There’s a Pokémon Nintendo Direct Broadcasting Tomorrow

Nintendo’s official YouTube channel has revealed there will be a Nintendo Direct tomorrow dedicated to all things Pokémon. The Pokemon Direct will take place on January 9, at 9:30 am ET, so be sure to tune in while you’re grabbing some breakfast.

Considering Pokémon Sword and Shield only released a couple of months ago, it might be a little early for any major announcements. Some DLC announcement for Pokémon SW/SH seems pretty likely, especially considering it’s much easier to implement on a large scale, what with the latest game being on a home console. It’ll probably come with some news about online play too, as fans have found that the SW/SH online functionality is inferior to that of its handheld predecessors, despite the jump in hardware.

It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to expect a new spin-off title to be revealed or possibly some Switch ports of older games to tide people over until the next major remake. That being said, there’s an argument to be made for a new Let’s Go game: its unique gameplay was a breath of fresh air for some fans and it would also serve to bolster the Switch’s Pokémon library.

With 2020 being a massive year for other industry titans like Sony and Microsoft, it’s no surprise Nintendo want to start out strong and put something on the table early. There’s also Pokémon GO to consider, which still has a generous player base to keep happy. We’ll probably hear more about Pokémon Sleep too- now you can literally play Pokémon 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Now that Pokémon Sword and Shield are out, things seem to have cooled off in the fanbase too. This is probably because of Pokemon SW/SH’s impressive sales figures and high review scores. Controversy or no controversy, Pokémon will always be a vacuum for cash.

What are you hoping to get out of this Pokémon dedicated direct? Pokémon “Lance”? Pokémon “Gun” maybe? Let us know down in the comments!
