If the Nintendo bug hadn’t already been firmly established in my girls thanks to genetics, the trip my oldest and I took to Nintendo of America outside of Seattle last November certainly brought it to the forefront. There, we met with the experts (including President and COO Reggie Fils-Aimé) to get an inside look on all the latest games for the 3DS, and what’s coming soon (looking at you, Nintendo Switch). Now, despite the fact that it’s one of Nintendo’s biggest hits (and one I dealt with on the retail side circa ’96-2000), Pokémon is still very foreign to me – as I expect it is for many parents. That’s exactly why my friends at Nintendo are having a special YouTube Live session: Parents’ Guide to Pokémon.
“Do you hear your kids talking about catching, battling, and trading with their siblings and friends? Ever wonder what they are talking about and wish you could join in? Now’s your chance!
Join us for this special 101 tutorial geared specifically towards parents that will provide an overview of Pokémon and a look at the two newest games – Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon – from the experts themselves.”
Originally intended for writers and bloggers, I’ve been told that it’s cool to share this invitation publicly, so here you go! The YouTube Live session is on Thursday, Feb. 2 at 2 pm ET. To RSVP, sign up here: bit.ly/2kkP4fS
If you can’t make the live session, you can always check out Nintendo’s online Parents’ Guide to Pokémon at any time.
