Pokemon Sun and Moon coming late 2016

Pokemon Sun and Moon coming late 2016

Great news for all Pokemon fans out there! 

The newest installments of the now classic Pokemon will hit shelves later this year, promising new features and an advanced connecting system to trade and play on your 3DS with characters from all previous versions. 

The Virtual Console versions of the original Pokemon games will now allow for Pokemon transfers. In other words, Pokemon caught or traded in Red, Yellow, and Blue versions on the 3DS Virtual Console will be transferable to new iterations of the games, including Sun and Moon, via the Pokebank.

Transfers from Gameboy to Gameboy Advance and higher were not previously available. While this means the Mewtwo of your childhood will remain forever encased in the plastic prison of your original Gameboy cart, you can now recapture and train one to bring into the modern era.

Pokemon Sun and Moon are scheduled to release "Holiday 2016," but further details like new legendaries or evolution possibilities weren't mentioned during the brief Pokemon Direct.

I sure can't wait for this!
