Pokémon fans might not want to get too overly excited about tomorrow’s Direct if they’re hoping to see something crazy like the long-awaited Diamond and Pearl remakes or the announcement of a new game.
Twitter user Ruki185 has reportedly unearthed exactly what the Pokémon Direct will be about. The 20-minute show is reportedly being dedicated to new information on Pokémon Sword and Shield. That’s it.
This could mean one of a few things if it turns out to be true. We could still get details about Pokémon HOME and its release and how it ties in with the Switch games. We could also get information on the 30 plus Pokémon hidden in the game’s files since launch, with Litten, Rowlet, Mewtwo, and more waiting to be added to the game.
The Direct might also reveal official release dates for the rest of the Gigantamax Pokemon that still aren’t in the game, like Melmetal and Toxtricity. And there’s always the chance that fans will be treated to some new information that they weren’t expecting, too.
But anyone hoping to see a new game release this soon or a tease of any other Pokémon title might be a little disappointed.
