I think it was both, but the point is that it wasn't the ex-Ubisoft guy. I'm also struggling to understand why there would be a press release in NYC... If you're going to inconvenience journalists, why the Japanese ones? Why does an indie developer need to be invited and how is talking about having Pokemon-related business not breaking his (supposed) NDA?

Yeah I agree with this. While I personally don’t think he’s lying or anything, a press event in NYC to reveal the games doesn’t make much sense logically and seems all around weird

Hmm!! Perhaps Gen 8 will have already been revealed and the press event will include additional information that won't be released publically just yet. He did mention the non disclosure agreements.

Didn't something like that happen when they demoed S/M? I'm talking about the time they called journalists to play the game.

Is there any chance they would throw a teaser in the Detective Pikachu trailer, or am I just grasping at straws? Maybe even just titles at the end?

The first trailer for Detective Pikachu hit close to 60 million views on YouTube, past reveal videos for X/Y & S/M haven’t even come close to that.

Wouldn't be weird at all. That's how they revealed Trevenant.

I don't think it would be best to advertise a new Pokemon in that style that Detective Pikachu has, but I tcan totally see them maybe having a poster or two in the background of a new Gen 8 Pokemon in the next Detective Pikachu trailer. I mean. the likelihood isn't high. But if they wanted to use Detective Pikachu to promote the games this would be a good way to start it.

What if Gen 8’s gimmick is Pokémon Armor? And Armored Mewtwo would be the tie in. Plus we would get Armored Mewtwo in game.
I would really hate to see armored Mewtwo shafted into some gimmick. =/ But I don't think this is any more likely to happen than Ash-Greninja becoming a mechanic outside of Battle Bond anyway.
