Pokémon Sun and Moon is already out in North America. This game is available for 3DS/2DS only, but it seems Pokémon Sun and Moon Nintendo Switch version is already under development.
Several sources told Eurogamer that this version is already being developed by Gamefreak, launching in 2017 with the name of Pokémon Stars.
In few words, Nintendo Switch will be the first home console to receive a Pokémon game.
By the way, Pokémon Sun and Moon is having a great success, with a lot of units shipped.
According to Takashi Mochizuki, Wall Street Journal Technology Reporter in Tokyo, both Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon have already shipped together more than 10 million of units. This makes it the biggest initial shipment for Nintendo 3DS games.

A great result for Nintendo, that will probably have even more success with Pokémon Sun and Moon Nintendo Switch version.
Anyhow, Nintendo is also facing some problems with pirates.
A group of hackers succeeded in leaking Pokémon Sun and Moon games, featuring some relevant information abut that game.
Nintendo obviously responded to this attack in the fastest way possible.
From now on, everyone who owns a pirate copy of these games will get banned. It means that whether they try to enter the eShop or to play online, the system will block their access and redirect them to Nintendo support page.
Pokémon Sun and Moon are already available in North America for Nintendo 3DS/2DS, while Pokémon Stars is releasing within 2017.
