While Nintendo is getting ready to host a Pokemon-focused Nintendo Direct tomorrow, NerdLeaks has reported that the names of the next games are likely to be Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon.

NerdLeaks took a look at trademark registrations in the European market and found that Nintendo has filed for trademarks related to those two names. And not only that, the trademark registrations were just made today. Both of the files include a logo and would apply to a wide variety of merchandise besides just the games.

Pokemon is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this weekend, so it only makes sense that Nintendo would unveil new games during their Nintendo Direct tomorrow. We don’t have any details on what platform the games might be coming to, but looking at the past games in the series, it’s likely they will be on the Nintendo 3DS.

The Nintendo Direct presentation is scheduled to start at 7 a.m. Pacific Time.
