The Pokémon Company has shared a message on this topic, declaring the rapidly adjusted listing as a 'clerical error'.

We would like to address rumours based on a clerical error on the Pokémon press site; Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon are coming exclusively to Nintendo 3DS family of systems and are not due for release on Nintendo Switch. This listing on the Pokémon press site was made in error and is not indicative of future plans. Please refer to the Pokémon Direct for the full details of the game.”

Earlier today a special Pokémon Direct revealed that Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are coming to the 3DS this November. This announcement took some by surprise as there were rumours that a revised version of the game - dubbed Pokémon Stars - would be coming to the Nintendo Switch this year.

However, the Pokémon Company press site's page for Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon (briefly) showed a Switch version listed alongside the 3DS edition:

What do you make of this? Do you think this is simply a mistake, or was the Switch listing revealed in error ahead of an official announcement? Share your thoughts by posting a comment.
