Recap of everything announced in the Pokémon Presents 2.26.2021 presentation (Pokémon Legends: Arceus and Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl), official websites featuring artwork, screenshots, and details now live

It's a great day to be a Pokémon trainer!

The Pokémon Day festivities kicked off a day early with a news-filled Pokémon Presents event. Hosted by The Pokémon Company's president, Tsunekazu Ishihara, the special presentation started with an incredible video showcasing the 25-year history of Pokémon. Pokémon Day marks the date that Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green were first launched in Japan in 1996, starting a legacy that continues to grow to this day.

After the 25th celebration video, we got to see more of New Pokémon Snap, arriving on April 30 on Nintendo Switch. You can get a closer look at what was revealed at the New Pokémon Snap official site.

Next up was a preview of the in-game events happening on Pokémon Day, including encounters with Gigantamax Pikachu in Max Raid Battles in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. Plus, Galar Champion Leon has recently made his appearance in Pokémon Masters EX alongside his partner Charizard. And Pokémon Café Mix keeps serving up fun by giving players 2,500 bonus golden acorns when they log in.

Then, new games were unveiled, all for Nintendo Switch and all set in the Sinnoh region: Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl, as well as Pokémon Legends: Arceus. These games may be set in the same region, but they offer distinct gameplay experiences.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Trainers will get the chance to explore the Sinnoh region in a new way—by traveling to the past in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Set long before the events of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, this game will allow players to travel across Sinnoh to discover wild Pokémon and complete the region's very first Pokédex. And while Mount Coronet towering over the region makes it clear that you're in Sinnoh, the Pokémon you encounter in this era may be different from the ones you remember catching in other games set in this same region. Pokémon Legends: Arceus is planned to launch on Nintendo Switch early next year.

Visit the Pokémon Legends: Arceus official site for more details.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl

Trainers will also get the chance to visit Sinnoh in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl, faithful remakes of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, which originally came out on the Nintendo DS system. Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl are planned to launch on Nintendo Switch later this year.

Get a closer look at these games at the official site.
