Nintendo Announces Pokemon Sun and Moon for 3DS

20 years later and we’re still trying to catch them all. Nintendo has announced that the quest to be the top trainer will continue with their new games coming to 3DS: Pokémon Sun and Moon. There have been a lot of Pokemon announcements lately with the reveal of the new Pokémon, Magearna. Pokémon Go is also still on the way and we have just received updated versions of Red, Blue and Yellow for the 3DS. Players who own copies of the remakes will be able to transfer any existing Pokémon over to Pokémon Sun and Moon making it so you can keep that beautiful Articuno it took so long to catch.

Though there is no news on what new Legendary Pokemon will be available if any or if there will be any new Pokémon added to the roster (though there almost certainly will), it will also be interesting to see how competitive Pokémon will change. If they add any new types or natures to give players more tactical options, the entire metagame might shift.

For those who have been playing since the early days of Pokémon, expect Nintendo to make this new installment to be a big one. With Pokemon turning 20 and Nintendo relying heavily on nostalgia to keep an audience, the aim will surely be to make this newest generation of games one that will capture a new audience while bringing back long-time fans of the franchise. Though no official release date has been set, fans should expect to see what lies ahead for Pokémon this year.
