Fans have been speculating what will be announced for weeks now, with some industry insiders alleging that a remake of the 4th generation games — Diamond, Pearl and Platinum — will be coming this year. Others have surmised that The Pokémon Company may release a sequel to Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! games, which were extremely popular on the Nintendo Switch.

A select few have been hoping for sequels to Pokémon Sword and Shield, given that The Pokémon Company opted to release an Expansion Pass in place of a third title last year.
