Here are the highlights in the Pokémon Presents
The free-to-play MOBA game, Pokémon Unite is set to release on Android and iOS on September 22. If you’ve started on the Switch while waiting for your friends, don’t worry.

Next, the touch-based puzzle game, Pokémon Cafe Mix will be getting a major revamp for the Nintendo Switch renamed to Pokémon Café ReMix. The game will include brand new puzzle elements, more Pokémon, and excitingly new dress-up options. But, the best part about this update is that the Pokémon get to eat!
There will also be a remake version of the classic Pokémon Diamond and Pearl on the Nintendo Switch. According to the presentation, the remake will stay faithful to the originals. The Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl game which was originally came out on the Nintendo DS back in 2006 will see the return of the original mini games, including Pokémon Super Contests, The Underground with the dowsing and Secret Base.

Introducing Pokémon Legends: Arceus
Game Freak also introduced a brand new game known as Pokémon Legends: Arceus. It’s a definite variation on the battles we’re all familiar with. When the battles begin, players will have a few style options for battling in a turn-based fashion. No matter if it’s strength or agility, the situation will change the statistics based on specific moves. However, some Pokémon may can take a few turns in a row, based on their stats.
The turn-based mechanics in a Pokémon game definitely looks familiar, but the changes are as intriguing as ever.
There will also be four new Pokémon evolutions and variations coming to the game’s new Hisui region. They include Wyrdeer, Hisuian Growlithe, Hisuian Braviary, and Basculegion, a terrifying new evolution of Basculin.
