Pokémon Arceus is the game that everybody wants more news on. We already have a release date, so now we're just waiting for more Pokémon Arceus news and gameplay. When can we expect more? We have an idea.
Notably, there was no Pokémon news at the Nintendo Direct during E3. That's kind of a big deal, because having Pokémon at E3 is tradition. Like family gatherings and uncomfortably drunk uncles or us promising our interns fair pay and then not doing it.
Wow, seems that broke the combo of main series Pokemon being at E3 every year there's a main series Pokemon game announced already from the past decade. 2013, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 all had it.— Joe Merrick (@JoeMerrick) June 15, 2021
Curious, I wonder what the situation is.
First of all: While this is weird and hasn't happened in a decade, calm your tatas everybody, Pokémon Arceus is not in development hell. We all got a release date a couple weeks ago... what could've gone wrong since? Gamefreak and Nintendo are not CDPR. Don't worry. Still, we feel you on wanting more news, and that's why you're here, so let's get to it:
When Will We Get More Pokémon Arceus News?
Don't put a gun to our heads over this, but our money is on October. More specifically, we expect to get a Pokémon Direct in October 2021. At this Pokémon Direct we then expect Gamefreak and Nintendo to give us some more deets on Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl as well as Pokémon Arceus.
Why October? Well, quick maths, my dudes: Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl are releasing on November 19, and we'd like to think that they wanna hype those games up shortly before we release. Thus, it's gotta be October and if it ain't, then expect that Pokémon Direct in early November with your Pokémon Arceus news and gameplay. That is a good buffer until January 28, when Pokémon Arceus actually releases.
