Pokemon Day 2020 is Bringing New Mythical Pokemon to Sword and Shield

There will be some other special events for Sword and Shield plus the two Pokemon mobile titles as well.

February 27 is officially Pokemon day — so official, it’s even recognized by the Japan Anniversary Association. Last year, we got the Pokemon Sword and Shield reveal Direct during the celebration of all things Pokemon. This year, we’re getting a brand-new legendary/mythical Pokemon added to Sword and Shield, plus some other goodies besides.

What this brand-new legendary Pokemon will be hasn’t been revealed. Game Freak is continuing its trend of not teasing and revealing absolutely everything beforehand, so we’ll just have to wait until February 27 to find out. Whatever it is, it will also be the star of this summer’s Pokemon film.

Sword and Shield are also getting a special Max Raid event, and some events are planned for Pokemon mobile games, including Pokemon GO and Pokemon Masters.

All this plus the rollout of Pokemon GO‘s Battle League should be enough to tide us over until the first part of the Pokemon Sword and Shield DLC expansion, the Isle of Armor, releases this June, with its new-old Pokemon and brand-new open-world areas to explore.

The full announcement can be seen here. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Pokemon news as it pops up.
