As of about an hour ago, Kotaku’s Jason Scheier got an update from Big N. The Switch release posting was not intentional, and Ultra Sun and Moon are exclusive to the 3DS. We can go back to being sad, now.
Huh, guess there’s no hope for Ultra Sun/Moon to Switch after all pic.twitter.com/z8W7ArnQGf

It’s not quite official, but as a sharp Twitter user pointed out, the Official Pokemon Company press site has a listing for Ultra Sun and Moon to be released on the Nintendo Switch. The release dates are just “TBA”.
And right after the tweet, the Switch mention was taken down. So was it a mistake, to even post a Switch release timeframe? Or was it merely “too early” and something they wanted to save for E3’s Nintendo Treehouse?
Yep, we certainly think Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are coming to the Switch. Are you prepared?
