Fans can upload their favorite images with Pokémon gear and use the hashtag #Pokemon20 to get featured on the website, as well as potentially receive surprises.

The company is also celebrating it's 20th anniversary with a dope new Nintendo 3DS (Charizard version is a personal favorite), and could possibly be gifting the new high-tech gear to fans with the best snaps.

The Pokémon Twitter page also tweeted the commercial, which will also air during the Super Bowl on Feb. 7 at 6:30 p.m. EST on CBS. "Get a first look at our #Pokemon20 Super Bowl spot," the franchise wrote to fans, "and tell us how you plan to #TrainOn in 2016!" 

Pokémon has seen major transitions throughout its history as a major entertainment and media corporation, originally producing games for Gameboys. Now, Pokémon features a plethora of new characters in three dimensional worlds original gamers could only dream of. And it looks like 2016 is going to be an even more futuristic world for Pokémon fans.
