The Pokémon Presents Is Happening Tonight/Tomorrow So Here Are The Australian Times

Get a Pika-t what's coming!

Hot off of last week’s stacked Nintendo Direct Partner Showcase which gave us a look at upcoming third-party titles to look forward to for the rest of the year, The Pokémon Company is also coming in with a presentation of its own in celebration of Pokémon Day 2024. A brand-new Pokémon Presents has been announced for tomorrow, February 28th at 1AM AEDT.

The presentation will go live on the official Pokémon YouTube channel, where it’s promised that fans will be able to view “exciting Pokémon news” in celebration of Pokémon Day 2024.

Here’s how that time shakes out around the nation:


  • 1.00 AM AEDT (Melbourne/Sydney/Hobart/Canberra)
  • 12.30 AM ACDT (Adelaide)
  • 12.00 AM AEST (Brisbane)
  • 11.30 PM Feb 27th ACST (Darwin)
  • 10.00 PM Feb 27th AWST (Perth)
  • 3.00 AM NZDT (Wellington)

The last time we got a Pokémon Presents showcase was in August 2023, which showed us updates on the second part of Pokémon Scarlet/Pokémon Violet’s DLC expansion as well as a variety of animated series’, mobile apps and of course a couple of new classic Pokémon games for the Nintendo Switch Online service.

With a lot of that stuff now released, wrapped up or underway there’s seemingly not much left that fans know of, so this new Pokémon Presents could very well drop in some juicier news around the future of the Pokémon video games.

Pokémon Day festivities are already well underway locally as well with EB Games giving out limited edition Charizard EB World cards to members for free and both EB and JB Hi-Fi slinging a bonus limited edition Ceruledge Pokémon card with eligible purchases of Pokémon TCG products.
