Pokémon Worlds Championship

The Pokémon Company

The stream led with an update on the Pokémon Worlds Championship taking place in Yokohama, Japan this weekend. Shoutout to anyone who’s able to make it out there, because I get FOMO every year watching it from afar. The company will also be hosting the Pokémon Trainer Cruise, an event on a cruise ship where people attending Worlds can gather on the vessel to play, trade, and vibe. It seems they learned nothing from the S. S. Anne episode of the anime, in which a ship of Pokémon trainers sank down to the sea.

Pokémon: Path to Peak

The Pokémon Company is putting out a new animation called Pokémon: Path to Peak, which will follow a Trading Card Game player and premiere ahead of the Worlds Championship tournament.

Detective Pikachu Returns

The Pokémon Company

Next up was a lengthy trailer for Detective Pikachu Returns, the upcoming adventure game sequel coming to Switch on October 6. The first game on 3DS rules and you should absolutely play it, so I’m looking forward to the sequel, even though it looks like a slightly upressed 3DS game.

Pokémon Sleep

Pokémon Sleep is getting a Good Sleep Day event that increases Drowsy Power that will occur on nights with a full moon.

Pokémon: Paldean Winds

The Pokémon Company

Ahead of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet’s DLC, a new digital anime called Paldean Winds is launching on September 6. It follows students of the Paldea academy as they figure out their place in the world. Pokémon’s digital anime series are quietly some of the best things to come out of the series, so I’m looking forward to these.

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet Gets Mew And More

The Pokémon Company

And finally, the headlining event was Scarlet and Violet updates. The games are getting a Mew and Mewtwo event, with a Mystery Gift drop to get Mew and a Tera Raid boss fight to capture Mewtwo. Mew is available now, and the Mewtwo raid will run from September 1 to 17.
