We’re just days away from the 27th of February, the 20th anniversary of Pokémon, and hype levels have been increasing for many thanks to the re-release of Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow on the same day. Suddenly there’s another reason to hype however – a Nintendo Direct has just been announced for the 26th/27th, and it’s exclusively about Pokémon – a Pokémon Direct!
It will be held this Friday 26th at 15:00 UTC/16:00 CET/10:00 EST/07:00 PDT, or for Australians who live in the future, Saturday 27th at 02:00 AEDT. Fittingly, this Direct occurs in Japan right on the anniversary, or the 27th, 00:00 JST.
What will the content be? We just don’t know, beyond that it will (obviously) be Pokémon themed. Maybe it’d just be a tribute to the long history of Pokémon, and give some spotlight to the Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow re-release, along with Pokkén next month. But such an announcement will surely get people excited about information on a new game potentially appearing as well, especially as previous Pokémon Directs talked about new games, like Pokémon X&Y. What we do know is that the Direct will last 5 minutes. That’s not very long at all for a Direct.

What are your expectations, and will you watch the Direct regardless of what time it may begin for you?
