GAME FREAK Game Designer Shigeru Ohmori was interviewed by IGN and he confirmed that Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon will be the last main series Pokémon RPG games on the Nintendo 3DS. It was announced earlier in the year that a new Pokémon title was in development for the Nintendo Switch for release in 2018.

Below are Interview quotes:
"When we were making Pokemon X and Y, we really were trying to push the 3DS system to its absolute limits - which is what we thought we’d done. But when Sun and Moon came around, we completely redesigned the system, and actually ended up pushing the 3DS even further to what we thought was the most we could draw out of it."

"With Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon," explains Ohmori, "we’ve tried to eke that out more and really, really push the system to its absolute limits, and we’re now feeling that perhaps this is the maximum of what we can get out. So we’re really treating Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon as the culmination of our work with the 3DS system."

The Pokémon Global Link for XY and ORAS will close in late October 2016 but will be upgraded to support Pokémon Sun and Moon.

With the release of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, the Pokémon Global Link (PGL) will end its current Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y service. The PGL service will be updated to work with Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon.

After the current PGL service ends, you won't be able to link Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, or Pokémon Y with the PGL, or see data from these games reflected on the PGL. However, you will still be able to use the other non-PGL services via the Internet. Please see the following "Services" section for details.

We thank you very much for enjoying the current PGL since October 2013. We hope you'll have fun in the updated PGL! End date of the Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y PGL service Planned for late October, 2016

  • New registration of a game is still available until the current service ends. However, please note that the service that works with Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y will end, and you won't be able to use various features.
  • You can't transfer Poké Miles from the Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y version of the PGL to the Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon version of the PGL.
  • If you use Game Sync, the message "The service has been discontinued. (Error Code: 090-0211)" will be displayed.
  • You can keep trading Pokémon at the Global Trade Station (GTS), but you won't be able to see your trading log on the PGL.
  • After the current service ends, you won't be able to participate in Random Matchup Rating Battles with Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y.
  • Even after the current service ends, you'll be able to keep enjoying the features of Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, and Pokémon Y using the Internet, such as Random Matchup Free Battles, the GTS, and Wonder Trades.

A Special Mewtwo for Play! Pokémon Video Game Participants

All Pokémon players who earned at least one video game Play! Point during the 2016 season can get a Shiny Mewtwo later this summer.

As a big thank you and congratulations to everyone who has qualified by participating in a Play! Pokémon event, we'll be giving out an awesome Shiny Mewtwo! Anyone who has earned at least one video game Play! Point during the 2016 season and is opted into the Play! Pokémon program before July 10, 2016, will receive an email in late July containing a code for Shiny Mewtwo.

This is the first time players can get Mewtwo with its Hidden Ability, Unnerve, which prevents Mewtwo's opponent from eating a held Berry. Mewtwo is also holding the Mewtwonite Y Mega Stone, allowing it to Mega Evolve during battle.

The email will be sent to the address listed in your Pokémon Trainer Club account. Be sure that you are eligible to receive Pokémon Trainer Club emails in your PTC settings prior to July 10. Enter the code from the email in your Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, or Pokémon Y video game to receive Shiny Mewtwo. The code will expire on August 21, 2016, so don't forget to enter it into your game before then.

If you haven't had time to play in an event, several opportunities still remain, including the International Challenge June Online Competition.

Thanks again to all Pokémon video game players who participated in a Play! Pokémon event during the 2016 season.

Shiny Mewtwo Details

Level: 100
Ability: Unnerve
Item: Mewtwonite Y
Moves: Psystrike, Psychic, Recover and Aura Sphere
