From the announcement:

Nintendo and The Pokémon Company International have postponed the launch of Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter - two software applications that were originally scheduled to launch for Nintendo 3DS on Dec. 27 - due to a large volume of traffic to the Nintendo Network service. Due to the high traffic, players are having trouble setting up Nintendo Network IDs and downloading content in the Nintendo eShop on both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. We truly regret the inconvenience, and wish to reassure everyone that providing a solution is our top priority. We apologize for the delay and thank you for your continued patience.

Game Freak's official website has posted this strange image, accompanied by the text "This classic game played all over the world will be reborn from a surprise collaboration." While the horse-like image could be from Rare's Viva Piñata (To which Nintendo recently acquired the rights), the "collaboration" could possibly be with Pokémon, seeing as how it has played an important role in Game Freak's history, not to mention it's also "classic." All this is just speculation and the image may not have anything to do with Pokémon at all.

The days of Professor Sycamore have apparently come and gone (queue the outrage from the loyal fans, of course). Sycamore really got the people going with his long and dark, luscious locks:



It seems that the Pokemon Game Freak developers decided to further up the ante, and thus introduced Sun and Moon's very shirtless Professor Kukui:

Some might argue the dude's shirtless cause it's Hawaii, and the humidity's probably through the roof, but I'd have you refer to the present lab coat...Annd now the reactions:

Ah, what a grand day, indeed. We present, Solgaleo and Lunala, the two newest legendaries in the Pokémon universe. Solgaleo (as seen on left in picture above) will star in Pokémon Sun, and Lunala (right) in Pokémon Moon. Both look like they could deal out a massive whooping on lil Popplio. Here's the new trailer which features the legendaries, as well as new gameplay footage, and a look at the new Pokédex:



In Sun and Moon all players will get a Pokédex inhabited by the ghost-like Pokémon Rotom, who can possess/inhabit objects and machinery.

The Pokémon company said the following about the exciting new Rotom-Pokédex:

“It does much more than record Pokémon info—it sparkles with its own personality. The Rotom Pokédex shows your current location and your next destination, and it also gives you advice on where to go next, based on the conversations you have with others! It’s likely to be of great help to you in many parts of your adventure.”

Lastly, here's a detailed look at Aloha: the Hawaii-inspired region of Sun and Moon:

The images of a new Pokémon have been revealed by Jeux Video. This Pokémon is said to be the evolution of Amaura and is called Aurorus. Aurorus has a move called Freeze Dry, which is an Ice-type move which freezes the opponent but is said to be super effective against Water-type Pokémon. IGN have also revealed another new Pokémon called Tyrantrum.

According to an interview on Polygon, it has been stated that no Kalos Pokémon will have a Mega Evolution within Pokémon X & Y. Various details are coming in from impressions at the media briefing last week. Pokémon will gain EXP when a Pokémon is captured. The Pokémon Centers not only have the standard PokéMart, but will also have a place for you to change your outfit.
