Everything Announced At The February Pokemon Direct

The Pokemon Company have overnight announced several new updates to the latest Pokemon projects in the works to celebrate the franchises’ anniversary.

POKEMON DIAMOND AND PEARL ARE GETTING THE REMAKE TREATMENT

Called Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, the games feature a new cutesy art direction. They’re both heading to Nintendo Switch later this year.

A BRAND NEW, OPEN-WORLD PREQUEL GAME WAS ANNOUNCED TOO

It’s called Pokemon Legends: Arceus and is releasing in early 2022. The game features an art style similar to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and takes Pokemon to an open-world like never seen before.

POKEMON GO! IS GETTING SOME LEGENDARY RAID BATTLES

Mewtwo, Zapdos, Articuno and Moltres will be appearing. Talk about the OGs!

LEON AND CHARIZARD ARE APPEARING IN POKEMON MASTERS EX

He was obviously the best thing about Sword and Shield so it makes sense for him to appear here.
