Nintendo's forthcoming titles "Pokémon Sun" and "Pokémon Moon" have been kept under tight wraps by the company since its unveiling during the Nintendo Direct broadcast for the Pokémon 20th Anniversary.

Nevertheless, eager fans believe they have found some dirt on the coming 3DS titles. The new information comes from the trademarks revealed in February and may reveal the names for two legendary Pokémon characters. Check out the names below courtesy of Nintendo Life:

  • Solgaleo (ソルガレオ)
  • Lunaala (ルナアーラ)

The two names have NeoGAF users speculating on all sorts of matters including potential settings or inspired locations for "Pokémon Sun" and "Pokémon Moon." Thus far, the NeoGAF community have settled on a Spain-inspired location for the titles, and it would make sense as the two Pokémon names above contain "Sol" and "Luna," which are the Spanish names for sun and moon.

Joe Merrick, webmaster of Serebii.net, has said that it is possible these trademarks aren't guaranteed to be Pokémon relevant. He's highlighted that while Pokémon trademarks are often listed under Nintendo, Game Freak or the Pokémon Company, this one is through an IP lawyer, which is likely serving as a proxy.

While it's all speculation at this point, it is worth noting that The Pokémon Company filed a similar trademark for the names "Delphox" and "Meowstic" prior to the release of the "Pokémon X" and "Pokémon Y" titles, which both turned out to be new Pokémon in the games.

Meanwhile Gamers and Pokémon fans alike can expect a nice layout of information in May. According to Comicbook.com, the Japanese magazine CoroCoro has promised to bring updates about both titles next month. The site says The Pokémon Company is expected to reveal the box art of "Pokémon Sun" and "Pokémon Moon." And lucky for viewers, the box art almost always contains images of the game's legendary Pokémon.
