What happened during Pokemon Presents?
Here are the biggest announcements from the latest Pokemon Presents:
Pokemon Unite, which is already available on Nintendo Switch, will come to Android and iOS mobile devices on 22 September 2021 with Switch crossplay. The game will feature Mamoswine and Sylveon as two playable Pokemon, too.
Pokemon Cafe Remix
The Switch and mobile puzzle game is getting an upgrade that will be called Pokemon Cafe ReMix. The game is adding new touch-based puzzle elements, more Pokemon and dress options. Oh, and the Pokemon will be able to eat.
Pokemon Brilliant Diamon and Shining Pearl
The Pokemon Company revealed more information about the Diamon and Pearl remakes, which will still honor the originals, including the minigames like the Super Contests. You will also be able to personalise your trainer’s outfit and Poke Balls with stickers that add visual, animated effects to throws.
Finally, to celebrate the games' launch, there will be new Dialga and Palkia Switch Lite consoles.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus
We got a glimpse of how Pokemon battles will work in Legends: Arceus. When battles begin, you will have style options, such as “strong” or “agile," which change statistics on moves in different situations. Some Pokemon can also take a few turns in a row, based on their statistics. Four new Poeémon evolutions and variations are coming to the game’s new Hisui region, too. They're Wyrdeer, Hisuian Growlithe, Hisuian Braviary, and Basculegion, and an evolution of Basculin.
Is that it?
Nope. Not only are Pokemon fans getting updates on free-to-play MOBA Pokemon Unite and Pokemon Cafe Mix, but also five-year-old mobile game Pokemon Go and Pokemon Masters EX.
