Pokemon Day 2022 is almost here, and The Pokemon Company is planning to celebrate the occasion by presenting six days of Pokemon announcements leading up to the big event on February 27.
As reported by Serebii.net, the schedule of events was shared by the Japanese Pokemon Twitter account, and each day's announcement is based on a different game or Pokemon-themed media. The full schedule is as follows;
- February 21: Pokemon Masters EX
- February 22: Pokemon Sword and Shield
- February 23: Pokemon Cafe ReMix
- February 24: Pokemon Unite
- February 25: P25 Music – Music VIdeo for Reconnect by Yaffle
- February 26: Pokemon GO
- February 27: Pokemon Day 2022
Some of the announcements have already been revealed or teased, including that Pokemon Sword and Shield will be getting a new Raid event that will see Gigantamax Venusaur, Charizard, and Blastoise as Raid Bosses.
Pokemon Masters EX will add May & Latias as a Sync Pair from February 28 and there will be an event called Victory Road that will feature the Champions in-game. Pokemon Unite will have a special event challenge that will let players unlock the Gardening Style Holowear for Slowbro. Pokemon Cafe Remix will get a new feature called Deliveries, and more.
As for Pokemon GO, February 26 also happens to be the start of Pokemon GO Tour: Johto, which will put a focus on Trainers catching Pokemon from Gen 2.
While none of these sound like major announcements, there is always a chance there will be further surprises as we get closer to Pokemon Day 2022. It's also important to note that Pokemon Legends: Arceus and Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are absent from this list, meaning they may be due for big news during Pokemon Day.
Fans looking to get some merch to celebrate Pokemon Day will also be happy to know that the Pokemon Center store will have new products throughout the week, including custom skateboards from Bear Walker.
