A new post on Reset Era claims the Pokemon Switch (allegedly called Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee) Reveal will be taking place at 10am JST on May 30th / 2am UK / 6pm PT (May 29th), with the news to follow at 11:30am JST on May 30th.
According to the post, it’s not a direct and instead it will be a media event which will last for 90 minutes.
Emily Rogers, a credible leaker, gave her input on this post. She mentions, “King Zell has been on a roll today.” As you can see, she’s quite clearly backing up King Zell’s statement.

Furthermore, Pixelpar tweeted an image of the Pokemon Card Caterpie. When looking into this in more detail we realised that Caterpie was ironically #10 in the Pokedex. This is another hint that the Pokemon Switch Reveal Event will be taking place at 10am JST.
In addition, with a huge amount of reports via other credible leakers suggesting a Pokemon Switch Reveal was coming at end of May it gives fans even more reason to believe these claims. However, we shouldn’t get too far ahead of ourselves just yet as Gaming INTEL are not sure on whether these rumors are entirely true. Until we hear an official announcement you shouldn’t 100% trust these rumors.

Alongside these rumors, we also received a tip suggesting the next instalment in the Pokemon franchise will feature gyms. While this may have come as an inevitability to some, this is in fact the first time the addition had been confirmed by a reliable source.
If this is taking place, as of yet, there is currently no livestream we are aware of.
UPDATE: Eurogamer have just tweeted this, could this be a possible reference?
Huh. We’re in Japan tonight.
