In a recent Nintendo Direct, The Pokémon Company announced that it will be releasing a new version of Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon to be called Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon. These enhanced versions of the 2016 titles will feature additional story elements not present in the originals and new features to be revealed at a later date. The pair of titles will release simultaneously on 3DS on November 17, 2017. A brief trailer — which begins at timecode 3:51 — was released for the title, showing updated designs for the Sun and Moon's legendary Pokémon.
Additionally, the company also announced that Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver will be arriving on the 3DS Virtual Console on September 22, 2017. The two titles will utilize the wireless features of the consoles to allow for both Link Battle and Link Trading functions as well as Time Capsule functions to connect the game to Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue.
