We all know that Pokemon took over the surface of the Earth four years ago with the advent of Pokemon Go, but the pocket monsters aren’t going to be contained to the planet forever. That’s because Pokemon will invade the International Space Station for a special streaming event on December 31.
When Pokemon Go was launched, one of the first questions that people had about the game was whether or not it could be played from space. As it turns out, the answer is no. There are smartphones aboard the International Space Station, but those are used for conducting experiments and aren’t typically connected to the internet. At least, that was the story four years ago.

Because this event will be streaming, one would assume that there is indeed internet connectivity on the ISS. The official Pokemon Twitter handle (and the handle for the Pokemon company in Japan) informed us of this very special event on Saturday, December 26, but didn’t give too much away on what to expect.
If you are interested in seeing what the company has in store, you will need to “tune in” here to watch the event. The broadcast will begin at 11:45 pm on December 31 and will show the first sunrise of 2021 from aboard the International Space Station’s Kibo module. The Kibo module is the largest module of the ISS and is owned by the country of Japan. The Pokemon Company, for its part, didn’t tell us what exactly we should expect to see during the stream, but its US counterpart did mention that some Pokemon will make an appearance.
It would probably be safe to assume that whatever Pokemon do make it to the ISS stream, they will be of the space variety. Unfortunately, there is no way to know for sure, so we’ll have to stay awake to watch and find out. Aside from being a fun way to bring in the new year, likes and retweets with the hashtag #Kibo will earn 0.1 yen from Twitter Japan to go toward Japan’s space development program.
