Here's the link to the tweet from Nintendo of America: https://twitter.com/NintendoAmerica/status/702463689471864832
And here's the link to where the Pokemon Direct will be aired on the Nintendo Direct website: http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct/02-26-2016/
Again, I don't know if this is allowed, so I'm sorry if it's not and I can definitely delete it if it's not. But this is extremely exciting news!! The exciting part about it is that this is not just a normal Nintendo Direct, it is specifically a Pokemon Direct! If you didn't know, there has only been one other Nintendo Direct specifically geared toward Pokemon, aka a Pokemon Direct. This was back on 01/08/13 and was the announcement for Pokemon X and Y, the first time we saw Chespin, Fennekin, Froakie, Yveltal, and Xerneas!!
Needless to say, they clearly don't do Pokemon Directs very often at all and they wouldn't do one for no reason. It especially doesn't seem like they would do one simply to announce something that everyone already knows about, such as Pokemon Go, Pokken Tournament or any other side game. I am really hoping this means the next main series game will be announced!! At this point, my guess is that it would be "Pokemon Z" or whatever the next installment to gen 6 ends up being called. Plenty of people also think it will be Gen 7 but I just can't see that happening yet, especially since we don't have any gen 6 games that have all of the forms of Zygarde in it yet, nor has Volcanion been officially distributed. And I could even see them adding some more Pokemon to a new gen 6 installment since it had so little new Pokemon to begin with. I'm specifically thinking of Magiana here, I really do think it's going to be a new gen 6 Pokemon since it seems to be tied to Volcanion so much.
I could be wrong, of course, and it could end up being gen 7, or the Pokemon Direct may not end up announcing a new main series Pokemon game. However, with how little they do these and what it was about last time they had one, I simply can't see how this could go any other way!! I certainly felt like this was important enough to share with you all once I found out about it. I will unfortunately be at work when it comes out, though. xD Please share your thoughts on what it could be about, what you want it to be, etc.! :3
