Since their announcement during the special Pokémon Nintendo Direct, fans haven’t gotten to hear much about Pokémon Sun and Moon. The glimpses shown during the announcement led to much speculation, and there has recently been a surge of fake “leaks” which you should be on the lookout for, but no more official information has come out.
However, while we can hope for more information sooner, it seems that new details will be revealed in a little under a month’s time.
CoroCoro is one of the biggest sources for news on Japanese games, so it’s a great place to look for new Pokémon details. According to Serebii, one of the biggest and most useful fan sites for the series, the latest edition of CoroCoro promises that the next issue will begin a series of special features on Pokémon Sun and Moon.
It also mentions some sort of “Pokémon Elections” that have something to do with the movies, so it sounds like this will be a big time for Pokémon, most likely in honor of the series’ 20th anniversary.
The next issue of CoroCoro will be available on April 15, so we should expect details to emerge sometime around then. It is likely Serebii will be among the first people to report anything new. Of course, information released by fan sites isn’t always accurate, and even Serebii has accidentally reported incorrect details in the past, but it’s still a good source for news.
It’s going to be a long wait until April 15, so try not to get fooled by the false leaks. Most recently, a website posted pictures of supposed magazine scans showing the male and female trainers for Pokémon Sun and Moon along with the three starter Pokémon. However, a close analysis of the dubious scans proved them to be fake.
We don’t know anything about the trainers, the starters, or much of anything else. The next time you see exciting Pokémon Sun and Moon news—and it’s especially tempting to believe “leaks” since the titles and logos were leaked ahead of the announcement—take a moment to consider that it might not be legitimate.
Nevertheless, April 15 should bring real Pokémon Sun and Moon news through CoroCoro, and we can’t wait to see what the new Pokémon generation has in store.
