E3 2021 is coming digitally next month, and Nintendo will be there, delivering its usual set of big announcements. There are rumors surrounding a new internally developed Donkey Kong game, as well as a rumor that a new 2D Metroid from MercurySteam is outright finished. And now we’re going to just toss one more rumor into the mix, albeit one that sounds like a safer bet than the other two: Leaker Kelios is claiming that a Pokémon Presents presentation will occur in early June 2021, with release dates for games like MOBA Pokémon Unite and remakes Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
Dw, and yep Pokémon Presents incoming early June to announce Pokémon UNITE release, BDSP release date etc.

Just prior to the formal reveal of Pokémon Legends: Arceus in February, Kelios leaked images and video of the game in advance. Kelios also accurately predicted a Pokémon Presents was coming in February. Thus, a Pokémon Presents in June seems pretty likely, acting as a sort of a satellite event revolving around the Nintendo E3 2021 Direct.
Presuming this does indeed pan out, it would be nice if this Pokémon Presents can provide updates on projects we haven’t heard about in a long time, such as Pokémon Sleep and the Detective Pikachu game sequel. Just don’t expect any updates on a Detective Pikachu movie sequel.
