Pokemon Sun/Moon: Here's When Next Info Will Be Revealed

Circle June 2 on your calendar.


After announcing Pokemon Sun and Moon's release date and revealing the starting creatures this month, The Pokemon Company has now confirmed when it will share even more information about the 3DS game.

Writing on Twitter (via Siliconera), the company said more details will be shared on June 2. There is no word yet on what will be divulged, but whatever the case, we'll bring you the news as it's announced.

The starting Pokemon for Sun and Moon are Rowlet, a flying grass type; Litten, a fire type; and Popplio, a water type. You can see them all in action in the video above.

As previously announced, Sun and Moon will offer traditional and simplified Chinese as language options, which is a first for the series. Both games will also come with Pokemon Bank support, allowing players to move Pokemon wirelessly from Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow, as well as Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, X, and Y, to Sun and Moon.

Further details on how this works are available here.
