While recent news of no New Year's event in Pokemon Go may have left some fans feeling a little bummed out, a new ongoing Twitter thread started by the official Pokemon account is ringing in feelings of hope and confidence for the coming year.
The responses ranged from a few genuinely earnest wishes, to jabs at some of the franchise's characters and references to some of its most important moments.
