To celebrate Pokémon Day and the 25th anniversary of the series, the Pokémon Company aired a Pokémon Presents to reveal the future of the series.
It was hosted by Pokémon Company’s president, Tsunekazu Ishihara, and started with a special montage celebrating 25 years of Pokémon.
It was followed by a new trailer for New Pokémon Snap showing that you can decorate your photos and share them online for other players to rate.
Next, are the two big announcements.
“Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl are faithful remakes of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, which originally came out on the Nintendo DS system. Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl are planned to launch on Nintendo Switch later this year”; however, we also saw what’s arriving next year.
“Trainers will get the chance to explore the Sinnoh region in a new way—by traveling to the past in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Set long before the events of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, this game will allow players to travel across Sinnoh to discover wild Pokémon and complete the region’s very first Pokédex. And while Mount Coronet towering over the region makes it clear that you’re in Sinnoh, the Pokémon you encounter in this era may be different from the ones you remember catching in other games set in this same region. Pokémon Legends: Arceus is planned to launch on Nintendo Switch early next year .”
