In yet another reminder of how time passes, Pokémon is about to celebrate its silver anniversary. Yup, as of 2021, Pokémon will have been around for 25 whole years and the company has a new logo to celebrate – featuring everyone's favourite species, Pikachu. 

Unveiled for the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, the new logo (see it below) riffs on the Pikachu character. It's the outline of Pikachu's face, with its signature red cheeks embellished with a 2 and a 5 (for 25, in case you were unsure). It needed to be iconic for such a milestone, but do you think it rivals the best logos of all time? We're not sure.
