New Pokemon Presents showcase scheduled for February 27

Fans can look forward to “about 20 minutes of exciting Pokémon news” during the upcoming live stream event.

Pokemon fans have reason to celebrate before the month ends as the Poke-filled equivalent of a Nintendo Direct will be happening on February 27.

We're hoping the English dub release date for the final episodes of Pokémon Journeys: The Series will be announced on February 27.

Pokemon Day is an annual celebration of all things, well, Pokemon. For this year's event, the Pokemon Company guarantees "about 20 minutes of exciting Pokémon news" in a livestreamed event.

Unfortunately, The Pokemon Company stopped short of confirming the contents of Monday's Pokemon Presents showcase. However, it's all but guaranteed that the likes of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, as well as Pokemon Go and Unite, will be a part of the event.

Fingers crossed, Pokemon Sleep will finally be making an appearance, although we don't think that's happening soon if at all.

Something we speculate will be mentioned at the upcoming Pokemon Presents event is the infusion of both Game Boy and Game Boy Advance games to Nintendo Switch Online. The most obvious additions are the GBA-exclusive titles, Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire, which will celebrate their 20th anniversary sometime next month. If we're lucky, Nintendo will add Pokemon Emerald too.

Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire are turning 20 in North America next month.

In any case, this week has been quite fruitful for Nintendo fans. Just recently, Microsoft confirmed its "legally-binding" deal to bring Call of Duty to Nintendo platforms. Finally, there are reports that suggest that a new Switch bundle is coming for Mario Day, March 10.
