"The press conference is expected to cover a number of topics of interest to Pokemon fans," the company said in a statement, which basically tells us nothing.

However, we're unlikely to get any new details about upcoming Pokemon Sword and Shield -- those Nintendo Switch games are getting their own Pokemon Direct announcement on June 4.
