Official Pre-Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield Speculation & Leaks thread

Not open for further replies.
Wow, that's really interesting. I can't imagine why it would need to be done so close together & not in one go.. maybe there's a direct in the middle or something? Is the time period right?
That's what I assume, especially if they plan to change their online service in a way while showing it in the direct. From what I can see, they are most likely preparing for the direct to be tomorrow since the maintenance time seem to be stating Pacific Time. I assume that they would code the changes, but not activate them until after they state them in the direct.
Yes :) :) :) It would seem that 35 minutes is more than enough time to include something!!

Now the only uncertainly (about Directs) is whether something within this main Direct will announce a Pokemon Direct, however, maybe it doesn't make sense to them this time to in essence keep many general Nintendo fans from seeing and enjoying some sort of trailer by making it separate!
Especially, it might make sense now that Pokemon is on the same system as all other games?
I knew a Direct was coming the second I saw those two maintenance periods being so close together.
Also, yay, the 3DS is finally dead! All development resources can finally go to the Switch!
Hoping that there will be some kind of announcement for the Pokémon Direct in this general Direct so we won't have to speculate about dates anymore. They could end the presentation by revealing the date of the Pokémon Direct.
Never cared about nintendo directs, a pass for me.
well at least the next direct would be the real thing - pokemon direct.
