Pokémon to Appear at E3 2016

Bob McFadden

Nintendo had previously publicly stated that they would only focus on showcasing Zelda at this year’s E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo), but today they surprised us all with an announcement that Pokémon GO will also be on display. New information about the smartphone app will be featured on Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3, with a special Pokémon GO developer Q&A which will be broadcast online live from Los Angeles, to begin at 9 a.m. MT on June 15.

Seeing as we are still expecting further beta expansions for Pokémon GO, it is unlikely that we will see a release date at this convention (less than two short weeks from now), but maybe we will get lucky. In either case, it will be a great opportunity to final see the first (intentionally) public gameplay for Pokémon GO, and be able to gauge the general reaction to it by a wide audience. The Q&A will also finally give a chance for some dialogue between Niantic and fans of the franchise.

Pokémon Sun & Moon will also be showcased at E3, and you can watch via live-stream as they broadcast the first live gameplay footage on June 14th. There is also word of an overall Pokémon Special at E3 2016 on Thursday, June 16th. This is coming up fast, and we are extremely excited to see any new information that comes from these presentations. Until then, be sure to check out Ben’s article about the most recent info aboutPokémon Sun and Moon.
