The Pokemon Company gave us their own version of a Direct today in the form of a ‘Pokemon Presents’ broadcast. The roughly 11-minute show had several announcements, with the biggest by far being the reveal of New Pokemon Snap, a new Nintendo Switch Pokemon Snap game that is currently under development.
While New Pokemon Snap stole the show, there were also multiple other cool reveals that are sure to hype Pokemon fans.
Below is a quick summary of each announcement:
Pokemon Smile: Brush together with Pokemon to save them from bacteria so you can catch them. A de-stressing app for kids to develop healthy habits. It is available now on iOS and Android.
