Pokémon Sun & Pokémon Moon confirmed!

Pokemon Sun & Moon — 26 February, 2016

The two games we reported on yesterday have now been confirmed by Nintendo during the latest Pokémon Direct. They are named Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. However, no footage of the games was shown, so very little is known as yet. The games will be released in late 2016.

The only new feature mentioned was that the Chinese language will be added to the language selection screen alongside the current 7 options.

The Direct also talked about Pokémon Red/Blue/Yellow which are being released on 3DS Virtual Console tomorrow, and stated that they will be compatible with Pokémon Bank! This means that Pokémon caught in the classic games will be able to be traded to newer games.

Update: full trailer and screenshots below, including a new Pokémon!
