Pokemon Sun/Moon: Here's when next info will be revealed

Not much longer to wait to learn more about this year's entry in the series.

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.

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.


February 27 was the 20th anniversary of the Pokemon franchise's debut in Japan in 1996. To celebrate, Nintendo hosted a 24-hour animation live-stream event on Twitch, along with releasing classic Pokemon games Red, Blue and Yellow for the 3DS eShop.

The last Pokemon games in the series for 3DS were Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, which came out in November 2014. Pokemon Sun and Moon are scheduled to launch on November 18 in the US and on November 23 in Europe.
