Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Tera Raid Battle Events
Mighty Venusaur, Might Blastiose and a returning Mighty Charizard will each have a Tera Raid event. Mighty Venusaur's week begins tomorrow February 28th until March 5th, Mighty Blastoise is from March 6th until the 12th, and finally Mighty Charizard starts March 13th and ends on the 17th. As Mighty Charizard was available in a previous event plus you can own only one of each, you cannot catch Mighty Charizard again if you caught it last time, but can still earn the rewards for participating.

Pokémon Sleep
Raikou, Entei and Suicune are coming to Pokémon Sleep, Raikou is set for March and the other two will follow after. You can also claim a gift of 10 Poké Biscuits and 1,000 Diamonds by logging in. The Gift distribution period will last to April 30th 18:59 UTC.

Pokémon Masters EX

Also the photo creator mode is coming, complete an in-game event before March 31st for the chance to have Riley & Lucario join your team and log in right away to receive a gift of 3,000 gems!

Pokémon Café Remix
Complete puzzles for Gimmighoul coins, choose between Sprigatito, Fuecoco, Quaxly in special chef outfits to add to your café staff, join bingo events for a chance to also add Koraidon or Miraidon to your staff.

Pokémon Unite
Miraidon, Falinks and Ceruledge join the fray. A special event where you can earn the Miraidon's Unite license is under way today until March 23rd. Falinks is due for April, Ceruledge later.

Pokémon Trading Card Game Pocket
A new digital way of experiencing Pokémon TCG on your phone. Collect and open packs for chances to get them shiny cards! Viewing on your phone allows you to move the card around for a 3D like effect or jump into the illustration of the Pokémon itself for a more immersive feel. Also play Quick Battles to see if your chosen deck can come out on top. Open two packs a day at no additional cost.

Pokémon Legends Z-A
The Pokémon Company revealed the next Pokémon Legends which looks to be set in the Kalos region, and will be released next year, 2025.


Well that was fun thinking the TCG game was the final thing when the chat was commenting on how much time was left and then they squeezed in that final announcement. No remake exactly though this time like most people were thinking it would be. More of a short and sweet Direct than last year's which was 25 minutes long as opposed to this 12 minute Direct. Wonder if Z-A will give improvements or add to the Legends gameplay style.

Only curious about the Pokémon Legends: Z-A so just checked out the trailer for that. Definitely takes place in the same region as X/Y does, and the Z is clearly for Zygarde. I don't know off the top of my head what the A is standing for though. Hmm

Edit: I closed the video when the logo appeared stupidly thinking there was nothing after it and completely missed the reveal that Mega evolutions are coming back. I wonder if we'll get any new ones or if it'll just be the same lineup XY had.

Also shoutout to Gen 5 just being ignored for any remake or new entry in favour of skipping right from Gen 4 to Gen 6. ROFL

I think Gen 5 remakes will still be on the way eventually. Maybe not this year or next year, but I'd say I'd be surprised if we didn't hear about Gen 5 Remakes by 2026.

I'm definitely down for another Legends game though. Granted I still have to go back and actually finish Legends Arceus, but they definitely laid down the foundation for something great and I hope to see them build on that instead of taking a big step back like they have been with the main Pokemon games for a while now.

I hope that if this game does well, they'll be more motivated to continue the Legends series further and some day we might see a Legends game taking place in Jhoto.

So I thought Pokémon Legends Z-A was two separate versions of PLZ and PLA, but turns out I just misinterpreted the wording at the end of the trailer. LOL

Having thought on the trailer longer, I think we might go forward in time for this game instead of backwards like Arceus did. The official Nintendo account posted on social media that the game takes place entirely within Lumiose City, and there's no way the version from XY is enough to support a whole game; furthermore, the trailer having a tech/digital aesthetic screams of futuristic. I'd say we go into the future and assist with expanding Lumiose City.
The game taking place only in a city should also mean performance for the game is better, because draw distances and rendered objects can be limited by buildings blocking sight views. It'd be cool if the game could implement a feature similar to Splatoon where the city is inhabited by the avatars of other players who can display messages, because the city hub areas in the Splatoon games are awesome and I love that aspect of them.

I'm thinking A is meaning AZ the King who created the ultimate weapon after all. Maybe we'll get more context as to why.

That's not from XY is it? If it is I don't recall it. Unsure

Also, I stupidly thought there were two versions of this new game; Pokémon Legends Z and Pokémon Legends A. Granted, it wouldn't have changed my question had I realized at the time. Sweat

Anyone reckon PLZ-A will be a cross-gen title that comes out for Switch and as a launch title for the Switch 2? If I'm not mistaken it's the only Nintendo game with a 2025 release date, and they have a track record of putting the swan song game of their current console as the launch title of their next one.

I definitely think this could be a cross-gen launch, but also, Pokemon has been known to skip initial console launches in favor of working on something that will "better showcase the new hardware". Black and White 2 (released on DS when 3DS came out) are good examples of that, and perhaps FireRed/LeafGreen (I know those were 2004 releases but I can't recall if they launched right after the other).
