We may be in the process of getting some big news coming out, as Nintendo has announced that a Pokemon Nintendo Direct would be coming tomorrow at 6 A.M. Pacific Standard Time. The segment will only last seven minutes, but who knows what could be announced during those seven short minutes?
While Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee and Let’s Go Pikachu only released last year, we haven’t had an actual main-line Pokemon game since Pokemon Sun and Moon came out back in 2016. Before then, Pokemon X and Y came out in 2013. With the three year gaps normally done with Pokemon games, 2019 is around the time that we should be getting new ones.
Supporting this is the information graphic that announced the Pokemon Nintendo Direct in the first place, which depicted three Poke Balls. This is likely symbolic of the starters of a possible new region, especially since Gen 8 is next up. For the past several days the official Pokemon YouTube channel has also been putting up vacation-style ads about each Pokemon region, which also lends credence to the idea.
There’s no telling, however, what this new Pokemon game will even be. While there’s a possibility of it being a remake of a previous version, we already got Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire during the last generation, and another Kanto remake with Let’s Go, so it’s likely not going to be a Diamond and Pearl remake (though the possibility is still open after Generation 8 starts).
At the same time, the videos of each of the previous regions have caused some people to believe that the next Pokemon game will be taking us to every region in the Pokemon World all in the same game. This game is likely the Switch Pokemon game we were promised besides Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee, which we may find out about at the Pokemon Nintendo Direct.
Check your local time and convert it if you want to be ready for the Direct in time, and it once again starts tomorrow at 6 A.M. Pacific Standard Time.
