'Pokémon' Releasing New 'Sun' and 'Moon' Games

Pokémon turns 20 on Feb. 27, 2016, so what better way to celebrate its legacy than with a whole new adventure?

The franchise has announced the latest additions to the series with Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. While we don't totally get a sneak preview of the new game, Nintendo did reveal a trailer that looks back on 20 years of Pokémon gaming and gives a slight indication of the new games. Check it out above, then watch this amazing clip showing the game's visual and stylistic evolution over its 20 years.

No word on whether the latest games will incorporate new pocket monsters, adding to the current grand total of 722 Pokémon, but we can at least hope for more creatures to join Pikachu, Jigglypuff and the gang.

Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon will arrive this holiday season.
