The Pokemon Company officially announces the intention to reveal more information for its forthcoming Nintendo 3DS titles, Pokemon Sun and Moon, next month.
According to a tweet from The Pokemon Company on its official Japanese Twitter account, it plans on revealing more details for Pokemon Sun and Moon next month on June 2. However, the marketer and property manager for the long-running franchise didn’t provide any specific ideas as to what would be divulged for Pokemon Sun and Moon in the coming weeks.
The announcement is following the trend of what looks to be a slow eking out of information for the two games, as a similar proclamation of forthcoming news from developer Game Freak comparably promised details about a couple of weeks ago. Nevertheless, when the details did eventually make their way to various publications online, it was pretty significant, as the studio not only disclosed Pokemon Sun and Moon‘s release date, but also revealed the games’ starters and legendaries.
So far, we know that Pokemon Sun and Moon‘s initial creature choices will be a fire-type kitten called Litten, a water-type sea lion named Popplio, and a grass and flying–type owl dubbed Rowlet. Plus, the region for the games have been revealed as well, as Pokemon is seemingly putting its own spin on Hawaii with the backdrop being called Alola, which confirms the previous thoughts of the forthcoming titles having a tropical setting.
After being announced with a trailer several months ago, Pokemon Sun and Moon fans have been clamoring for any and all particulars they can get their hands on, but unfortunately, with the games’ having a release date later this fall, specifics are relatively scant as developers are surely still working on Sun and Moon. Of course, that doesn’t mean all of the lowdown for the titles will come through official channels, as the Japanese gaming publication CoroCoro leaked a brand new never before seen monster that could make its way into the games.
In the meantime, though, all we can do is wait until The Pokemon Company gives everyone the scoop on what else is planned for Pokemon Sun and Moon, and speculate to our hearts’ content. If everything revealed thus far is any indication of the news to come, then fans of the franchise are sure to be in for quite the exciting surprise.
