Heading into the weekend, The Pokémon Company has announced their latest Pokémon Presents showcase will air next week, and it could be a big one.
When it comes to Pokémon, there is a whole community dedicated to leaks, rumours, and speculation. But this time around, a Pokémon Presents is indeed happening, and it will arrive in less than a week! The Pokémon Company spilled the beans themselves by way of Tweet, where they showed some neon lighting, leading to even more speculation to the Pokémon sleuths out there.
Ahead of the Pokémon Presents, there have been a lot of announcements for the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet & Violet expansions. Fans have been exposed to the upcoming The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero two-part expansion set to release this year, but that hasn’t stopped fans from wildly speculating about the contents of the expansions or even new titles.
Renowned X (formerly Twitter) account @Riddler_Khu has been a prominent face (or lack thereof) in the Pokémon community for years, and the person behind the account has promised to “drop riddles before presents live contents for fun, so stay tuned.” The account has been notorious for dropping Pokémon-based riddles dealing with upcoming content, and this time is no different, but the catch is the riddles posted usually lead to actual information about upcoming releases, such as the account’s correct assumption regarding Detective Pikachu Returns prior to an official announcement. It’s worth noting that although track records can be proven, information could be false, so fans should keep expectations tempered for the time being.
While there has literally been no other information given regarding the upcoming Pokémon Presents, the live stream is set to air next week, on August 8 at 9:00 a.m. EST on the official Pokémon YouTube channel. Fans can also read up on The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero in the meantime.
