The Pokémon Company announced that they were bringing back the catch phrase "Gotta Catch 'Em All"! To celebrate, they created code hunt and gave people in the United States the chance to win cool Pokémon stuff! The video accidentally leaked a week ago, so it was speculated that the big announcement would be related. The video was created by Pogo who made a version of the classic theme song.
