Right now, it's not entirely clear what we can potentially expect from the new Pokemon Presents later this week. The immediate obvious topic of speculation is Pokemon Legends Arceus, the brand new action-based RPG which launched late last month in January. There's been a lot of debate about DLC for Pokemon Legends Arceus - could this showcase be the time to announce it?

All throughout this week, The Pokemon Company has been unveiling various news for all sorts of Pokemon games. To mark Pokemon Day, reveals have been taking place surrounding Pokemon Go, Pokemon Unite, Pokemon Sword and Shield, Pokemon Masters EX, and more, with a few reveals yet to come later this week. So the question is: what's in this new Pokemon Presents showcase that isn't in the reveals this week?
