Given they said it's shocking and a new story I fully expect it to be distribution details for Zeraora, the new Electric type coming up in the upcoming movie called Pokemon: Everyone's Story.

You've also got time zones to deal with, a reveal on Thursday in some regions means a June reveal for others which is different from what the rumours say. So it seems rather likely that no announcement today means no reveal in May.

I'm certain they are trolling too at this point.

You remember that exciting hour people spent watching some guy take a bath in a strangers house for some exciting Pokemon news for ORAS that did indeed confirm Groudon is in the game?

LOL That sounds brilliant!

@Octane Seems like they’re taking the approach of that January Nintendo Direct “announcement” where once they were aware that people were hungry for a Direct announcement and thought it would come on a particular date due to rumors (which were correct in that case), they just teased it through tweets and pictures.

@Octane Nah I don’t think that’s insignificant. If they showed Eevee entering the Pokémon direct room (which they expected only eagle eyed fans to notice, which are likely the same fans eager for news on the Switch games) it’s implying the Direct is very soon.

Though how long does it take to film a direct? Granted I don’t expect this to be longer than around 10 minutes or so, but it may still take a while. If they filmed starting from Tuesday morning (when the tweet was sent out it was Tuesday morning in Japan) it could be that the Direct is coming Wednesday or Thursday.

@Tsurii It works the way I mentioned too. Let's say it was Thursday and take the normal Direct time of 11pm UK time for example. That would mean it would be June for a lot of Europe and all of Japan, Australia, New Zealand, etc.

@Tsurii I was looking in general regarding a reveal before June as it may just be that the morning show talks about the movie and Zeraora.

@shadow-wolf Of course, but that's also assuming that the bipedal Eevee monstrosity is going to make an appearance during the Direct. They could've filmed it last week for all we know, but decided not to upload that photo until now. They could've taken the photo on a completely different day too. I don't think you should look too much into that, we simply don't know when that photo was taken, and provided a Direct is coming soon, when the Direct was filmed.

@Tsurii I’d wager it’d take more than an hour just to make sure everything is polished, but you’re right the speaking parts at least shouldn’t take more than a day.

@Octane That’s a good point. Just because they’re sending the picture now doesn’t mean they’re actually beginning to film the Direct — I don’t know why that didn’t come to me initially. All in all though I think it’s hinting at a Direct release this week. When the Direct eventually appears, I’d imagine it’d be on the level of the Sun and Moon trailer we got in May 2016, a good amount of info to know/confirm what the game is about but more info during Treehouse segments for E3.

@Octane Kind of a bold statement to make, right? I’m always afraid Game Freak looks at all of these rumors/leaks and decides to move their announcement date so that it looks like the rumors/leaks were incorrect.

@Tsurii You've got to remember, this is a large company too. Sure, a youtuber can make a video in about an a hour and post it.With Nintendo not only are you going to have to do those same things, but then you have to pass the video through other hands that have to okay the Direct. Who knows, maybe there is a specific team that each member has to do a different thing with the video. Sure, it might be a high priority but it still has to go through many hands before being shown.

I'd say you are correct though on making the Direct. A corporation has got to corporate.

Yeah, and apparently Emily Rogers sits outside of his office. When he gets to leave for said bathroom break, she looks into his eyes and sees the images burned into his retina. That is why she isn't always accurate

Pokemon UltraSoon and Pokemon VaporWare are going to be announced soon (at least, so they say). 10:00 Japan time, a 90-minute media event. The news will come out at 11:30 (a little over six hours from now).

Emily Rogers backed this user up.

Of course, a leak isn't complete with a cryptic Pixelpar hint, so here's #10 (i.e. 10am):

I won't be awake at that time, so I'll catch up with the news tomorrow, if there is any. Prepare for disappointment

@Octane Hmmm, four and a half hours away. Will be 8PM for me, I'll be up and watching for this news. If not I'll have family to distract me. PRIORITIES! Hahaha, just kidding guys... not really.
