The Pokémon Company has announced a 14-minute Pokémon Presents video showcase that will air on Sunday, February 27, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. ET / 6:00 a.m. PT. February 27 is “Pokémon Day” because making up holidays is all the rage in PR departments, and The Pokémon Company has been building up to that day by making small announcements for existing projects each day since the 21st. However, the February 27 Pokémon Presents video showcase will likely give us news on brand new, unannounced projects as well.

That’s just speculation though, since The Pokémon Company has not actually hinted at what will appear. Still, there are a few potential suspects. For one thing, it could reveal the next major Pokémon console game following the release of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, but it seems a bit too early for that. A more likely announcement is that the event will reveal DLC for Arceus. Or perhaps first details will finally be revealed of the long-anticipated Detective Pikachu 2 video game. It’s also been a long time since we heard about the mobile app Pokémon Sleep, which will “turn sleep into entertainment” somehow.

News of some new mobile game or at least a major content update for MOBA Pokémon Unite seems likely for the February 27 Pokémon Presents as well, but again, this is all speculation. There could be something much more major — or mundane — waiting in the wings.
