Hello, Gamers! I am FINALLY getting to write on the Pokémon Presents that aired last Wednesday and I have got to say, they went over A LOT of information. With that being said, I’ll be breaking up my analysis into two articles. The first will go over all of the information not pertaining to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, with the second being about the new games exclusively.
I think you’ll see once I get into things here exactly why I chose to do this. ALSO! I will be updating my returning pokémon article so please be sure to go review it as well. For this first article, we will be going over information regarding the Pokémon World Championships, Pokémon Go, Pokémon Unite, Pokémon Masters, and Pokémon Café Remix.
There’s a lot to talk about here so let’s dive right on in!
*I forgot to include the video in the article, so here is an update with the video attached.
Pokémon World Championships 2022
The Pokémon World Championships are going to be held in London this year from 8/18-8/21 after a 3-year-long hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The championships will feature battles from the mainline games, the trading card game, and Pokkén Tournament DX as well as two new championships being added for Pokémon Go and Pokémon Unite. There will also be a Pokémon Center pop-up shop present at the event. We also get to see a picture of the adorable Pikachu trophy that will be awarded at the event!
Pokémon Go Fest News
Ultra Beasts will be appearing during the Pokémon Go Fest Finale! The event will be on 8/27 from 10 am-6 pm local time. Players can participate from wherever they are and there will be a chance for them to run into pokémon they cannot normally find in their area. On top of that, they’ll also be able to encounter the Mythical pokémon Shaymin via special event quests. Also being added is a new incense type called Daily Adventure Incense. It lasts for 15 minutes and can only be used once per day, but it will attract pokémon not normally encountered by the player including legendaries, so it’s a great incentive to log in and play for at least 15 minutes every day!
Pokémon Unite 1st Anniversary
The Pokémon Unite 1st Anniversary event is currently underway. To start off the event, a log-in bonus event for Glaceon was added and is still ongoing. Other events include the Pika Party quick battle, which will be available from 8/3 – 9/1! Buzzwole has also been added to the game as of 8/3. He is worth 12,000 aeos coins and he is an all-rounder. We can also expect Tyranitar to be added soon, but there is no date set yet for its release. Starting in September, we can expect 3 more pokémon to be added. As a special gift for the 1st Anniversary, Unite Licenses and Holowear are being given away for Pikachu, Lucario, Blastoise, Snorlax, and Sylveon.
Pokémon Masters 3-Year Anniversary
In celebration of Pokémon Master’s 3-Year Anniversary, something known as the Trainer Lodge is being added. Beyond that, we don’t currently have any more information regarding the event. There will be more details released about it at a later time.
Pokémon Café Remix
Mewtwo is returning to Pokémon Café Remix! There’s a special one-minute mode that you have to use staff with a small plate specialty to make orders for Mewtwo, then he will join your staff. Latias and Latios are also now available. From 8/3 – 8/11 (So just two days left!) you can use Express Delivery once per day for free to be able to obtain Latias and Victini.
Phew! That was A LOT of information to sift through Gamers, and I’m not even finished yet! Tomorrow, I will be uploading the article featuring new information for Pokémon Scarlet and Pokémon Violet. As mentioned earlier in today’s article, I will also be updating my returning pokémon article to reflect the pokémon shown off in the new video. There’s a lot to look forward to this week, so keep an eye out on social media for news on my current uploads. That’s all I have for you for now. Later, Gamers!
