Everything that happened during the exciting Pokemon Presents presentation


Remakes! New stuff!

Pokémon pretty much has it made.

It has a huge history, and enough nostalgia to mine forever. Having a good cadence of "remakes, and new stuff" is pretty much perfect at this point. And they delivered both today.

Here's a full recap, including all the ancillary announcements before the big ones.

You can watch the whole thing here, which starts at 5:30 following a 25 years of Pokémon advertisement.

  • Pokémon Sword and Shield are holding Gigantamax Pikachu battles.
  • Pokémon Cafe Mix will grant you 2,500 Golden Acorns for logging in.
  • Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, and Mewtwo are appearing in Pokémon Go as a Kanto event.
  • In Pokémon Masters EX, Leon and Charizard will make an appearance.

Alright, and the big stuff!

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl remakes are happening.

And we got confirmation of a new project bound for "early 2022," which involves an earlier version of the Sinnoh region. It's called Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
