A couple of trademarks have been spotted that could very well be the names of Nintendo's next Pokemon games.
Two trademark registrations, one for Pokemon Moon, and one for Pokemon Sun, have appeared on the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market's website (spotted by Nerdleaks). The trademarks are also accompanied by logos which you can see below.
Yesterday, Nintendo announced it would be holding a five minute long Pokemon Direct on Friday, February 26, at 7am PT. If these trademarks are real, expect Sun and Moon to be officially announced then.
Watched the Direct right now. People are expressing joy, some lewd stuff because of the abbreviation.
I did have a question. The Pokemon Bank - they just mentioned Red, Yellow, and Blue can transfer there. What about the past generations. I felt weird that the first gen games are transferable. They are pretty old despite being on eshop. That is kind of confusing.
Folks speculate the games' regions are Singapore based.
Taka: That was a shock to me too for the Virtual Console versions of R/B/Y to be compatible for Pokemon Bank as well. As for past gens besides that, Pokemon Bank can only go back as far as the Gen 5 games.
Also, the Mega Solrock/Lunatone jokes were inbound just like that one you just posted. XD
Master Menos, Taka, We need more Mega Solrock and Lunatone jokes! Bring out the Soul Eater cards lol.
Tbh i wonder if, given the setting of this time's names, pokemon will finally go into space. I mean they have in the series confirmed pokemons from space with Deoxys and Clefairy, i am wondering when they'll finally get to space. Still i'll see which game we'll get when it comes out, depends a bit on how the legendaries look like. But given what i'm expecting i'll likely be going for Moon.
Haven't played Pokemon in years. Only played as far as the Gold/ Silver generation.
I made it from Red/Blue/Yellow to Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald over the years (not counting Pokemon Stadium, Pokemon Stadium 2, Pokemon Colosseum, Pokemon: Trading Card Game, Hey You, Pikachu!, and Pokemon Snap that I also played). Once the series jumped over to the DS I gave up on the games due to not getting a DS in order to keep playing.
However, I might get a 3DS later this year in order to replay Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow and transfer my Gen. 1 Pokemon over to Pokemon Sun and Moon!
In light of the 20th anniversary of Pokemon, there is another give away, Celebi. Unlike last month for Mew, this one doesn't do cards at Gamestop. (Thank GOD!). It's for X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire.
Taka: As for anime business, I'll work on the Spring 2020 anime stuff this weekend. I will finish up the Winter 2020 banners. My apologies. I thought I will out of work due to the virus outbreak. I'm glad I'm still working at the pharmacy

Dream: Looks like California and New York are now enforcing all non-essential workers to stay home, except for necessary needs and all public gatherings are banned, at least in New York. New York's are in effect Sunday.
Mar 20, 2020 16:16:17 GMT
Dream: Far as essential workers go, the following are in the category to my knowledge: retail, pharmacies, warehouses, food suppliers, medical offices, transport, emergency personnel, banks, media. May be some differences in what is considered essential...
Mar 20, 2020 17:27:04 GMT
Dream: ...dependent on state or localities. But basically, anything that is a major need for everyday living is considered essential.

Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:24 GMT
Dream: ...to the 2000s series.
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:30 GMT
Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.
Mar 22, 2020 0:33:35 GMT
Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.
Mar 22, 2020 21:25:15 GMT
Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.

Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.
Mar 27, 2020 17:48:40 GMT
Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.
Mar 29, 2020 0:47:15 GMT
CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.

El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.
Mar 29, 2020 21:52:25 GMT
Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
