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.
10pm Pacific (19/02) / 1am Eastern (20/02) until 10pm Pacific (20/02) / 1am Eastern (21/02)
4am UK / 5am CET (20/02) until 4am UK / 5am CET (21/02)
In a cool change reflecting the particular buzz for this Splatfest, it's been confirmed that global results will all be announced at the same time - hat tip to Perfectly Nintendo - which converts to the following times.
11pm Pacific (20/02) / 2am Eastern (21/02)
7am UK / 8am CET (21/02)
It should be a fascinating battle to see which gen 1 title comes out on top - which team will you be fighting for?
Well... as I always said, Blue is easily the superior version. Almost all version exclusives are stronger in Blue, at least by gen 1 standards.
Blastoise is the superior starter, but red version has Arcanine... of course we all know that yellow is the superior version
Ah um err I went Blue for Vulpix but that's all really.
The survey is kinda similar but these results (comments) are one sided.
I will be supporting Red as that was the version I chose so many years ago when this was new.
I got Red back on release day in 1998! That's my team
Man I want to keep that shirt.
Come on team red.
So sad I haven't been able to play online since summer.
I might play some Splatoon anyways just to see the shirt on my Inkling. Pokémon Blue was my first experience with Pokémon games so I'll go with Team Blue.
I when for team blue mostly because it was the game i got for my 7th birthday when it came out did have to wait two months. It was also the first Nintendo game i ever owned and it was my favorite game on the gameboy until gold and silver came out.
I like the idea of a global splatfest on one topic. The final outcome would be undebatable.
Blue! I am Blue_Blur after all!
Never experienced a Pokemon game, but I went with Red, only because I've never heard of the Blue Pokemon on the box. My six-year-old picked Red because he liked the dragon more than the turtle. Aside from Pikachu, he has no idea what Pokemon is - I take partial blame for that. Yet, he is very familiar with Yo-kai Watch. Sign of the times, I guess.
I might play a bit of this splatfest, but I imagine I'll probably just stick with playing Fates since I picked up my special edition today.
@jpfan1989 Mega Charizard sh*ts on Mega Blastoise.
Pokemon Fire Red is the only Pokemon game I've ever played sooooo... Pokemon Red, I Choose You! Red is also my favourite colour, LFC, You'll Never Walk Alone! Looking forward to this, I love Splatfest
Wow, that Splatfest art! Anyway, Team Blue! The blue shade you got on the Game Boy Color is easier on the eyes, and so was Blastoise compared to Charizard's funky-looking sprite.
Where's mah /red/bros at?
Go team Blue
Charizard is a handsome red beast! How could I not pick Red?
It makes a lot of sense that Marie chose Pokemon Blue
It's the best
go team blue := )
@Tsurii Ah. The link cable.
Anyone ever play the Pokemon Card Game on Gameboy Color, local battle with the infrared? That was a pretty crazy jump in tech (my first wireless game connectivity), it was at the top of the system so you had to keep the systems together (similar to the Digimon handhelds), if I recall right.
I have never ever played Pokemon, but chose red because well.. fire breathing dragons are just my thing...
Love that art! Team Marie!
Green, even if its Japan only.
Red and blue are overrated :>
Pokémon Red was my 1st game ever. Naturally I'm on team red.
I wonder who's gonna win. I was on Red, and honestly, my teams lost quite a bit. We had our fair share of wins as well, however, my friend was on Blue team, and he also said that he lost a lot too. It definitely didn't seem one-sided as far as popularity or wins/losses go.
