I hope they dont consider Pokemon Unite as big news..
Sadly they probably do.
Yeah, no. The game is in beta mode right now. They can't seriously give it a platinum pedestal.
Yeah. I know there was speculation that it was going to get shadow dropped on Pokemon day, but apparently a Canadian Beta was announced for April? I mean if that's the case we're still a long ways off.

I suppose the one thing I can say about Unite is it's free, so it won't cost anything to try it. But at the same time... Okay I've never played any MOBA's. But I swear they all look the same to me. I mean do they all have the same sort of branching paths through the stage or whatever?

MOBA's just feel like one of those things that are going to eventually implode due to a lack of diversity, and a oversaturation to me.

Pokemon Unite lets you have a Garchomp wearing a scuba mask and a Hawaiian (Alolan?) shirt which other MOBAs can't say.

Please, there's only one line of Pokemon I want to see wearing an Alolan shirt, and that's the Slowpoke line. They missed such an opportunity for an Alolan Slowpoke/Bro/King in gen VII I tells yah.

Hell, not even Pokken got that far but it lazily gave outfits to the freaking 2D avatar.

This is not the thread to go into random discussion about games that have not been announced.

Thanks.

So far, all we've gotten in terms of info for Pokemon Week are what's in store for the mobile games next month. Though I have a feeling we'll be getting big stuff soon.
I’m gonna guess that tomorrow at around 9/10am eastern they will announce a direct for Friday morning around the same time.

But why Pokémon Presents instead of Pokemon Direct? Doesnt it make the change of a new Switch game lower? Idk the difference
I really don't see the difference. Direct or Presents, it's still a Pokemon video that announces things.

Edit:
Besides, the last Pokemon Direct was January 9, 2020. After that, we had two Pokemon Presents (June 17 and 24th). I think this is their new "Direct".

I have a trauma from the Pokémon Presents we had last year, where we only got Unites news
Same. Wasted time and sleep on that one.

By the way, it's also called "Pokemon Presents" because it contains products that are not just for Nintendo systems.
