Two Pokémon Announcement Streams Incoming

It seems like just yesterday that we were all hard at work writing up a recap of the Super Mario Maker 2 Direct (well, maybe a few weeks ago). Nintendo intends to keep the ball rolling though as The Pokémon Company has just announced that it will be hosting two streams of its own in the coming weeks. Tomorrow (5/28/19), a press conference centered around the Pokémon brand as a whole will be livestreamed at 6 PM PST direct from Tokyo. You can catch that conference tomorrow on YouTube, Twitch, the official Nintendo website, or

While the announcements from tomorrow’s event will encompass the brand as a whole, there will also be a special Nintendo Direct on June 5, 2019 which will focus on the upcoming Pokémon: Sword and Pokémon: Shield titles. That stream will premier at 6 AM PST and can be viewed through the same channels as the previous stream. Whether you’re a fan of just the video games or the series as a whole, the next few weeks are sure to be exciting. Stay tuned as announcements from both events begin to trickle out. Also, be sure to let us know in the comments below if you plan on picking either of these titles up.
