Pokémon Sword and Shield’s first expansion, Isle of Armor, will be released on Nintendo Switch Wednesday, but The Pokémon Company’s apparently got something else in store. On Tuesday morning, the company tweeted from the official Pokémon account that they’ve got Pokémon news to share — and they’ll share it on Wednesday morning. You can watch it here, in the YouTube embed above.

“We have Pokémon news,” it tweeted. “You want Pokémon news. Sounds to us like you should tune in tomorrow at 6 a.m. PDT for #PokemonPresents! What do you think, Trainers?”

Other that short message, details are scare. The tweet also included a link to the official Pokémon YouTube channel, where the Pokémon Presents stream will be broadcast Wednesday at 9 a.m. EDT/6 a.m. PDT.

Though it’s currently unclear what the stream will reveal, it’s notable that it’s the Isle of Armor launch day. It could be news about the first or second expansion, but there are other options, too. There’s been a lot of anticipation for Pokémon Sleep, which was announced last May. When it was announced, The Pokémon Company said it’ll be coming sometime in 2020, but there’s been little information on it since then.
