A Pokémon Presents 2022 presentation is confirmed and will bring news of what's coming soon for the worldwide phenomenon of a franchise.

When is the next Nintendo Direct?

The next Nintendo Direct, a Pokémon Presents, in fact, will take place on Sunday, 27 February at 2pm UK time (GMT). Here are the start times for other locations:

  • US West Coast: 6am PT
  • US East Coast: 9am ET
  • Central Europe: 3pm CET

Little is known about the presentation apart from that it will last around 14 minutes containing the "latest information". Considering it takes place on Pokémon Day, we're hoping for some big news.

This could include the reveal of Detective Pikachu 2, an Expansion Pass DLC for Pokémon Legends: Arceus or perhaps a completely brand new game.

What is Nintendo Direct?

Nintendo Direct is the legendary Japanese gaming company's way of communicating with both the press and fans. It's namely for making news announcements for upcoming games.

The announcements can vary, from new gameplay features to new accessory reveals and even release date announcements. Previously, Nintendo used its Direct presentations to unveil the Nintendo Switch, as well as many of its best Nintendo Switch games and best 3DS games.

Occasionally there will be a dedicated Pokémon Direct presentation especially for the franchise, or particular games like Smash Bros and Animal Crossing.
