The 20th celebrations were packed with things not relating to video games, but even the games had a lot released on this year. Who can forget that this was the year Go! released, after all? The Mythical theme of the 20th celebrations was also a fun time, with each month being themed after a certain one, releasing not only the Lv100 'mon in the games, but also plushes and TCG celebration packs that included a pin badge of that 'mon (I've still got the ones I collected around somewhere). There was a lot of hype surrounding those celebrations.
Now the time has come again to repeat that. But how? In terms of the games, we know of New Pokémon Snap... and that's about it. But rumours of that Collection, if true, could certainly be used to start the year off with a bang. And unless there's a massive curveball being thrown and generation nine starts after just two years of generation eight, we can expect a remake or side series game to end the year. I also wonder if the Detective Pikachu sequel will release in that year. Outside of the games, a new movie is a given, and maybe another special TV series that'll maybe tie into the main series. And a lot of new merchandise, along with a special anniversary set with the logo on it.
No matter what happens, this is the thread where the latest news will get posted. First official news will probably come in January with an info blowout and the website.
