In today's Pokémon Direct, Game Freak have officially announced Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, confirming the reveal of the trademarks yesterday. As well as confirming that we weren't all fooled yesterday, we've learned that Sun and Moon will be released in late 2016 on the Nintendo 3DS. The games will be released in Traditional and Simplified Chinese, as well as the other seven languages from XY and ORAS.
Alongside the official existence of Pokémon Sun and Moon, Game Freak also revealed that the Pokémon Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow re-releases on 3DS will be able to transfer Pokémon into Pokémon Bank, and then into Sun and Moon.
We've captured some of the in-development artwork briefly shown in the trailer for you to investigate below. Among the things we spotted were a new Pokemon Centre design, vehicle designs (which is intriguing as vehicles have never really featured in the games to the point where we'd expect a lot of design work on them), a look at what may be the new male Protagonist and some settings in the game as well as what seems to be a sneak peek at a new bird Pokemon.
