The Pokémon Company International has revealed a new TV commercial that will air during Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, February 7th.
The ad, shot in Rio de Janeiro, celebrates the millions of Pokémon fans around the world and encourages them to enjoy the Pokémon references hidden in the ad.
“For 20 years, the Pokémon world has inspired fans to train hard and have fun,” said J.C. Smith, senior director of consumer marketing at The Pokémon Company International.
“This ad is reflective of that passion, and I can’t think of a bigger stage to share this story than the Super Bowl.”
The ad is part of a yearlong campaign celebrating 20 years of Pokémon. A 30-second version of the ad will be aired at the beginning of the third quarter of Super Bowl 50 while an extended version can be viewed below:
