Pokémon's Super Bowl Ad Will Be The Very Best Super Bowl Ad: Watch

The people at Pokémon HQ are going all-out to celebrate their 20th anniversary, and that includes a fancy new commercial at the Super Bowl, a.k.a. the most-watched television event of the year. Watch the cinematic ad above before it airs on Feb. 7 during the big game.

The clip imagines a world where real-life Pokémon trainers are on the same pedestal as athletes and geniuses. We even get to see a snippet of an imagined battle between a trainer and his opponent with prized Pokémon like Charizard, Garados, Magneton and more.

The ad directs viewers to check out Pokemon20.com, which includes information about new Poké-products, a timeline of the last two decades, news, a social feed of other fans sharing their memories and more.

Even 20 years after Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Charmander and the gang were introduced into our lives, it's clear Pokémon aren't leaving us anytime soon. (And that includes an upcoming comeback of the original Pokémon Red, Blue & Yellow.)
