Early morning reveal is rising with the sun

New information about Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will be revealed on May 10, producer Junichi Masuda confirmed. The reveal is planned for 8 a.m. PT., and Masuda's teasing that it's "big news to everyone in the world."

Several official Pokémon Twitter accounts retweeted Masuda's announcement, including the North American one. In a blog post, Masuda neglected to say whether the news would come in the form of a livestream and offered no further hints.

Regardless, it's the first time fans will learn more about Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon since they were announced for a worldwide holiday release. The Pokémon Company revealed the logos and release date for the Nintendo 3DS games in February, after a trademark application hinted that they were the next titles in the franchise.

In April, Masuda appeared on a Japanese television show to debut what was teased as a new look at the next Pokémon games. Instead, he showed off the Pokémon 20th anniversary video that aired stateside ahead of the franchise's birthday. Later in the show, he joked that the games would include "over 10 new Pokémon."
