Splatfests are one of the great things about Splatoon. These themed events offer a cool way to play the game with lots of other people rather than the basic multiplayer. According the Splatoon tumblr, the next Splatfest will be featuring Pokemon as a way to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Pokemon Red and Pokemon Blue. And, you guessed it, those will be two teams you have to choose from in the event.

Here are the details from the announcement:

“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.”

Nintendo is also polling everyone on Twitter to see which game was the favorite – Red or Blue. You join in on that discussion by following Nintendo of America.
