Last week, The Pokémon Company held a special livestream. The show covered Sword and Shield‘s DLC, the surprise reveal of New Pokémon Snap, and more. CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara ended the presentation by teasing that he had one more “big project” in the works. Rather than show it off right away, he scheduled that reveal for one week later. The big day is finally here, and Pokémon Presents will be starting soon!
Watch Pokémon Presents live
Today’s Pokémon Presents will last for approximately 11 minutes. It all kicks off at 6:00 a.m. Pacific / 9:00 a.m. Eastern. That’s 2:00 p.m. for our readers in the UK. You can watch along with us by clicking the livestream below, and we’ll be covering any major news as it breaks!
What’s the next big project?
So what can we expect from this Pokémon Presents? And what is the next big project? It’s definitely way too early for the reveal of the ninth generation of main series games, especially since Sword and Shield still have more DLC coming. I’m personally hoping Game Freak is finally going to take us back to the Sinnoh Region with remakes of Diamond and Pearl. They could also choose to capitalize on the Let’s Go games with sequels.
Another possibility is that today’s Pokémon Presents won’t be about a game at all. The next big project from The Pokémon Company could be anything really. Pokémon is a massive IP with all sorts of associated media, including movies, a TV series, cards, toys, and more. The possibilities are endless. We’ll just have to watch the livestream together and find out!
