Pokemon Presents February 2022: Everything Announced During the Pokemon Day 2022 Celebration
Pokemon turns 26 today, and the Pokemon Company celebrated by sharing Pokemon Presents, which revealed, among other things, that the open-world Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are coming to Nintendo Switch in 2022. Pokemon Day 2022 also introduced new updates to Pokemon Legends: Arceus, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond, and Shining Pearl, to name a few. To make sure you don’t miss anything, we’ve compiled all the most important announcements below.
Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet announced for late 2022
Generation 9 will officially start later this year when Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet arrive on the Nintendo Switch in 2022. This open-world game, “in which various borderless cities seamlessly transition into the wilderness,” will be an “evolutionary” step for the Pokemon franchise. We’ve also been introduced to the new starter Pokémon, and they’re great. When the trainers set off on their journey, they will have to choose between Sprigatito the grass cat, Fuecoco the fire crocodile, or Quaxly the water duck.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus’ Daybreak Update (Version 1.1.0) will be released later today and will see trainers “investigating the mysterious massive outbreaks of Pokemon that are appearing across the HIsui region.” They will also be able to take on “powerful foes such as Legendary Pokémon and Guardians, adding even more options to the Pokémon battle experience.”
Players will also be able to receive 30 Ultra Balls, Gigaton Balls, and Jet Balls by entering the password ARCEUSADVENTURE in the Mystery Gifts menu until March 31, 2022.
