Pokémon Presents: Coverage of the August 8 presentation

Join us for live coverage of the Pokémon Presents information; we realize not everyone is going to be able to watch the video as it airs, so please refresh this article to check for updates after it begins to air at 9 AM ET / 8 AM CT / 6 AM PT.

Mewtwo is expected to be involved because of the purple tease when the Presents was announced and a Nintendo Switch Online ad also advertised a Mewtwo Tera Raid Battle, somewhat ruining one of the surprises we’re almost sure to see.
