It's honestly quite ridiculous!

Here's the news from the Pokémon Direct:

  • Players will be able to choose 1 of 7 languages to play the game (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, or Korean).

  • The new Player Search System (PSS) will allow players to search for others globally (via Wi-Fi) to trade or battle.

  • Skrelp is a Poison/Water type Pokémon. Clauncher is a Water type Pokémon.

  • Pokémon-Amie will have some kind of beneficial effect in battle.

  • Horde encounters were announced. 5 vs. 1 battles! Hordes are meant to balance difficulty and keep people from capturing a powerful Pokémon in the wild and breezing through.

  • A new Fire/Flying type Pokémon named Talonflame is seen in a new Sky Battle. Haunter is also used, so Pokémon with levitate will also work.

  • Other Pokémon will be rideable.

  • A recap video will be posted tomorrow.

This morning's Pokémon direct announced the arrival of a new set of Pokémon games coming to 3DS later this year. The games will be available in Japanese, English, Italian, Korean, Spanish, French, German, and both Simplified and Traditional Chinese.

The presentation also announced that the recently re-released Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow for 3DS will utilize the Pokémon Bank, allowing players to transfer their Gen 1 Pokémon into Sun and Moon.


Edit: an earlier version of this post identified Sun and Moon as generation 7, which has not been confirmed by the Pokémon Company, but it will definitely feature "a new world, new Pokémon, and new adventures" according to the official site.
