It might be so. Hmm, why do I feel the déjà vu on the Direct's date? Must be Pokémon Sun/Moon announcements years back... Anyway, I hope they would give some tidbits on new Pokémon games on the Switch, along with some spin-offs if they wanted to.

    the biggest thing I'm hopeful about is that this may possibly lead to monthly news cycles as it did for SM prior to its release. the dry period must be super boring for those who weren't all that big into USUM and LGPE.

    Hopefully they'll hint at the region as well. Interesting to see where would Game Freak pick this time.

      Dear Arceus, please bestow upon us a Sinnoh remake, but Gen 8 would also be nice.

      The time is about right for a new generation reveal. The three Pokéballs are a notable sign. I'm cautiously optimistic.

        Logos, region name, starters, and maybe a picture of the map of the region, is my prediction.

          I'm really hoping this is finally Generation 8. Gen 7, while a neat concept, did not do anything for me to get my spirits back up for Pokemon in the same vein that say Generation 5 and 6 did. But if it's a remake, I wouldn't complain either. Just please... something interesting.

            As much as I'd love to see Gen 8, my hopes aren't very high. Chances are, they're just going to announce something on the lines of new content for the Let's Go games.

              Why would they just release another game for LG when they just did it a while ago? They've been planning the 2019 games for years now and always made sure to let fans know a core game is coming to the switch. For all we know LGPE are finished products. They've had updates but that's about it.

              What I'm trying to say is that they wouldn't NOT use Pokemon day for nothing. I think it's clear we're getting a new gen.

                As much as I feel like we're due for an old gen remake, I feel like if they're gonna announce new core games, that it's going to be a new gen because they'll want to put out the mindset of a new era on the switch

                Also if they announce B&W remakes (which is prob the least likely scenario since B&W2 already exist) I'll probably cry on the spot in joy

                it's not going to be a sinnoh remake.
                I won't get my hopes up, but I hope it's gen 8 starters/gen 8 game version reveal.

                  The three pokeballs are definitely making me think we're getting starter reveals. (along with a title drop and some random clips of the player running around. Also they'll probably show battles with old gen pokemon battling each other)

                  I don't expect us to just get a title drop, when Sun and Moon received a title drop we didn't officially know the gen even existed....that's not true in this case, so I think a title drop would be even more underwhelming than the previous title drop.

                  I'm expecting about 4-5 minutes of a "history of Pokemon" type video and then 2-3 minutes that zips through some gameplay footage and a reveal for the starters (similar to what we got for X & Y)

                  We MIGHT get a reveal for the mascot legends too, it's not that strange since we got both the starters and box legends for X & Y. I think Xerneas and Yveltal were shown off pretty quickly back then, probably about 15-20 seconds between them.

                  Even though I'd consider LGPE more like proof of concept games rather than ones in the mainline series, I just don't see them going to another remake as their next big title.

                  While I usually don't throw all my eggs in one basket, I think it's a pretty safe bet that we'll get a small tease of the new Gen 8 games, and we might even get a tentative date of Holiday 2019 (which is pretty much just code for the 3rd Friday of November, which would be the 15th this year). I'm not going to get too excited as there's a long way to go until then and a lot of stuff we still won't know for a long time, but it'll be nice to have our first bit of news since the Meltan reveal back in September.

                    I feel as if I’m gonna be asleep when this comes out but whatev. I’m really hoping that it’s gonna be gen8, instead of gen4 remakes. I may be the biggest gen4 fan on this site, but the remakes can wait until maybe next year or later, especially considering LGPE are kinda like gen1 remakes. Releaseing 2 remakes in a row seems really weird. Overall, here’s hoping it would be good.

                    always love the time between the announcement of a pokemon direct and the actual event. this is when the community becomes the most creative. still excited and quietly hoping for a mindblowing gen 8 :p

                      Hopefully it's gen 8, given it has been already hinted at last year while announcing LGPE with a 2019 release date, today it's the right time to show some of it. I hope it's a XY-style trailer with starters, legendaries, and a bit of gameplay - the latter would be very interesting, given that 3DS to Switch is probably the biggest single leap yet for Pokémon core series titles (and I don't consider LGPE with its simplified gameplay in a region that debuted in a 23-year-old game to be representative of this leap forward). Even without getting too much optimistic, there are many reasons to hope for fresh new ideas in the game formula, let's hope Game Freak can deliver.
