New Pokemon Presents Will Focus on Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Diamond & Pearl

The forthcoming open-world game Pokémon Legends: Arceus, as well as Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, will be featured in a new Pokémon Presents livestream scheduled for August. Fans of the brand will not want to miss the second Pokémon Presents livestream of 2021.

This year celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Pokémon franchise, and Nintendo’s upcoming Pokémon games pay tribute to both the franchise’s past and future. The remakes of the Nintendo DS originals, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, will be released in November. Meanwhile, Pokémon Legends: Arceus is set to debut in early 2022, and fans are eager to learn more about the game, which has been likened to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

The next Pokémon Presents event is set for Wednesday, August 18 at 6:00 a.m. PDT, according to the official Pokémon Twitter account. The webcast will focus on Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, as well as Pokémon Legends: Arceus, for fans of the franchise.


It’s unclear whether the event will unveil any further Pokémon news, but it’s conceivable that the recently launched Nintendo Switch MOBA Pokémon Unite may be addressed, but a mobile release date has yet to be announced. Pokémon enthusiasts can watch the broadcast on the official Pokémon YouTube channel.

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl fans have already seen some of the updated remakes’ gameplay due to previews, but the Pokémon Presents event is anticipated to disclose additional information about the games’ improvements and features.

Since their first introduction, the games have undergone some aesthetic modifications, with the visuals in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl appearing even better than before in a recent Nintendo Switch OLED system teaser. The remakes, set in the Sinnoh region, have ditched the pixel visuals in favor of 3D models comparable to Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee or Pokémon Sword and Shield.

In terms of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Nintendo has a lot more information to provide. Its features and world have yet to be thoroughly explored, which should change following the broadcast of Pokémon Presents.

The game seems to have a large open environment, which might expand the franchise’s potential. Legends: Arceus is expected to provide more flexibility than any previous game in the Pokémon brand to date, with a greater emphasis on exploration. Later this month, the Pokémon Presents webcast should answer some of the game’s fans’ questions.
