Everything you must know about what time the January 2020 Pokemon Direct starts and how to watch.

A lot of people have been predicting that a Nintendo Direct will take place this January 2020, and – while still possible – the company has instead only announced a Pokémon Direct so far for this month. It takes place today and in this article you’ll discover what time it starts and how to watch.

It was a good 2019 for Pokémon and Nintendo as the controversial Sword and Shield was the best-selling exclusive of the year and it resulted in an increase of sales for the Switch console in the United Kingdom.

A lot of people are naturally surprised that a Pokémon Direct is taking place so soon after the launch of Sword and Shield, but fans of the series aren’t complaining as there’s plenty to be featured including Home and Sleep.

What time is the January 2020 Pokémon Direct?

Pokémon Direct starts at 14:30 United Kingdom time on January 9th.

As for the United States, Nintendo’s sudden Pokémon Direct will commence at 06:30 PST and 09:30 EST.

The showcase will last 20-minutes to make it the longest Direct event dedicated to the series so far.
