Update: Since writing this story, Nintendo have confirmed plans to broadcast a Pokémon Direct tomorrow morning.

Original Story: Hype for the Pokémon announcement previously teased for January 8th has begun to build.

Having first appeared at the tail end of a trailer, we’re now seeing teases across the entirety of the globe. The Pokémon Company in Germany have joined in, and the official Japanese Pokémon website in Japan has published the announcement on the homepage.

The official Pokémon Twitter account for North America has also joined in, writing “Pokémon fans, mark your calendars! Check on January 8th for some big news!”

So, this announcement appears to be a fairly significant one. Let’s see what’s announced tomorrow!
