So, who else expects a Nintendo Direct dedicated to Pokémon this coming week (28th May - 1st June)?
Reactions to the leaks/rumors have been... interesting. I'm curious to see how everyone will react once we have some actual official information about the game.

I don't see what's so bad about leaks. They do a nice job of maintaining hype, and they're easily ignored if you don't like them. The only bad thing is that they can ruin some surprises.

@LossyQuote I've been expecting a direct this week or next ever since Pokemon was announced with a 2018+ release date. It is their usual timing anyways.

From what I have read that tweet has been done before. It is basically telling you to get some rest. So I wouldn't expect anything.

I wasn't sure where else to post this, but, I have a spare a Dialga/Palkia code and it expires shortly (there could be a mere few minutes/hours left). Let me know if you've successfully used it. The code is compatible with all Gen VII games and can only be used once. The code is from Australia if that means anything, but I assume that it would be compatible with European copies as well, if not worldwide.

@Tsurii don't get your hopes up. Early morning Japan specific shows have never shown anything of significance when it comes to Pokémon. They sometimes show 5 more seconds of gameplay than what has been shown in a trailer, but as far as I recall they have never revealed new Pokémon, areas or mechanics.

Even if they have announced significant information previously it would be ludicrous to announce a highly anticipated Pokémon game for Switch on a children's show at 7 in the morning in Japan only.

We could of course get a direct tomorrow, and the show could just recap that info to relay it to kids who might not follow directs online.

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?

@YummyHappyPills Ugh, don't remind me. Biggest waste of an hour in my entire life.

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.

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.
