Just noticed that the game will be now available in Simplified and Traditional Chinese for the first time ever. Onward to the Pokémon world domination!

Though it does seem a bit depressing that even people can get salty over Sun and Moon... well, judging from another forum's reaction thread, that is.

Either way, well, I'm optimistic!

Well after watching the confirmation of these two games, one one thing comes to mind. They are Gen VII of Pokemon. Course it is still to early to tell which version I will be getting.

I'm pretty hype, though a bit of a gameplay trailer might've been nice. I'll probably get Sun, but it's a bit too early to say for certain.

I know one thing for certain, I'm catching a Pikachu on Pokemon Blue tomorrow and sending it through PokeBank to Sun. It's gonna be my Raichu :P

Judging from the concept art, it appears that our protagonist is going to look more like Red, but I wonder if the female protagonist will resemble Green/Leaf. I'll be waiting for GameXplain to do an analysis video on the trailer. With very little info about Sun & Moon, we may have to wait for next month's CoroCoro to get any info we desire.

5 minutes before the Pokemon Direct started, I grabbed my Flareon plush, I was hugging hard of pure excitement, my heart pounding fast.

As soon as I heard the confirmation of the games name (Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon) my mouth made a large smile from ear to ear! After seeing that it will be released this year, I hugged my Flareon plush even harder, smile harder and jumped in my room for a few minutes.

The short brief glance of the concept art looks awesome.

That girl standing next to him looks a lot like Serena a well and could possibly be the female Player Character. Maybe we'll be following an older version of the RGBY/FRLG player character exploring the region if you choose to play as a guy and an older version of Serena if you choose to play as a girl?

At least this was an easy summary to make considering we know next to nothing...

Still, we're getting a new game this year so I can't complain and we'll have more information soon enough.

Huh, I didn't notice this before. This would really be neat if this were to happen.

Even if there isn't that much info, which I already expected, I'm pretty happy that we got an announcement of the new games! Very interested when more stuff will be revealed throughout the upcoming few months.

I doubt it, that girl in the concept art looks like an NPC trainer.

Stunfisk probably welcomes death. I'd love to see a new generation too. There weren't many new additions in X/Y.

I guess? That still leaves the question of who the female Player Character is if it does turn out that the male Player Character is the one from RGBY/FRLG only older. I guess it could be the FRLG Player Character as well though that remains to be seen.

My interest in Pokemon has been waning since the poor show X and Y gave me, and my lack of true interest in Gen III. So I'm quite eager to move on from what I've perceived as a lackluster generation and go to something new. I hope that this generation will do better, and try to revolutionize the old and tired Pokemon formula by giving us something new. Whilst the trailer just basically tells me it's an anniversary celebration of the series, I still hope it introduces some interesting new concepts to frame all of this exploration of the series around.

Also, I like the names and logos, and find them to be pretty exciting in and of themselves.

I wonder what the trailer narrator meant when he said that Sun & Moon will "bring [all the games] together" or something to that effect. I mean, theoretically, each new game should be improving upon the best features of the last, so aren't they all in essence "bringing everything together?" I don't think a "game with all regions" is particularly feasible, so I'm intrigued as to whether that sentence has any particular meaning or if it's just some generic jargon.
