It’s Pokemon Red vs Pokemon Blue in Splatoon’s latest Splatfest

Splatoon players will gather to make an important decision this weekend.

The latest Splatfest asks Splatoon players to vote for either Pokemon Red or Pokemon Blue.

The event kicks off on Friday and runs through Saturday, during which time players can indicate their preference by joining team Red or Blue. It’s not just a numbers game; strong performance in matches can help tip the balance.

It’s a timely promotion for the 3DS eShop re-release of Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow. There’s no option to vote for Pokemon Yellow, alas – or the Japanese-only Pokemon Green, which gave due honour to the very best Pokemon.
