Do you want to play the upcoming “Pokémon Scarlet” and “Pokémon Violet” games? If so, it’s time to get even more excited, because the Pokémon Company appears to have some news for us all. With the release date set for November 18, 2022, Pokémon is now planning to reveal even more information about the next generation of Pokémon games. This will take place during the next Pokémon Presents, and “Scarlet” and “Violet” will not be the only titles to receive new teasers.
On the official Pokémon Twitter account, the company teased the usual Pokémon Presents — a video presentation filled with franchise news. There’s a reference to “updates on Pokémon apps and video games,” as well as a clear promise of more information about “Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.” With the release date only three months away, now is the time to tease what’s in store, though we already know quite a bit.
Perhaps the most exciting addition to this generation is the inclusion of multiplayer gameplay, which many fans have been hoping for for a long time. In addition, there are new Pokémon, a new region, and updated graphics. We have seen little of the new Pokémon, so fingers crossed for a gameplay trailer.
Here’s how to watch the August Pokémon Presents
The next Pokémon Presents will take place on Wednesday, August 3, 2022, at 2 p.m. BST, which translates to 9 a.m. ET, according to the Twitter announcement. If you live in a different time zone, you can use an online converter or simply go to the YouTube stream. There is a handy countdown that will tell you when you can watch the new Pokémon reveal. You can also sign up for notifications to be notified when the Pokémon event begins.
The video will most likely be pre-recorded, as with previous Pokémon Presents streams, so you won’t miss it if you can’t make the live stream. It will still be available to you later. According to Pokémon fansite Serebii, this stream will last 20 minutes, giving the company plenty of time to drop some juicy information not only on “Scarlet” and “Violet,” but also on other titles in the franchise.
It would make sense to have some news about “Pokémon Go” and “Pokémon Unite.” Fans may also be hoping for details on an alleged “Pokémon Detective Pikachu” game for the Nintendo Switch, or the next installment of “Pokémon Let’s Go.” What we really need is information on the 9th generation of Pokémon games, so let’s hope there’ll be plenty of that on August 3.
