The Splatoon Splatfest events have been a fun regular addition to the outstanding shooter, though the upcoming Pokémon Red and Blue showdown is arguably the best yet. With the Pokémon anniversary around the corner it's perfectly timed and will also likely be extremely close - one Nintendo UK poll on Twitter for choosing sides was split 51/49.

If you want to choose a side you need to do so very soon, as the start times per region are below - it'll be the usual 24 hours for the event.
