Gotta catch ‘em all! Have you been playing every version of Pokemon since 1996? Today, Nintendo has announced that Pokemon Blue Pokemon Red, and Pokemon Yellow are making their way to the 3DS eShop as digital downloads.

Thats right, go digging through the tall grass for your Weedles, Pidgeys and more in glorious black and white like you remember. All three games will be exactly like they were originally with one big change: no Game Boy Link Cable needed for trades. You can do that via bluetooth now.

The trio will be available on February 27th, 2016 marking 20 years to the day from Red and Blue’s original Japan releases in 1996.
