The Pokémon Company has a number of announcements planned for next month, including a brand new pokémon coming to Sword & Shield.
With Temtem threatening to encroach upon Pokémon’s success, the original magical creature catching series may need to do something big to keep hold of its fans.
Next month, it plans to do just that, as The Pokémon Company has made an official announcement regarding Pokémon Day, the series’ anniversary event.
On Thursday 27 February, the day the first Pokémon games were released, the company has a number of reveals planned for the occasion, with arguably the biggest one being the reveal of a brand new mythical pokémon.
Described as a ‘phantom pokémon,’ it will be making an appearance in the Sword & Shield games, as well as the upcoming movie Pokémon Coco, which is due to release in Japan this summer.
Not much is really known about the movie, aside from that Ash and Pikachu will star in it and will feature a Tarzan-like character (possibly the titular Coco).
That won’t be all, though, as a special Max Raid Battle for Sword & Shield and an in-game event for Pokemon GO are planned as well. Maybe these events will be how you obtain this new pokémon?
Lastly, new information on the other mobile title, Pokémon Masters, will be announced.
All in all, it looks like the Pokémon brand is as strong as ever and has no signs of slowing down, even in spite of the controversies from last year.
