News 'Pokémon Moon,' 'Pokémon Sun' Trademark Applications Filed in Europe (Updated)
posted on 2016-02-25 13:10 EST
Nintendo Co., Ltd. is listed as the owner, however anyone can apply for a trademark at the OHIM before they are examined to see if they are authentic or fake. A parody Twitter account "@NinlendoAmerica" pretended to confirm the news.
Nintendo will host a Pokémon Direct livestream on Friday morning at 10:00 a.m. EST to celebrate the franchise's 20th anniversary.
Update: The 'pokemon-sun.com' and 'pokemon-moon.com' websites currently redirect to the official Pokémon website. CSC Corporate Domains, Inc. registered both websites on Thursday. Thanks, Lostlorn Forest.
