And we have no idea what could be Hoopaning.

The first Direct of the decade will be a Poké-chat.

A Pokémon Direct will air on Thursday (January 9) at 9:30 a.m. ET / 6:30 a.m. PT / 1430 UTC. The presentation will run for approximately 20 minutes.

All prior Pokémon announcements have focused on handheld or console games, but no other indication as to the content has been given.

It's about time for a new Mystery Dungeon game!

Pokémon House Arrest seems like a likely point of discussion. Or they could move on to their mobile stuff.

Pretty sure we were promised a sequel to Detective Pikachu at some point, so my high-end expectation is that.  I saw Sinnoh and "Diamond and Pearl" trending on twitter, but there's no chance that's happening this year.

My baseline expectations are info on Home and Sleep as well as some updates/events for SWSH.  I think it's about time to launch Home.

Outside of that, a Smash reveal could easily be squeezed in with a gen 8 Pokemon, but it's a tough sell as a paid DLC fighter, especially in the current pack.

My unrealistic hope is a Pokemon Snap sequel.

15 years after the 1st 2 games is a good time for a remake of the originals.

New expansion packs to Sword and Shield.
The Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra.  It also appears that there will be a free update of ways to obtain the pokes from the expansion packs.  It also looks like Pokémon Home will play a role with transferable pokemon that are in the Galar Dex with this new expansion.
