The Pokemon Company is hosting another Pokemon Presents next week, guaranteed to feature 20 minutes worth of "exciting" news. 

As announced via the official Twitter account, we're getting another Pokemon Presents showcase on February 27, 2023 - also known as Pokemon Day. There are lots of things that could come out of this livestream as we've already been promised "about 20 minutes of exciting Pokemon news" in honour of Pokemon Day 2023.

To tune in live, fans should head to the official Pokemon YouTube channel at 6AM PT / 9AM ET / 2PM GMT

Speaking of Pokemon Day, last week it was spotted that a new website had been launched in honour of the annual fan event. Although the website looks pretty ordinary on the surface, a datamine of the new site did reveal a mention of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon developer Spike Chunsoft. 

Now, we're not saying that a new Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game is set to be revealed, but considering this is the second time the spin-off game has been mentioned recently (the first being in the form of an email from Nintendo), we wouldn't be surprised if it did make an appearance during next week's event. 

In terms of some probably less likely but still plausible predictions, fans are holding out hope for some Pokemon Scarlet and Violet DLC - which would be pretty impressive to see from developer Game Freak considering the base game was only released last November. 

There's also a lot of speculation surrounding the recently launched Nintendo Switch Online Game Boy/GBA expansions which, as of right now, are lacking a lot of classic Pokemon titles like Pokemon Yellow, Pokemon Gold/Silver, Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire, and more. 

While we wait for this livestream to kick off, find out if your favourite made our best Pokemon games list.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
