Caviar F: The 2019 Game of the Year

UPDATE February 28: When Nintendo uploaded artwork for Pokémon Sun and Moon on Friday, the filename originally started with "Niji", before being changed. This may lend credence to that part of the rumor, but I'd encourage remaining skeptical on the rest of it, especially as Nintendo's plans are constantly subject to change. Also, "ni-ju" (two ten) is the pronunciation for the number 20 in Japanese. The original story is below.
