What to expect from the August 2023 Pokémon Presents

The description for the event states that this Pokémon Presents will feature “Pokémon news and a spotlight on the latest happenings across the brand it comes to games.” When it comes to upcoming games, there are multiple things that are almost guaranteed to show up here. Detective Pikachu Returns launches on October 6, and our only real look at it so far was in the June Nintendo Direct. As such, this would be an excellent place for a deep dive into its gameplay and story, showing how this game evolves on what the 2018 3DS game established.

We’ll also probably get another look at The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero expansions for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Hopefully, a release date for at least the first part, The Teal Mask, will be part of this showcase. Considering the existence of this Pokémon Presents leaked before its announcement thanks to a Pokémon Masters EX datamine, it’s likely some update for that game appears here as well.

Other than those, it’s hard to predict what else will show up during this presentation. That longer length and the glitchy intro to the Pokémon Presents’ reveal video could suggest a new game reveal is on the horizon, but that runtime could also signify lengthy deep dives into the known Pokémon games as well as non-game related Pokémon merchandise and events. I guess we’ll all have to tune in later today to find out.

Pokémon Presents February 2022: How to watch, what to expect

The Pokémon series is set to host its own digital event titled "Pokémon Presents" this week on February 27. The presentation is set to be a celebration of the series, airing on the 26th anniversary of the first Pokémon game releases, Pokémon Red and Green (yes, Green, not Blue). It's a day many fittingly call Pokémon Day.

While the Pokémon series has had quite a few releases recently it's a mystery to think what could be the star showing of the show. Despite that here are the details of when it airs, how to watch, and what to expect.
When is Pokémon Presents?
Pokémon Presents is set to air on Sunday, February 27, 2022, at 6 a.m. PT. The official announcement states that the runtime is scheduled to be around 14 minutes.
Where to watch Pokémon Presents?
Fans of the pocket monsters can catch the live showing of the event on the official Pokémon YouTube channel. It will remain on the channel as a video after the stream for anyone that misses the event or the live tweets sure to come with it.
What to expect from Pokémon Presents?
The huge question around the event is what exactly will be shown. The Pokémon Company dropped both new remakes and the popular Pokémon Legends: Arceus in the past few months, so there is no speculation over a big announcement as of now. This leaves everyone completely clueless for the first time in a long time about what may appear. And at only 14 minutes, it probably won't be too much.
