UPDATE: The latest Nintendo Direct has confirmed the new generation of Pokémon is coming to 3DS consoles this year.
The only real information revealed was that Pokémon Sun and Moon will release at the same time and in seven different languages. There was no gameplay shown off, but some concept art was on display, hinting at a direction similar to X and Y. The games will support the Pokémon cloud system, meaning that Pokémon from previous instalments can be traded up to Sun and Moon, allowing for all 700+ pocket monsters to be trained and used!
