Junichi Masuda Shares His Thoughts On Pokemon’s 23rd Anniversary

Today marks the 23rd anniversary of the Pokemon franchise. One of the most influential individuals behind it all, Junichi Masuda, has some words to share.

In a tweet on his personal Twitter account, Junichi Masuda looked back at the history of Pokemon, and thanked everyone for making Pokemon a huge franchise it is today. He also hopes fans will look forward to the future of Pokemon.

On this day 23 years ago, February 27, 1996, Pokemon was born. From there, Pokemon expanded into manga, anime, movies, merchandise, and finally worldwide. Today is a day that happened thanks to the support of so many people. I have nothing but gratitude. I look forward to your never ending support!

Thanks, Brandon.
