Nintendo has today announced that its Pokémon television show is coming to Game Boy Advance Video, joining numerous franchises from the Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, and 4Kids Entertainment that have previously been announced by Majesco. The $19.99 "Video paks" are scheduled for release on June 21 and will each contain two Pokémon episodes. Two Pokémon packs will be released initially. One will contain the episodes "Playing With Fire!" and "Johto Photo Finish," and the other will contain "A Hot Water Bottle" and "For Ho-Oh the Bells Toll!"
"Even by the remarkable standards of product evolution that have characterized the Game Boy franchise, this is a landmark event," said George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. "Pokémon is part of the first step in revolutionizing the nature of portable video entertainment, with eventual reach targeting all demographics."
