The Pokemon Company has teased Pokemon's 25th-anniversary celebrations during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in Manhattan on Thursday. 

The Pokemon franchise made its debut on February 27, 1996 with the release of Pokemon Red and Pokemon Green in Japan.

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade featured a troupe of Pikachu dance to the original theme song of Pokemon in Herald Square and ended with a banner unveiling the logo for the 25th anniversary of Pokemon.
