June 17 is shaping up to be a big day for Pokemon fans. Not only does it mark the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield’s first expansion, The Isle of Armor, but even more news is coming. The official Pokemon company announced a “Pokemon Presents” video at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET.
The tweeted announcement didn’t mention specifics of what to expect, other than “Pokemon news.” It may be that with Isle of Armor released, Nintendo and The Pokemon Company are ready to talk more about the second half of the expansion pass, The Crown Tundra. It could also be ready to show off its Pokemon Sleep app, or talk more about future plans for its mobile games like Pokemon Go and Pokemon Masters. Of course, it could just be something completely new.
Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra will add several new Pokemon, as well as older ones missing from the Galar dex, and Galarian variants. In The Isle of Armor, you’ll journey to a dojo where a trainer named Mustard gifts you with the Legendary teddy bear Pokemon Kubfu. With some training, it will evolve into one of two powerful Urshifu variants. You’ll also get a new rival depending on your game–the Poison-type trainer Klara for Sword, and the Psychic-type Avery for Shield. So far, Crown Tundra is only set for a fall 2020 release.
Pokemon Sleep has not been given a detailed debut, but it’s slated for a 2020 release.
