Yes, we finally put an end to two months of speculation that had absolutely nothing to back it up. Hopefully it'll reveal something good.

It's been a while but we're finally getting something! Hopefully we get details on the starters and legends in some sort of 2 minute trailer similarly to the X&Y trailer.

Interestingly they fitted the times on the same day, unlike the announcement where it already the anniversary in Japan but not the rest of the world. Sadly it will happen at 5:00 a.m here. I wonder if they update the site at that time, or what, as it has yet to be revealed in what form the news will come.

Anyways the wait isn't long. Plus, there is a possibility that we'll have Corocoro leaks prior to the 10th.

I expect a game footage or the official arts of our mascot, possibly along our starters too.

We need a Fire/Fighting starter again, just to irritate the fandom! XD

We really need to see the starters of SM. I'm getting tired of the huge amount of clickbait videos on Youtube presenting fan artworks as if they're the starters of the upcoming Pokémon games.

Masuda is calling it "BIG NEWS". Interesting. We might get legendaries and starters.
I'm hoping at the very least we'll get the box legendaries. Starters would be nice though :)
My nightmare of a backlog. I have too many games and nothing to play.
Suggest new games or some I haven't finished/played yet on the list above

Can't wait for them to confirm that these games are on cartridges! But the image on the cartridges will be blurred out, I'm sure.

Don't worry, I jest. Somewhat. I'm actually not expecting a whole lot; there's a chance we may just get the mascots and that's it. Which will be great considering it's been, what, 3 months since the games' announcement with no info except that they will come with boxes? But it would still be basically the bare minimum to show only the mascots, and there's always a chance that they'll go for that. I'm hoping they don't decide to resurrect the "silhouette approach" right now.

That's likely my first thought. Starters and legendaries are the poster-children of the generation so it makes sense they are to be among the first new Pokemon revealed.

You know, I was watching a new video from a Pokemon YouTuber named Bird Keeper Toby where he showcases all the fake starter "leaks" we have seen so far and what he thinks of them. Something I did notice was the only ones he didn't talk were the set of starter pics that had white borders around them (similar to when the Unova starter evos were first leaked) which further fuels my suspicion those pics may end up being the real starters.

Those are confirmed to be fakes.
The artist admitted to it.

The thing is that I feel they heavily fit the description of the Japanese names (Mokuroh, Nyabby, Ashimari), and when the Unova starter evolutions were first leaked everyone thought they were fakes so you know, we could be thrown off again.

The other thing most of us dread is that the final designs may end up leaving us disappointed again.

Maybe the reason why we will get legendaries only, is because the starters don't have any hint in the last Corocoro.

So it's just a good dream to see starters, but most likely it's just the box reveal.

I don't see the point of "BIG NEWS" if it's only going to reveal something minimal like boxart.

It's not minimal, it's the big deal. 2 new legendaries are the big story here.
I can see the point considering they are the main attraction of the game, but if they're the only thing we get, I'll be kinda disappointed.

Their 'big reveals' as of late have been minimal, if not underwhelming. Volcanion, Magearna, Sun and Moon without much info.

Since they teased us with whited-out boxart last month, I'm very certain that we'll be having the official boxart and their mascot Pokemon revealed to us on the website. Along with the boxart, I'm also expecting them to give us a more definitive release date instead of just "Holiday/Winter 2016". As for any additional info beyond that, I'm hoping for starter Pokemon and MAYBE a trailer similar to XY's reveal trailer.

The thing is that I feel they heavily fit the description of the Japanese names (Mokuroh, Nyabby, Ashimari), and when the Unova starter evolutions were first leaked everyone thought they were fakes so you know, we could be thrown off again.

But the thing is, anybody that's smart enough can read and translate those "leaked" Japanese names and create fanart based on what they know of those names... and it doesn't help that we don't know if those names are real either, they are likely fake too. There's really no point in trying to debate on whether those ones are real or not, because of the fact that the artist has outright admitted they were fake.

Official boxart seems a given, so that means mascot legendaries as well. I wouldn't mind a trailer similar to what we got with X/Y, since it did showcase some graphics on what the overworld is like.

So you're also speculating that the "leaked" Japanese starter names may be fake as well. Now I feel like that Game Freak are going to set us up for even more disappointment when the actual reveal happens, to the point that I might not like any of the starters or new Pokemon and may not enjoy the game as much as I first imagined.

No wonder they are called Troll Freak, because lately I have been putting my expectations lower than ever before with all these "big scoops" that turn out to be extremely minimal and underwhelming. I've never been disappointed in most Pokemon games so if Sun & Moon end up being a letdown then I know that something is definitely wrong.

Also, Sun & Moon have been, at least to me the most difficult speculation I've ever gone through with a new Pokemon game given we had to go two whole months with absolutely nothing known.

So far I haven't felt super excited for these, but I think my hype will grow as we learn more about them. Looking forward to May 10th!

Kinda curious as to why the Japanese site is the only one that's got this announcement up right now. There's also no mention of other time zones for the news, whereas the Pokemon Direct we got back in February had listed all time zones for everybody. I wonder if it's going to be some sort of Japan-exclusive media other than Pokenchi and CoroCoro, but what else could that be?

EDIT: OH CRAP

They're preparing themselves.... PREPARE TO SCREAM LIKE WOOKIES.

They're just having people rewatch the old Direct, but that does seem like a preparation, refreshing people's minds after 2 1/2 months~ of no news.
