The Pokémon world has been relatively quiet since the last significant update in February, but fear not — an information deluge is just around the corner. The Pokémon Company has scheduled the next edition of its Pokémon Presents event for August 8th, starting at 9AM Eastern. While the organizers are keeping the details under wraps, they have confirmed that a 35-minute presentation will be streamed on the company’s YouTube channel.
A host of video game-related news is likely to be part of the event. There’s still a lot to uncover about the first DLC for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, named The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero. Additionally, we might get further insights into Detective Pikachu Returns, due for its exciting journey in October. It wouldn’t be a surprise to hear about fresh content for Pokémon Go, Pokémon Unite, and other games. Don’t exclude the possibility of unexpected revelations like classic game remakes, and updates on streaming series like Netflix’s Pokémon Concierge might be on the table too.
However, don’t anticipate sneak peeks for next-generation games. According to rumors from VGC, Nintendo’s subsequent console may not launch until the latter part of 2024. Hence, neither hardware nor software previews are likely to be part of the event. Still, the 35-minute duration of the event suggests that The Pokémon Company has plenty of information to share, even if it isn’t all groundbreaking or game-centric.
