After Pokemon's conspicuous absence from last week's Nintendo Direct event, fans were bombarded with fresh footage of upcoming Switch games Tuesday as both Pokemon Legends: Arceus and Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl got new trailers.

The trailer for Pokemon Legends: Arceus reveals new Pokemon Kleavor, which is a new evolution of series mainstay Scyther, and also looks at the game's menus and character customization option. It comes out Jan. 28.

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl's trailer gives us a look at game mechanics like the app-filled Poketch, stat-increasing Poffins and relaxing Amity Square. 

These remakes of 2007 Nintendo DS adventures Diamond and Pearl arrive on Nov. 19.
