Whether it’s the social media countdown, a collaboration with Levi’s, or the announcement of a digital concert headlined by Post Malone, The Pokémon Company has recently been building the hype around the 25th anniversary of one of the world’s most recognizable entertainment franchises. While I love the song Sunflower as much as the next webhead, it hasn’t become abundantly clear how gamers will be able to celebrate their love for the iconic series. That all (hopefully) changes today.
The Pokémon Company is set to premiere a Pokémon Presents update that they say fans of all things Pikachu won’t want to miss. While there are sure to be updates on Pokémon projects outside of games, there are plenty of titles in the works fans hope to get an update on.
We know New Pokémon Snap is coming to the Nintendo Switch on April 30, so now seems like a prime time to show off the first substantive look at how the game will actually play. Outside of that, we haven’t seen anything from Pokémon Unite, the moba collaboration between The Pokémon Company and Tencent. But what other surprises could the day hold? Will we get a Let’s Go treatment for either Gold/Silver or Diamond/Pearl? Will the Game Boy classics ever make their way to Nintendo’s handheld hybrid? Only time will tell, but I can tell you one thing for sure. We’ll be there to react to it all.
Join Pokémon expert Brian Shea, Alex Van Aken, and me as we watch today’s Pokémon Presents with you live and react to all the biggest announcements and surprises.
The show officially kicks off at 9 a.m. CT, but we’ll be going live at 8:45 a.m. CT for a little preshow action featuring our rock-solid predictions for what we think The Pokémon Company will be showing off!
