Players can catch Raikou in Pokemon Sleep in March 2024. Entei and Suicune will arrive after Raikou, but the month wasn’t announced.

Miraidon, Falinks, and Ceruledge are joining Pokémon Unite.

Pokémon Trading Card Game Pocket

A mobile version of Pokémon TCG is coming out this year. The main feature is that the players can open card packs by swiping across the top of them. The cards also have special effects, making the game more immersive than expected. The Pokémon Company states players can open two free booster packs daily, too. 

Pokémon Legends: Z-A

Perhaps the most exciting announcement of the presentation is the new Pokémon Legends: Z-A. It will be released worldwide on the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2025. 

We don’t know much about the game, as the trailer gives little information. We understand we’re heading to Lumiose City, which appeared in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. The urban development plan for the city is also supposed to be “a vision of beautiful coexistence between people and Pokémon.”
