I could try to wake up to watch the announcement live at 6AM my time, but that could still be a bit tricky. It's always nice to have some good Pokemon news to wake up to first thing in the morning anyway.

Did they confirmed how we get the information? New youtube video, tweets or site update?

I think most are assuming it will be the same as for the last games. Site update + a trailer of the new information.

Last time the update was a couple minutes late as well. I don't think it's a reason to freak out lol.

Very strange that Solgaleo isn't fire at all. Did you see the new Rotom form?

DUUUUUUDE, Lunala's signature attack looks so awesome. I can't wait to play though! Ghost/Psychic, that is rough. 4x to ghost and dark, that is not cool...

Huh. Confirmation on Solgaleo/Lunala's names and types, confirmation of Kukui as the Professor, our rival's name, and the reveal of that Lillie girl. A bit more than I was expecting. Speaking of Lillie, the fact that she's described as a "Professor Kukui's mysterious assistant" rather than just "Professor Kukui's assistant" kinda makes me wonder about her involvement.

One last thing: take a good look at the protagonists' wrists. Mega Rings, perhaps?

Anyone noticed the diamond in the bracelet, it's like the Mega Bracelet but with the diamond in the logo!!!
Please GameFreak, let THE bracelets be Gen VII's Mega Ring and not some convoluted new mechanic.

Am I the only one that doesn't really trust Lillie at all?

I am hoping the other way around, lol. Do you also notice the Pokeball symbols on the PCs' hats are squares instead of round?

The official site says she's important to SM's story too, whereas Hau doesn't have a line saying that. So there's more to her for sure.

@Arcalargo; I don't think she's the team leader, but rather an agent sent to infiltrate Kukui's lab, either to steal or pass on information to the leader.
