February 26, 2016 Nintendo Direct Recap

An unusually short Nintendo Direct had aired recently and it was all about Pokemon this time. I'm betting you all were thinking it would focus around Pokken Tournament or Great Detective Pikachu. I'm also betting a few of you were hoping for Pokemon Z, but nope. This direct actually had some new information that hadn't been officially revealed yet.

To celebrate the Pokemon series 20th Anniversary in Japan, Nintendo announced that the 7th generation Pokemon games, titled Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon, were in development and would be released by the holiday season of 2016. In addition to this, they also revealed that the eShop versions of Pokemon Red Version, Pokemon Blue Version, and Pokemon Yellow Version would be compatible with Pokemon Bank so you could transfer the pokemon you trained in those games to Sun and Moon when they're released. Here's hoping for a great new addition to the Pokemon series, but until then, I'll be seeing you.
