Pokemon Presents August 18th - new details on D/P remakes, Legends Arceus gets release date

After making the formal reveal a few days ago, it's time for the latest Pokemon Presents livestream to kick off. Featuring 28 minutes of content on upcoming Pokemon titles like the Diamond and Pearl remakes, there's bound to be plenty of new information shown. The stream begins soon, so be sure to catch it live, or read up on the recap in this thread.

Live Coverage


Pokemon Unite will be launching on mobile on September 22nd. You can preregister for the game, which will have crossplay with the Nintendo Switch version.

Sylveon and Mamoswine will be the latest Pokemon added in a future update.

Pokemon Cafe Mix is getting a revamp. It'll be called Pokemon Cafe Remix, and it'll feature new puzzles to complete. The update is coming this fall.

Pokemon Masters EX is celebrating its two-year anniversary. There will be plenty of events to go along with the anniversary and new trainers to pull.

Galar region Pokemon will be added to Pokemon Go, with the Sword and Shield legendary dogs to be featured in raids.




Next is new footage on the D/P remakes. Stickers on Pokeballs are returning, along with the Union Room. You'll be able to dress your trainer up, and contests are making a return too. The underground is back, along with its secret bases. It appears that you can find Pokemon there too now.

Launching November 19th, with preorders to open today.

Statues placed underground will determine special Pokemon you can find there.

Pokemon will follow you like HGSS.

There will be a special edition Switch Lite with Dialga and Palkia.




Legends Arceus is next.

There will be new forms of old Pokemon, such as Growlithe and Stantler. You can ride various types of Pokemon across the landscape.

Launches January 28, 2022.

Your base will be located in what becomes Jubilife City.

Cyllene will be someone that helps you in your journey, though looks like an ancestor of Cyrus.

Base camps will let you craft items for your adventures.

Your character can be attacked by wild Pokemon.

There are two styles, strong and agile. The former will lower your speed but give you power, while the other will let you attack more often.

There's a proto Pokedex you'll be tasked with filling out.

Wyrdeer is the evolution of Stantler, a new form of Basculin, and a Hisuian Bravery. Growlithe will have rock type moves.

Brilliant Diamond / Shining Pearl look okay, seems like they want you to play this until Legends is out. I'll pick it up, looks fun.
Legends looks absolutely incredible and I am very excited to see how this 'Legends' moniker pans out. (prays for Legends Original Dragon/Birth of the Legendary Beasts in Johto, or the whole Kalosian War with AZ)

Wow the trailer for the remakes was terrible, Zoom in on blurry text, weird music that sounded very poorly mixed and had basically no pokemon themes in it and overall weird editing. I've seen fan trailers of much higher quality. strange..
Good thing the in game music isn't nearly as bad as the music in that trailer

Why the fuck are those limited edition Pokémon consoles only available on the lite model..who’s dumb decision was that

the OLED console is going to be out soon and this would have been an easy way to sell a bunch more units

also the lite is so useless without TV out. Might as well spend that tiny bit extra for the option of having a TV and still having portable mode (plus bigger portable screen)

dumb decision
by "tiny bit" do you mean "50%" / "$100" extra?

Welp, at least I know now not to get any of the DP remakes. It's official, the Battle Frontier is not making a comeback.

while I do agree that it's dumb that the lite is getting it instead of the oled model there is no doubting that the price point makes a big difference come birthday and christmas time

remake of daimond and pearl has no platinium content and no megas... dman also there will be no cross batles between mainline pokemon games even tough they have no new pokemons... yeah pokemon ip died on 3ds, now it will be one game per game no more continuity :S

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

I have a feeling that palkia, and dialga are going to gigantamax.
Because look at the timeline:
There was X and Y, which started doing Mega Evolution, yet their mascot legendaries couldn’t do it (lol sound familiar?) but the sapphire and ruby remakes after X and Y included the new feature, and had Mega Evolving legendaries (Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre).
So think of X and Y as Sword and Shield, and the sapphire and ruby remakes as the diamond and pearl remakes. Pokémon has always followed this timeline, I am looking forward to their Gigantamax forms.
they are not, there is no gigantamax here, they didnt even made teh game cross compatible, so the engine is diferent, you wont be able to battle with sword and shield they said so themselves on the end.

the pokemon timeline continuity ended on the 3ds, seems now we will get standalone games and then you will send your pokemons to pokemon home and if your game is compatible with said pokemon you can import it to that game.

this way they never bother to make the games cross compatible or using timeline or fulldex unfortunately. they changed the all continuity thing since the switch.

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

Love that they're adding Mamoswine! What a cool Pokemon to add.

Legends also looks super cool. That new fu dog growlithe is adorable!

I hope that D/P's pokedex is being added to Sword and Shield's. It would be lame to have a full adventure on D/P, only for your pokemon to be stuck there (or in HOME) until they finally make a Pokemon game that supports all of the pokemon. Though I did catch that bit at the end that said Ranked battles would still be in Sword and Shield and not in D/P or Legends, which doesn't really give hope....
they said there is no cross battles at the end so yeah no more updates to sword and shield, every game from now one will be its own and pokemon home will be a sort of migration app that will allow you to migrate pokemons if said pokemon appears in said game.

An extra $100 really isn’t that bad. The system is already expensive as is, might as well spend a tiny bit more to have a better experiance
Posts like these always amaze me. It's a full 50% more. $200 is already expensive to many people. There are also people who just don't care about the docking functionality, or feel it's not worth a full 50%/$100 extra. It's a really simple concept.

$200 is expensive but all things considered if you’re budgeting and saving for that $200 I personally feel like it’s worth it to budget and save a little bit longer to get an overall better experience and have more options

sure not everyone cares about docking, but for a larger much better portable screen ?

but hey that’s the joy of being human, everyone prefers different things. That’s just my mindset :)

Arceus looks to be running significantly below 1080p in the open world. At least the performance seems to be decent. Can't wait to see how gamefreak fucks the game up this time.

Also the trees are so fucking bad lmfao

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

AND...NO.....MEGA'S!!!!
Read the Sun/Moon pokedex entries for mega evolutions, the amount of guilt tripping in there holy shit. GF wanted to bury that mechanic BAD, it is NOT coming back ever.

Legends Arceus looks hype AF. It literally just looks like Pixelmon lmao. Glad battles are still in, I hope they're not gimped at all.


Actually insane how bad the textures are for Legends. Gameplay and frame rate is clearly much improved since the first trailer but I have no idea how people can be satisfied with the game looking that bad.

Oh no it's not Crysis graphics on a Nintendo game what ever will we do :(

I only play Pokemon for those sick hyper-realistic graphix bro

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.
