Pokemon Moon and Sun Are Confirmed. Coming Later This Year.

The logos leaked yesterday, but the games have officially been confirmed this morning during the Pokemon Direct. Unfortunately, Nintendo had nothing to show us from the next installment other than some concept art. We don’t know if Pokemon will take place in space or not, since there was no setting shown either. Nintendo will have more information on the next Pokemon games as the year progresses.

Pre-orders for Pokemon Sun and Moon have already been opened from the following retailers:

This will be the first brand new entry to the series since Pokemon X & Y in 2013. Check out the trailer above.

Could New Pokemon Games Be Announced Soon?

Two logos for what are being called Pokemon Moon and Pokemon Sun have been discovered today in the European Union’s  trademark database. With accompanying logos and not just names of the games, this very well may be what Nintendo will announce during tomorrows Nintendo Direct Pokemon special.

With this small bit of information, could Pokemon be going to space? If so, this could be a very cool change in scenery. If not space then each game will for sure revolve around one Pokemon that gets its power from the moon and the other from the sun. Be sure to tune in to the Nintendo Direct Pokemon special tomorrow at 10am Eastern to find out.
