The Pokémon Company has announced that new information about Pokémon Sword and Shield will be announced this Wednesday

It’s not clear if this will be another Pokémon Direct or something similar, or if they’ll just be releasing information as usual.

Since they’ve specifically announced a date and time, August 7 at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET, it seems more likely that it will be a video presentation.

(Who knows, though? Announcing announcements is popular, so maybe they just want to make sure everyone knows when the new information will be out.)

Many fans are hoping they will reverse their decision to not have the National Dex in Sword and Shield, but that doesn’t seem very likely. I expect they’ll continue as they have been, and reveal some new Pokémon and characters. Even though I think the true villains have already been shown, I wouldn’t be surprised if they reveal this generation’s evil team.

Are you looking forward to the new Pokémon Sword and Shield news on August 7, or do you think they’ve already revealed enough ahead of the game’s launch?
