San Diego Comic-Con has become about so much more than comics in recent years, as many movies and TV studios use the annual event as a platform to promote their upcoming projects. This year’s event was no different, with Marvel and DC in particular showcasing a ton of their movie and TV lineups for the next year or so. Actually attending Comic-Con is a bewildering, claustrophobic event given how massive and overcrowded it’s become and it’s gotten to the point where it’s almost as bad just trying to keep up with all the announcements that get reported over the event’s four day period. While the following list certainly doesn’t cover every cool thing that happened, these are the 20 best trailers, announcements, and other big news stories to come out of SDCC 2016.
20. New Pokemon Go Announcements
It’s actually kind of surprising that Pokemon Go had as big of a presence at Comic-Con as it did, as even though the game is insanely popular, it’s only been out for about three weeks at this point. Nintendo/Niantic’s new mobile app had its own panel and everything, where the developers revealed what their plans for the next year or so are. In short, Pokemon Go will be getting a whole bunch of new Pokemon, the ability to trade with other players, the introduction of Pokemon Centers, and Pokestop Customization. This was definitely the right time to make this sort of announcement, as players will likely start falling off quick if the game’s current endgame problems aren’t addressed soon.
