On the other hand, after months and months of game leaks, Pokemon Sun and Moon games are set to arrive to the Nintendo 3DS in two weeks.
Pokemon Go Latest Update
If you are a loyal Pokemon Go fan, you are probably reaping the huge rewards and bonuses from the latest update.

If you have been checking your feed for Pokemon Sun and Moon news, game leaks are all over the place including Pokemon stats and more info about the mysterious Ultra Beasts. What a smart move to get more hype for its Nov. 18 release, yes?
Pokemon Go Transfer to Pokemon Sun and Moon
New details for both Pokemon games can be quite overwhelming but wait till you hear more! Just recently, news from the Reddit community mentioned that it is entirely possible to transfer Pokemon from Pokemon Go to Pokemon Sun and Moon.
This shocking revelation was just discovered in text file 70, which according to Pokemongohub, is where Pokemon originated. This Pokemon history file shows sources to more regions where you can obtain Pokemon, including Pokemon Link and Poke Pelagio. You can see the image here.
Pokemon Go and Pokemon Sun and Moon Compatibility Hinted Previously
If you can remember, this Pokemon Go and Pokemon Sun and Moon compatibility was hinted by Junichi Masuda, the game producer, and Shigeru Ohmori, director, months back. Here's a translation from Nintendo Everything dated July 23, 2016:
"[Masuda, Ohmori] are also considering linkage with the smartphone app Pokémon GO which came out earlier this month. However, Masuda said that Pokémon GO is a game about catching Pokémon by walking all around the world. And even with the same Pokémon species, they have different appearance methods and catch rates in Sun/Moon. If they are to link the two games, they have to do it in a way that doesn't break the balance of either game and even end up making both games boring. They still need to find an interesting idea that could make both games more interesting."
