The original Pokemon starters are now in Super Mario Maker

Between the Super Bowl commercial, new games like Pokken Tournament and Pokemon Go, and the re-release of the original Game Boy games, you might think you've already had enough Pokemon for one year — but you'd be wrong. Today Nintendo released a trio of new costumes for its build-your-own-Mario-game Super Mario Maker, and they're based on the original starters from the very first Pokemon game. That's right, you can finally have Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur exploring 2D side-scrolling levels. It even features the right sound effects! The costumes are free, but to unlock them you'll need to complete a new Pokemon-themed course that's just been added to the game.
