The Pokémon Business hasn’t stated precisely what it’ll reveal throughout the video, however plenty are wishing for Pokémon Diamond and Pearl remakes — the next on the list to get the Nintendo Change treatment. Diamond and Pearl were initially launched in 2006 in Japan, however had a larger release in 2007. It’s the 15th anniversary of the video games this year, so a remake would be rather prompt.

On Saturday, which is Pokémon Day, Post Malone will heading a virtual show commemorating the franchise’s 25th anniversary, too. On Thursday, Post Malone launched a cover of Hootie and the Blowfish’s “Only Wanna Be With You,” remixed for Pokémon’s 25th anniversary. No, he didn’t change any words in the tune with Pokémon referrals, à la “I only wanna Pikachuuu,” however the tune’s support tracks absolutely seem like something you’d discover in a Pokémon video game.
