#REDIRECT [[Pokémon Presents]]
'''Pokémon Presents''' is the current name used for the periodical presentations from [[The Pokémon Company]], in which news and updates about the Pokémon franchise are shared. Originally, news about upcoming events, updates and games was shared via the {{DL|Wii|Nintendo Channel}} on the [[Wii]] and Nintendo Video on [[Nintendo 3DS]]. In 2011, [[Nintendo]] launched their '''Nintendo Direct''' series, which provided news via pre-recorded video presentations. An offshoot of this, titled '''Pokémon Direct''', began in 2013 and along with occasional live press conferences this format continued until 2020, when it was replaced by the Pokémon Presents format.
 
 
 
This article lists all of these Pokémon presentations, and the major announcments made at each of them.
