Pokemon Presentation airing tomorrow at 7:00 am PST/10:00 am EST

Today the official Pokemon twitter account confirmed that there would be a special presentation airing tomorrow on 2/26 @ 7:00 a.m. PDT/10:00 a.m. EST. This presentation will be airing on Pokemon day, which is n February 27th in Japan time, and will coincide with the 25th anniversary of the series.


Game Freak definitely wants to make this anniversary a blast, as we are getting several events including a concert from American rapper Post Malone which will be airing earlier in the day. You can learn more about the official events relating to Pokemon’s 25th anniversary here.

Yes this is an actual image from the Pokemon Twitter account

The Pokemon series first started with Pokemon Red and Green versions which released on February 27th, 1996. Since then, the Pokemon series has become a worldwide phenomenon. Outside of games, the Pokemon series spans trading cards, an anime, multiple movies, toy brands, and much more. Even today, the games are still super popular as Pokemon Sword/Shield are currently the fifth best-selling Switch games as of this writing (as well as the best-selling mainline entry titles since Gold/Silver).

Although there is no confirmation that a new Pokemon game will be announced during the presentation, it certainly would not be the first time a new title was revealed on Pokemon day. Pokemon Sun/Moon were revealed on Pokemon day 2016 which was also the 20th anniversary of the series, while Sword/Shield were also revealed on Pokemon day 2019. Whether we get a new game or not, there is definitely a lot to look forward to tomorrow.


Author’s Note: What you are expecting (and hoping) to see during tomorrow’s presentation? Let us know in the comments below!

Let's pray that a Pokemon Colosseum or Gale Of Darkness type of game is in the works. Sword/Shield already built the 3D platform and Pokemon GO even includes Shadow Pokemon. So it's still a mildly relevant part of Pokemon that'll lead to an adventure that's not centered around getting Pokemon Badges.

Give us the edgy shadows, you cowards. :secretkpop:

I'm hoping for any of the following:
A Pokemon Rumble game for mobile platforms
New info on New Pokemon Snap
I hope there isn't a new expansion pass for Sw/Sh. Maybe the announcement of a new mainline game would be nice, but if it is, I hope it comes out in like, late 2022 at the absolute earliest. They need to give some more time into optimizing the Sw/Sh engine for Switch as well as just-y'know-making it better.
Finally, Gengar in Smash. Probably won't happen since Pyra and Mythra were just announced, and the last two fighters will most likely be saved for E3, but hey, I can dream.
 
Explains why the Smash presentation was pushed back a week later than usual. Still hoping for DPPT remakes or something like Pokemon XD though.
 
What I expect: more New Pokémon Snap info, more info on Pokémon Unite, the reveal of the Diamond & Pearl remakes.

What I want: Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Explorers of Sky DX, any Pokémon Ranger game being remade for the Switch, and Diamond & Pearl remakes.

(A new Pokémon Colosseum/XD would be cool too.)
 
While like everyone I'm hoping and somewhat expecting Diamond/Pearl remakes to be announced.

I also wouldn't mind a "Let's Go Johto" announcement, I actually really enjoyed "Let's Go Pikachu" and while some people like to criticize the "Go" mechanics like catching wild Pokemon, It honestly wasn't that big of a deal for me because at it's "Core" it's still played like a traditional mainline Pokemon game, I also plan on playing "Let's Go Pikachu" again this upcoming Saturday in celebration of Pokemon's 25th anniversary.

Either way I would be happy with both, I think Diamond and Pearl remakes are more likelier, But I wouldn't mind or be surprised for them to tackle another "Let's Go" game in the future with Johto as the next region.
 
I love Gen 2 so anything like a 3D remake or Johto / Gen 2 game would be amazing. I think honestly anything that is a remake or feels like a main series game that doesn't have a (ridiculous) gimmick like Dynamaxing, I'll be excited for.

I loved the N64 Pokemon Snap back in the day, I think I'm most excited for that, and we know that's already coming out soon.
 
Pokemon Legends looks interesting, but it really looks like Breath of the Wild with some Pokemon themes slapped onto it, hah. (Not that that's a bad thing.) The animations are really janky looking, but it's probably still in development. At least it looks interesting. Sinnoh remakes definitely a disappointment to me, but neat if you didn't play the original. The Pokemon models look better but it doesn't feel like a Switch game like Sword / Shield, just a slightly better DS game. Which is fine, haha. Snap 2 looks great though, I loved the 1st one.

Im not sure what you are talking about the Pokemon models where only slightly improved (for example staralili sits down Yes)
But the Artstyle is similar to Links awekening Switch and the Original Dp which means simple but full of personality and far less bland than Sword and shield
imean i probably will play as Lucas (lucius ya know the male trainer) but this model is adorable far better thanSun and moon and SW Sh where everyone had a stick up his butt

AND ITS NOT DEVELOPED BY GAME FREAK SO MAYBE WE GET CAVES; DUNGEONS AND CHALLENGE AGAIN
