January 2020 Pokémon Direct Predictions

After the direct I came here to mark up and grade my predictions. I did not at all change the text (I did not even fix my typos) just the formatting. Things I got explicitly wrong will be struck through and Red and the more specific things I got correct will be highlighted. Given I said nothing about additions to or DLC for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield I did not do a great job predicting this direct. I did get that a Mystery Dungeon would be announced, but the release date I was pretty far off on. The things I got right were mostly things they would not be talking about. While I also brought up many things that were not discussed at all thus getting a lot wrong. If I were to grade myself I would give my predictions a D+ grade, so not very good. Here is the original article:

To build on what I said in my post last night I wanted to make some predictions for the imminent Pokémon Direct (January 9th 2020). After the direct

First of all I wanted to reiterate the things I do not expect to see:
  • No Mainline Pokémon Game will be announced
    • To be more specific no Diamond Pearl Remakes
    • To elaborate none will come out this year, Game Freak will take 2020 off from releasing a mainline game
  • Nothing related to Pokken will be announced
    • No sequel and no DLC
  • Pokémon Masters will not  have any announcements
    • The game may be brought up but nothing new about it will be revealed
Now for what I expect to see:
  • Full Pokémon Home details revealed
    • Mini games for super training Pokémon
    • Pokémon Refresh Lite for some Pokémon
    • Trading and Item Collection Mechanics
    • No Battling within the App
    • Launch February 2020
  • Pokémon Sleep and Pokémon Go Plus details
  • Pokémon Detective Pikachu Sequel for Switch officially revealed with trailer
    • Ryan Reynolds voices Pikachu in the fully Voice Acted game
    • Will include ways to either play through or watch the events of the first game
    • Spring 2020 Release
  • New Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Siwtch Game teased for release mid to late 2020
In about 10 minutes we will begin to see how I have done!
