Eight minutes long... Hm.

A Diamond/Pearl remake would be more interesting than a third version of Sun/Moon. But I'm not even going to pretend to say that I know what this will be. It could just be spin-offs.

I'm really hoping for a new version of Sun/Moon more than anything else.

Diamond/Pearl remake does not agree with me.

Considering it's a Direct, and ORAS didn't get its own, that should mean it's bigger than a remake or third version.

I hate to say it but this does sound like Stars. The last 3 times they've had a Pokémon Direct it was major, franchise changing news. 2 of them were announcements for new generations and 1 of them was to announce Bank. I can't think of anything they could announce on that scale besides a main series Switch game.

Whatever the case though, they will almost certainly announce a new main game. Pokken Tournament Switch isn't nearly a big enough reveal to warrant its own Direct, that's something they could save for E3.

A very sleepy me was made wide awake when she saw news of a Pokemon direct.

The questioning side of me thinks it might be a direct about a few of their current, or upcoming spinoff games. Like mentioned it could be Pokken for the Switch, or Gold/Silver/Crystal being brought to the virtual console. I would not be made about announcement of GSC on the VC though, I'd love to play through Crystal again

My more hopeful side though is really hoping for a new main series game, announced for some time at the end of the year. I don't care if it's on the switch or on the 3DS, I just want to see a new game. I adored Sun and Moon when they came out, so I would love to see it's third version soon, on the switch or not on the switch.

I think my money is still going to go on a Sinnoh remake though, with all the hints in Sun and Moon, plus the hints in the upcoming movie that could be in there to promote the new Sinnoh games. I would be really happy for this, as I haven't played those games yet, and it would be awesome if I could first experience them in amazing 3D graphics

(EDIT: I really condensed this post down).

As Long as It's NOT about the Poke-Land Mobile game; I'LL BE SATISFIED;

I Hope it's one of these:
A. Pokemon Stars/Eclipse, aka 3RD Game for Sun/Moon, the 1st one of THOSE since Platnium was done 3 Generations ago, in Gen IV
B. Pokken Tournament DX for Nintendo Switch
C. Pokemon Temporal Diamond & Celestial Pearl
D. Pokemon Gen II Virtual Console Ports of Gold, Silver & Crystal

Anything, Just As Long as It isn't the Mobile game based off of Pokemon Rumble!!

OMG I'm so excited. I wonder what it is about.
I don't think it will be about DP remakes. It's too early and I don't think a direct would be needed for a remake, ORAS didn't get a direct. A completely new gen? Making this the shortest yet (~2 years) a switch version of Sun Moon? Can't wait

I Just hope it's NOT All Dedicated to Poke-Land, the Pokemon Rumble Styled Game for Mobile Devices; that would be a HUGE Letdown!! WHY SHOULD A MOBILE GAME GET 8 MINUTES WORTH OF DIRECT!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

The Gladion, we have to take this as a grain of salt because it is from 4chan, 4chan did leak some of leaks for Sun/Moon, though they got some of the leaks wrong, so I wouldn't my hypes on that, until it's 100% true. But right now, it's just a rumor.

According to leak information posted on PokeJungle (i'm taking this with a huge grain of salt), Gyms will return and trials will no longer be in the game.

Yay for gyms, but I actually like Trials, just don't think they should be the sole main focus of the game in terms of replacing gyms.

As I read somewhere (could have been in this very thread) - watch for trademark filings as the day progresses. That can be a big clue in itself.

  • Characters are called Kaosu and Hoshi
Hoshi () is a Japanese word which means star. It is also a surname. Hoshi (干し or 乾し) is an unrelated word meaning "dried." Hoshi (保志) is a Japanese surname with a similar pronunciation.

Kaosu doesn't have as direct of a translation, however I'm going to go with "Comet"

Hoshi I think is more of a reference to Sun than Star specifically, and Kaosu is more of a reference to Moon than comet, as Kaosu I think means "lifeless mass"
