Many Nintendo fans were worried when the Japanese company announced that the upcoming Legend of Zelda game would be the company's main focus at this month's E3 expo. As Zelda would be the only demo playable at their booth at E3, some fans were concerned that they wouldn't spend time on any of their other franchises, especially Pokemon, which has two games coming out later this year. However, today Nintendo confirmed that Pokemon Sun and Moon and Pokemon GO would both be featured in the "Nintendo Treehouse" presentations taking place on June 14th and 15th.

The Pokemon Sun and Moon presentation will have live gameplay and will probably showcase the recently announced "Rotom Pokedex" feature that marks a major departure from the Pokemon games' traditional Pokedex features. Nintendo's presentation on Pokemon Sun and Moon will open Nintendo's presentation on June 14th along with a lengthy presentation on the new Legend of Zelda game.

On June 15th, Nintendo will host a Q&A session with one of the developers of Pokemon GO during its second day of presentations. Although most of Pokemon GO's features have already been introduced, we may finally get a hint of when the highly anticipated mobile app will be released.


E3 will take place June 14-16 in Los Angeles. Pokemon Sun and Moon will be released on November 18 in the US and Japan and November 23 in Europe.
