Well, with Pokemon Day coming up, it does make sense to use the attention to try to sell the game that is already out, too. I wouldn't take it too much to heart just yet.

These pokemon videos of every region are looking sooo random, it has to mean something.

About the rumours, I like the Egypt one, it could work if they don't come up with too much sand. Also, I didn't follow the begging of the season, that first rumour about a big island with mythological snakes was completely proven to be fake?

Either we get the pokemon direct announcement in the next 20 hours, or it's not gonna be revealed before May.
I don't think that Gen 8 will be announced in May. That would mean that there is not a lot of new content in these games, because that's where expansion games and remakes are typically announced.

It's currently 9:05am in Japan on Monday. Its after 4pm here where I'm at still on Sunday.

If we get an announcement for an announcement itll be tomorrow sometime. Dont expect anything today.
What time jp do they usually announce pokemon directs? Why is it out of question for today?

I don't think no announcement this week means it has to be announced in May, but if there's no announcement this week, I'm probably entering "it happens when it happens mode"
Yep, I think it’ll be the most reasonable approach.

waiting till may to reveal anything is a bad move imo. I'm not saying this 'cause I want a reveal sooner personally, but I feel like the pre-release hype for a new generation is an event just as exciting as the actual launch. The speculation, discussions, etc, it just feels like a good time for the franchise and fanbase in terms of activity. By waiting till May to show anything, it sort of ruins that

Also I've seen multiple people on this thread say may. Is there a reason people jump to may or is it random? Is it because of the detective pikachu movie or something? Just doesn't make sense for me for people to randomly guess we'll get a reveal far after we ever have so there must be a reason

Probably the idea that the game trailer would be advertised in movie theaters, or alongside promotional ads w/the movie, which seems pretty logical.

May is historically a month where we get big info drops for the series. For new generations, May gave us

-first look at gen 5 starters
- trainer artwork, region details for gen 6
-first look at gameplay, legendaries, starters for gen 7

then we've had multiple 3rd version/remake/sequel reveals in May as well

Pretty sure it is partly due to the film, partly because Sun and Moon didn't pick up until May (but then they made up for the slow start with an unnecessary constant flow so probably better balanced if they start sooner rather than later).

may? that's far later than they've ever done for a new gen. it'll almost definitely be revealed before then.
I just dont know...
LGPE was announced in May
Pokemon Ultra Sun was announced in June.
Pokemon Sun/Moon only got logo reveals in February. Actual first reveal was in May.
Pokemon ORAS was also May.

Granted, most of those are remakes/third versions, but still, thats been the trend for the last few years.

Remakes/third versions do traditionally get announced later, so they can ultimately be disregarded.
