the city would be renamed to “ToPikachu” for the second time in 20 years. Topeka was renamed as “ToPikachu” back in 1998 to celebrate the release of the original Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue games in North America.
Nintendo’s “Pokemon Let’s Go Road Trip” U.S. promotional tour will make stop in Gags Park in Topeka. People who attend the tour will be able to play switch games and meet Pikachu and Eevee. The tour will also stop in Seattle, Dallas, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York.
Both Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! games will be shipped on November 16. The game is exclusive to Nintendo Switch. The games are also available for pre-order on Amazon for $59.99 each. The first generation of Pokémon will be available in both of the games. Mewtwo is also confirmed as a part of the games. Also, Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno will be available as well. The Mega Evolutions of the three Kanto starters have also been confirmed to be a part of the new Pokemon Games.
