Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will be released on the Nintendo Switch later this year
The other important piece of news is that Pokémon Legends: Arceus, which was only recently released earlier this year, will receive a software update dubbed “daybreak” in the near future. It will be available for download for free later today and will include a new investigation quest. The Pokémon Company also revealed that it will be producing an animated series set in the Hisui region of the game, which will premiere later this year and will follow the adventures of the titular character.
A major upgrade to Pokémon Go was also announced as part of the event, with monsters from the Alola area — which first appeared in Pokémon Sun and Moon — being added to the game starting on March 1st. In addition, the competitive fighting game Pokémon Unite will be receiving some major new features, including new, more furious encounters known as “fury battles,” which will be available starting today in beta. As an added bonus, players who log in now will receive limited-edition Pokémon Day clothing to wear while playing the game.
