Pokemon-Sun-and-MoonYesterday, new trademarks were discovered for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, along with logos for said games. This prompted rumors that those would be the newest Pokémon games.

In today’s special Pokémon Nintendo Direct, the rumors were confirmed. Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will be released in the holiday 2016 season.

We know next to nothing about them, except their names and that they’ll be compatible with Pokémon Bank (as will the Virtual Console releases of Red, Blue, and Yellow).

This seems to crush any chance of a Pokémon Z, which gives us two Pokémon generations in a row with no third version (although Black and White received direct sequels).

Despite my love for Pokémon Black and White, I wasn’t a big fan of Pokémon X and Y, so I can’t say I’m disappointed.

I look forward to seeing more from Pokémon Sun and Moon! What are your hopes for the newest Pokémon games? Sun and Moon, hmm… perhaps the story will involve OUTER SPACE!

  1. It could involve outer space in the way that Diamond and Pearl involved mining minerals in the underground… Hm…
