    Unless you've been living under a rock for the past two days (or, you know, just happened to miss the news), you know that The Pokémon Company International just held a press conference where they announced a bunch of new stuff they have planned for the franchise. Among the new stuff coming out is:
    • Pokémon Home: a new smart phone app that connects with the various Pokémon games and Pokémon Bank to transfer Pokémon between different games easily.
    • Pokémon Sleep: A new mobile game that measures your sleep or something. Snorlax Approved!
    • A second Detective Pikachu being released for the Switch. Got to capitalize on that new movie, right?
    • Pokémon Masters: A new mobile gacha game where you team up with various characters from all the (main series) games.
    • Also they're apparently releasing a new line of shirts or something? I missed that part.
    So, what did you think of the press conference? Are you excited for any of these upcoming games/apps? Were you expecting something else?

    Funny they finally announce a Pokémon gacha game for phones--I had brainstormed an idea for a gacha game that twisted the show a la Final Fantasy Record Keeper. I am intrigued about Pokémon Masters though.

    Bold of TPC to assume any of us actually sleep in the first place.

    Guess who totally forgot to watch the press conference? But anyway, my thoughts:
    Home: good. I would definitely use it if I had Bank or Let’s Go or Sword/Shield.
    Sleep: not gonna lie, it’s a little weird, but I think people (including myself) will eventually warm up to it. Also I really wanna sleep with a Ferrothorn (that’s a joke)
    Masters: good as well. I’ll probably download it when it comes out and see what it’s like.
    Detective Pikachu for Switch: I wonder if this has anything to do with the success of the movie...?
    Shirt thing: I didn’t hear much about it. So no reaction.
    (Also I heard that some people were mad that there was no Sword/Shield news...? We’re y really expecting any news then there’s a Direct next week?)

    I Did As It Happens To Me.

    By The Way, I 'Never See Sleep Coming' (Yes, I Know I Must Need To Use Persona 5 Reference Here.) I Swear It Will Be Helpful To My Insomnia.

    As For Master, I Already Knew The Game Had Been Confirmed Long Before The Announcement But I Never Saw The Popular Trainers Coming To Master!


    They Already Told Us That There Will Be No Sword/Shield Update On The Conference. In Fact, There Will Be A Pokémon Direct For It Next Week.

    Pokémon Sleep is worth it just for the memes. I'm interested to see how it will work. Finally, a game that I could be among the best players at.

    The shirts look pretty nice but they're so pricey.

    Word. So hard. D:

    Like, I get it. They're high-quality shirts for adults by default, and those can be pretty pricey, plus they're custom designs on top of that (which def adds to the cost). But, like. TPC, you're placing a lot of faith in our ability to be productive enough members of society to just be able to part with $100 for a shirt we can't even wear to the office without fear of the ensuing questions. :')
