Pokémon has just announced that fans should expect a brand-new trailer tomorrow, September 7th, on the official Pokémon YouTube channel. The trailer will release at 6 AM pacific time. Here’s the full statement, which links to the channel, but remains vague for now:

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have already revealed quite a bit about the upcoming mechanics, features and world. All of the changes have sounded like a beautiful blend of the best elements in Pokémon Legends: Arceus and classic installments of the franchise.

That includes the addition of co-op gameplay, which has somehow been limited to the likes of Let’s Go despite the introduction of open world mechanics.

However, some of the changes have proven a little disappointing and even divisive among fans. While many of the ideas from recent Pokémon games have been incredible, the execution hasn’t always been up to par.

For example, there was an immediate backlash about how the Gym leaders will work in Scarlet, because they need proper scaling to represent real freedom. Chances are, the trailer tomorrow will elaborate a little more on how some of these systems will work, and hopefully it’ll ease skeptical minds.

Either way, it’s the Pokémon themselves that are the star of the show. Every time Pokémon Scarlet has shown off a new Pokémon, it’s basically broken the internet. Just like LeChonk, the cutest pig since the poogies in Monster Hunter.

Then there was an enormous campaign and lead-up to Grafaiai, which got a lot of views, but not quite as much love:

Tomorrow’s trailer is almost certain to add more regional variations on existing Pokémon, as well as a couple of new additions. It’s an easy to way to earn more favor without addressing some of the issues, and so far, the designs have been pretty great. But hopefully, there’ll be a bit more about actual gameplay, despite the many prior reveals.
