A Pokemon themed Splatfest will be taking place in Splatoon next week. The news comes straight from the official Splatoon Tumblr. The Splatfest will happen simultaneously around the world, however the rules of previous Splatfests will apply to your region only. You will be matched only with players in your region and the results will be tallied in each region.
There will also be a slight difference in the teams. In North America, the teams will be “Red Vs. Blue”. This is because Pokemon Red and Blue were the versions of the first Pokemon generation that was released in Europe and North America. In Japan, it was Pokemon Red and Green. It was not confirmed if Europe will get the same treatment.
The Splatfest begins on February 20th and ends on the 21st. If you live on the west coast of the United States, the dates are in the evenings of the 19th and 20th, respectively.
BREAKING NEWS! We’ve just learned that the next Splatfest is being presented by none other than… drumroll, please… Pokémon!
Head to the Inkopolis Plaza and select which game is your favorite: Pokémon Red or Pokémon Blue!
This Splatfest will begin on February 19 at 10:00 PM PT and will run until February 20 at 10:00 PM PT.
This Splatfest will also happen simultaneously around the world. Like any other Splatfest, however, players you get matched with will be from your region, and the results will also be tallied by each region.
By the way, did you know that in Japan the first Pokémon game was released in a “Red Version” and a “Green Version,” but in North America and Europe, the two versions were “Red Version” and “Blue Version.” So for this Splatfest, in North America, it will be “Red vs Blue.”
