What to expect from the Pokemon Presents stream
The main thing Trainers should expect to see during the August 2021 presentation is new footage from the Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl remakes, which are only a few months away from their November 18 release date.
Recent footage has already shown off improved graphics since the original reveal trailer, so there’s a lot of intrigue surrounding the final version. We’d expect confirmation about gameplay details, too, and whether or not it will include Platinum features.
The most exciting part of this Pokemon Presents, though, is the promise of more Pokemon Legends: Arceus updates. We don’t know that much about the open-world title yet, as it’s not scheduled to release until January 28, 2022.
Any updates on the game will be welcome, but it would be great to hear more about the scale of the world, whether it’s an ATB or traditional turn-based battle system, and the size of the Pokedex (or any potential new Pokemon).
In the meantime, check out everything we know about the Diamond & Pearl remakes, as well as all of the exclusives you’ll find in each version.
