Now Playing: Pokemon Sun/Moon Battle Royale Mode Stage Demo at E3 2016 at E3 2016

There is no word yet on what the focus of this new reveal will be, but possibilities include new Pokemon or details on features and functionality.

Earlier this week, Nintendo revealed six new Pokemon for Sun/Moon, including one called Mimikyu, who can disguise itself as another creature. We also learned about what's changing with the Pokemon Global Link service and what players can expect in terms of online modes.

Additionally, The Pokemon Company announced a Hyper Training function that players can use to increase a Pokemon's power beyond Level 100. This is a first for the Pokemon franchise.

Pokemon Sun/Moon is due to launch on November 18 in the US and November 23 in the UK. At E3 2016, we learned about a new free-for-all battle mode and also got a peek at some awesome-looking 3DS models, one of which features Sun/Moon's Legendaries on it.
