Pok?mon Sun and Pok?mon Moon Arrive in Late 2016!

For 20 years, Pok?mon has delighted millions of fans of all ages and has become one of the most successful entertainment brands in the world. During today?s Pok?mon Direct presentation, Tsunekazu Ishihara, president and CEO of The Pok?mon Company, announced Pok?mon Sun and Pok?mon Moon, the newest additions to a legendary series that has sold more than 275 million video games since the debut of Pok?mon Red and Pok?mon Green in 1996 for the Game Boy system in Japan. Developed by GAME FREAK inc., Pok?mon Sun and Pok?mon Moon will be launching late 2016 exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems and, for the first time, will offer Traditional and Simplified Chinese as language options.

?The Pok?mon core series games are the centre of the Pok?mon universe and provide some of the most memorable Pok?mon moments for our fans,? said J.C. Smith, senior director of Consumer Marketing at The Pok?mon Company International. ?I can?t wait to see what fans think of the new adventures they?ll find in Pok?mon Sun and Pok?mon Moon.?

Pok?mon Sun and Pok?mon Moon will also have Pok?mon Bank functionality. This online storage application will make it possible for fans to move Pok?mon wirelessly from Pok?mon Red, Pok?mon Blue, and Pok?mon Yellow, which come to the Virtual Console on Nintendo 3DS on February 27, to Pok?mon Sun and Pok?mon Moon. Pok?mon from Pok?mon Omega Ruby, Pok?mon Alpha Sapphire, Pok?mon X, and Pok?mon Y can also be transferred to Pok?mon Sun and Pok?mon Moon through Pok?mon Bank.
