Sure, Pokémon Day 2022 is on February 27. But The Pokémon Company doesn’t care, as it has a whole week of announcements in the lead up to the big day. Each day will cover a different announcement pertaining to an already released Pokémon game. It looks like there’s lots of news to come.
You can check out all the announcements below. We already have news for updates to Pokémon Masters EX, Pokémon Sword & Shield, Pokémon Café ReMix, and Pokémon Unite. We’re still waiting on news for P25 Music on Friday and Pokémon Go on Saturday. Then Sunday is the big day, Pokémon Day 2022. This is clearly a big week for any Pokémon diehard (i.e. everyone in the office but me…).
Still, who knows what big news Pokémon Day 2022 will bring? If they’ve got this much to announce beforehand, there’s probably a lot going on. To get the lowdown on the latest Pokémon game, check out our Pokémon Legends: Arceus review to see what we thought.
When is Pokémon Day 2022?
The big Pokémon Day 2022 celebration kicks off this week, but the day itself is on February 27. You can check out everything announced below.
