If the rumors are true of the switch pro and switch mini coming in 2019 what are the chances they will be revealed at e3.

To achieve something it takes more than practice it takes belief and confidence that you will succeed.

If such model(s) exist, they HAVE to be revealed at E3, IMO. Pokemon Sword and Shield will help move a lot of consoles, why not give the consumer a choice? Announce them at E3, maybe a release in the fall, and a month of "Ha, told you so!" or "I am so upset we didn't get X revision. Are they holding out for next year?" posts on Nintendo forums across the internet. Why do the announcement on a Direct when E3 is coming up and has so much attention on it already?

Not unless if the new models are being released in July or August! If they were announced at E3 and released in fall or winter, that would be a big gap where there would be a lull in console sales (not a good look for investors). Plus I don't believe Nintendo has ever announced a revision at E3 (For Example DS Lite and DSi were announced at press conferences and the New 3DS was in a Direct)

Where am I going! Nowhere, unless if I say otherwise!

If the hype is real then E3 would be the most logical time and place. Microsoft and Sony are expected to have announcements around then too.

Hopefully, but there's no guarantee.

Nintendo might keep that genie bottled until MS or Sony reveal their plans for Xbox Scarlet and PS5.

I think it'll depend how Nintendo does E3 this year. As we've seen from the Direct era of Nintendo, hardware reveals can happen anytime:
3DS XL - Direct a few weeks after E3 2012
2DS - Press release in August 2013
New 3DS/New 3DS XL - August 2014 Direct for Japan, February 2015 Direct for NA/EU
Switch - Reveal trailer in October 2016, followed up by full reveal at January 2017 live event
New 2DS XL - Reveal trailer in April 2017

So I only think it'll be revealed at E3 if Nintendo returns back to a live show this year (don't see why they would though), otherwise I think it'll be revealed before E3 in a similar way to the New 3DS.

Anywhere between 0 and 100% guarantee.

It kinda makes sense to release new revisions since PS5 and Xbox Scarlet are around the corner. Maybe make the switch more powerful for third parties to jump even more on board. Basically make it better compete with the other two. I'm actually waiting to see what happens before I get a switch at this moment.

It’s a possibility

The original Switch has many design flaws. I didn't believe Nintendo when they insisted that they weren't planning any hardware revision. They lied to keep selling the current model like they did with the 3DS new models and when they delayed the New 3DS to sell the 3DS stock (they admitted so).

As soon as the last stock is shipped they will launch the new models, that would be announced with very little anticipation to keep selling the older model. They could announce them at E3 or release a video like they sometimes do.

This E3 will be interesting because most gamers are expecting news about the next-generation consoles by Microsoft and Sony and news about the new Switch models. Microsoft and Sony won't launch new consoles this year except One and PS4 revisions (Xbox One S All-Digital, a new Pro...), but it's likely that Nintendo will release new Switch models at short notice. If this happens, Switch will be lagging behind again in a few years and will have to focus on first-party releases.
