Now you are free to feel old.

Important information for everyone who played the first generation of Pokemons: today 18 years have passed since the Japanese release of Pokemon Red and Pokemon Green.

Pokémon, originally called Capsule Monsters and Pocket Monsters, is one of the world’s most beloved and far-reaching franchises.
With undeniable staying (and playing) power since its creation 18 years ago, it has since become the second-most successful and lucrative video game-based media franchise in the world, behind only Nintendo's own Mario empire.

On this occassion I've found something special for you. Heve you ever wondered who stands behind the original Pikachu voice?

And now let's all wish them "Happy Birthday and 1000 Pokemons more!"
