Well... that happened.

February's Pokémon Presents showcase is now behind us and it was not the blockbuster stream of announcements that some were predicting. Instead, what we saw this time around was a much more subdued reel of news building up to some predicted trailers for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet DLC, The Hidden Treasure of Area Zero.

Coming off the back of the recent Nintendo Direct, this was always going to seem a slightly more low-key affair, but with little in the way of big news coming our way, Pokémon Day sure was a quieter one this year.

Below we have assembled a breakdown of each item that was touched on during the Pokémon Presents broadcast, including a trailer and individual news post where applicable.

Didn't have time to catch 'em all? We've got you covered!

A brand new card package based on the original Trading Card Game set is set to be revealed at the World Championships. The Pokémon Presents showcase gave a teaser of what the set will look like detailing a folding board, pristine copies of the original cards and multiple play pieces.

We have no firm release date for this one as of yet.

Pokémon Concierge

A new stop-motion animated series from The Pokémon Company is set to air on Netflix called Pokémon Concierge. We don't know much about this one just yet apart from what can be found in the above teaser — but just look at that little clay Psyduck!

On top of this, a Boss Rush event is now underway in the game and players can use the gift code 'POKEMONDAY' to redeem a free Gold Zacian Boost Emblem which has useful effects in battle.

Pokémon GO Integration

Links between Scarlet and Violet and Pokémon GO are now available. You can send postcards from the app to the console game and see Vivillon's pattern change as a consequence. Having done this, you will then be able to catch Roaming Form Gimmighoul in Pokémon GO with the chance to later evolve.

Pokémon HOME Integration

Integration between Scarlet and Violet and Pokémon HOME is planned for "early 2023", allowing you to easily transfer Pokémon between the games.
