Opening with an old school Game Boy and nostalgic music from the original games, the 2/26/16 Pokemon Direct started with a look back at the origins of Pokemon. We were then treated to a video celebrating 20 years of Pokemon, with the announcement of Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon at the end. Arriving holiday 2016, with a worldwide release, Pokemon Sun and Moon will be adding Traditional and Simplified Chinese to the 7 languages already available. More news will be added as we get closer to the release date! Catch the whole Pokemon Direct below:
Available tomorrow on the 3ds eShop, Pokemon Yellow, Blue, and Red will be available as games on the virtual console. These games will be able to use the Pokemon bank to bring your Pokemon to Sun and Moon!
