Nintendo and The Pokémon Company are hosting a new Pokémon Presents presentation.
The upcoming Pokémon Presents promises to offer updates on Pokémon apps and video games. This includes the upcoming launch of the tentpole Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet titles.
Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet are both set to launch on November 18th. The Nintendo Switch exclusives are likely to draw quite the player base, as is tradition for Pokémon’s mainline titles. In June, we caught the first look at the games’ three starters: Sprigatito, Fuecoco and Quaxly.
However, there is still a lot to cover both in terms of notable features and new Pokémon to collect. The games are set in an open world somewhat inspired by Spain. Though, that’s the extent of what we know of the ninth generation of games. Typically, new mainline entries introduce a new twist on gameplay, but that remains to be seen. Additionally, we still don’t know what the extent of the PokéDex will be.
In addition to Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet, The Pokémon company will likely cover titles and apps for mobile, including Pokémon Go and Pokémon Unite.
On top of that, The Pokémon Company may use this opportunity to re-introduce Pokémon Sleep, which the publisher has remained tight-lipped on since its reveal. The iOS and Android app was first revealed in 2019 with a 2020 launch scheduled. However, there’s been no word on the development of the app. The Pokémon Company has not officially cancelled the project, leading many to believe development is ongoing.
Trainers can tune in to the Pokémon Presents on August 3rd at 9am ET/6am PT. The presentation airs on the Pokémon YouTube channel.
