According to Serebii, the Pokemon database and news site, April 3rd will be the day that the world sees the first footage of Pokemon Moon and Pokemon Sun. A post on the Serebii site claims that the footage will air in an episode of Gathering at the Pokemon House. Gathering at the Pokemon House, or Pokenchi as it is known in Japan (short for Pokemon Uchi), is a Japanese Pokemon themed variety show. The show covers reasons to love Pokemon, as well as Pokemon news.
The episode of Gathering at the Pokemon House will see the Pokemon series Director Junichi Masuda, alongside battle director Shigeki Morimoto and Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire game director Shigeru Ohmori, to discuss the new game. The post from Serebii states that the first TV aired footage of Pokemon Moon and Pokemon Sun will be on this episode, but it is unknown if this footage will become available on the internet before this.
Pokemon Moon and Pokemon Sun were officially announced in a Nintendo Direct back on February 26th. They are set to release in late 2016, and will signal the beginning of the seventh generation of Pokemon. These games are the first to offer 9 available languages in the Pokemon games; Japanese, English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Korean, and Simplified and Traditional Chinese.
