WATCH: Pokemon Ad | Super Bowl 50 Commercial

Pokemon 20 Super Bowl Commercial

A surprise entry for Super Bowl commercials is #Pokemon20, which debuted on YouTube on Monday, January 25th.

The ad, which looks like it was revealed in its entirety, celebrates 20 years of Pokemon–although there must be some other reason the franchise is pulling out the big guns. It has been estimated that the 60-second spot cost Nintendo upwards of $10 million.¬†Is there possibly¬†another announcement related to the commercial? Pokemon Go?

We’ll have to wait and see.

Did anyone else notice that at 0:36 the numbers match up to 1996, the same year the game was released? Nope, probably not.
