So, Trademark registrations for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon have been found, together with logos. Domain registrations have also been found, so it seems we already know what will be revealed in in the Pokémon Direct in a few hours. Last week, Masuda tweeted an image of the moon saying it was out at the same time as the sun, and some people are saying we should have seen this coming.
Junichi Masuda said:
The Sun is still out, but the Moon is big, bright, and shining!! The birds are also tweeting. (Laughs)
Yeah, Sun and Moon. Way to ripoff Digimon, GameFreak.

Also, in a previous Pokémon interview, "flowers" was given as a clue for the franchise in 2016. ShinyXatu from PokéJungle said this probably refers to flowers following the sun and the moon.
(By the way, I joked in a PokéJungle comment that this meant the third game was Pokémon AZ with Eternal Flower Floette as the mascot and mentioned how Complete Zygarde's body slightly resembles an "A".)

Okay, I intended to post a thread about Magearna a few days ago, but I didn't finish writing the first post, so I'll modify it, and merge the discussion here.

So, a new Pokémon named Magearna was revealed and it'll appear in this year's movie. Magearna is the Artificial Pokémon and was made by human hands 500 years ago.


Now, this Pokémon is dividing the fandom: Will we have a Generation 7 now or a Generation 6.5? Zygarde has new forms, but no new game revealed.


One thing people noticed is that Magearna's body apprently can fold into a Pokéball-like shape, so there's theories we'll find it in the Pokéball Factory in the next game. The synopsis for the movie mentios Magearna was made in Azoth Kingdom, and Project AZOTH is one of the mysteries of Gen6, and as such, many people think it's intrinsecally connected to G6. People were speculating about Pokémon Z having new Pokémon, and there was even a fake leak list from 4chan. I at least hope the Dragon Eeveelution (Dorahhia, 770) really happens, so we have too Eeveelutions in Kalos. Anyway, this idea seems strange for some, because they never had Pokémon of a Generation being completely incompatible with games of the same Generation, but ORAS gave us moves incompatible to XY, which was never done before, so I guess everything is possible now.

Then SM (Sailor Moon) was leaked. Now there's a discussion of whether this is an entire new Gen or a sequel to Kalos. Some believe this is a GSC situation where we'll get to visit Kalos after the new region, and it's somehow conencted to Kalos, perhaps the region Kalos was in war with 3000 years ago.
One thing I noticed was that the logos are orange and light blue, the non-Kalos colors in Complete Zygarde's chest. This guy also posted a theory, but Lando the HoennChamp has put a more detailed diagram. So, the new game is likely somehow G6.5 or what a G2 situation would be if it was done nowadays.

Another interesting theory.
Thoughts?
Also, the Mysterious Souvenir is totally going to be tradeable for this game, which means it's probably compatible with G6, and the Hiker is totally from this new region.

We'll probably see the trailer in a few hours.

I'm pretty sure Gamefreak isn't ripping on Dawn and Dusk with Sun and Moon (so tired of people crying foul when anything remotely similar happens between games/movies/etc.). Sun Vs. Moon is not an uncommon opposing pairing. Heck, I've used Sun Vs. Moon in multiple things I've written for fun/designed in the past.

I'm really hoping these are going to be the next generation of games, though. I would love to have pokemon with a solar/lunar theme. Heck I'd love the story to revolve around the sun and moon! Maybe we'll have a more major shift in certain pokemon being found during the day or night. Or maybe pokemon having different appearances depending on if you find them during the day or night!!

If it turns out to be the legit 7th generation titles, I WILL be getting Pokemon Moon. ^0^ Moon symbolism is awesome and I'm excited to play a pokemon game with moon theme!

So they went from colors, to metals, to gemstones, to more gemstones, back to colors, to letters and now celestial bodies? I can dig it

I think I'll be getting Moon too, since Digimon Dusk was my first Digimon game I ever played, so I figure it'd be fitting :)

I really hope they have a luna moth-based Pokemon, those are my favorite insects.

I was joking.

I'm sceptical about this. Those logos are not japanese.
They were found on the European database. Also, http://www.pokemon-sunmoon.com , http://www.pokemon-sun.com , and http://www.pokemon-moon.com are all registered domains that redirect to http://www.pokemon.com . Did we ever have unofficial names redirecting to the official site?

EDIT: Forgot to say. From the logos I think the Moon legendary is a bat. Any idea what the Sun one could be? I can only think of porcupine or a knight's shield, but do porcupines have any association with the Sun in any culture?

Very exciting! Considering the amount of time between generations and the release of the new gear-based legendary that wasn't in the XY game data, it's not surprising we're up to Gen VII. No Pokemon Z, though, that surprised me.

Maybe Solrock and Lunatone will get evolutions, or, probably more likely, mega evolutions.

At first look I thought Magearna was another Diancie form.

I'm really excited to see where they go with the lore in Sun and Moon just based on the name alone and the 20th anniversary. Maybe they'll explain where Clefairy came from? I have fond memories of the mysteries of Pokemon and Clefairy. I'll definitively be getting the Moon version.

Apparently no one will be getting Pokemon Sun. lol
I usually lean towards whichever is the "Red" version, so Sun it is for me. Assuming I'm even remotely interested by the time it's out.

As it is I'm feeling very indifferent towards this announcement. Lately I've been falling out of love with Pokemon in general. Maybe I'll feel different by the time it comes out. If it ends up like Black & White where it doesn't really do enough to stand out from its predecessor on the same console, I'll probably skip it.

As I've done for the past decade, I'll get both games at once! Whether I play Sun or Moon first depends largely on the legendaries and version exclusives (though that doesn't mean much in the age of GTS and Wonder Trade).
