A Pokémon Day was an annual event organised by Nintendo that took place in the Netherlands. It was originally held at a theme park, Avonturenpark Hellendoorn, and was moved to Walibi World in 2008. During each Pokémon Day (except for 2010), event Pokémon or items were given away. At every Pokémon Day there were several other things to do. You could test the newest Pokémon games, one could shop in one of the Pokémon Shops. They sold Pokémon Trading Card Game Booster Packs and other Pokémon products like plushies and Poké Balls. At every Pokémon Day one could view the newest movie. In 2008 the movie "Pokémon 10: The Rise of Darkrai" was broadcasted, in 2009 the movie "Pokémon 11: Giratina and the Sky Warrior" and in 2010 the movie "Pokémon 12: Arceus and the Jewel of Life".

In 2010 it seemed that the Pokémon Day was not held, because the same year Disney XD had taken over Jetix. At the last moment, two weeks before the Pokémon Day was held, it was announced on television.

The official website of the Pokémon Day was http://www.pokemonday.nl/ *

In 2010, the last Pokémon Day in Walibi World was held. PS-Games, the sponsor and distributor of the Pokémon Day in the Netherlands is declared bankrupt. That same company saw the profits fall with 3,9 million euro to 5,6 million euro indebted with 2,2 million euro.

A similar event is held in Italy and Germany every year.
