Pokemon Sun, Moon Trademarks Appear In European Registry?

If true, look for "Pokémon Stars" in 2019 or so

A recently launched website named "NerdLeaks" has unearthed what appear to be European trademark filings for future Pokémon games ahead of tomorrow's Pokémon Direct.

The filings appear to show a Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, with the status of the trademark given as "Application under examination" and a filing date of 25 February 2016. A logo is given in both applications.

Nintendo has registered multiple trademarks for Pokémon in the past, such as registering "Pokemon" and every color as found in 2009. Of those, Pokémon Black and White did end up releasing, but approximately 18 months later in Japan. It is possible that Sun and Moon may be announced tomorrow, but nothing is confirmed at this time and the trademark may provide a form of legal protection in the event another party would try to claim the trademark.

What would the inevitable third version be? Eclipse? Comet?

Hard to imagine that this would be a coincidence with the Direct tomorrow. Either way I'm looking forward to some sort of reveal for the next mainline game, whatever it might be.

Come on give the martial arts pig monkey a new evolution! Monkey style kung fu and the moon go hand in hand!

Please please please! It's time!

The inevitable third version wouldn't exist, like Z.
