Since it's not really speculation anymore, I felt like I should just make a new thread for that.

UPDATE : just in case, while the domain names have been registered by an official trademarking company that usually only deals with companies, I'll stick Joe's tweet here :

UPDATE 2 :

Somewhere. I think.

Don't official domain names just redirect to the official Pokémon website when it's now active yet? I remember previous Pokémon domain names (including some that were never used) redirecting to that.

So the sites were registered yesterday, the day when the leaks became public, and they don't link back to Pokemon.com...

Yeah, I'm gonna go with the URL squatting theory here.

#TeamEevee

I'm so intrigued by it.

What if you start the game at the Pokémon Mansion at Celadon City (where you get Eevee in Blue, Red and Yellow),

What if you play as Blue, your main rival (considering Eevee is his starter in Pokémon Yellow)?

At present we don't know if that company is representing Nintendo/Pokémon or if it's someone squatting through that company

Why would redirect mean anything right now? I don't see how anyone benefits from it being set up one way or another.

But were they registered by Nintendo or some dudes trying to make some money?
This. The URLs also don't match what TPC normally does (it's typically pokemon-firstversionsecondversion, i.e. pokemon-sunmoon.com. While that would be really messy with these names, it's still weird to see two individual domains registered).

So according to you it's no longer speculation and 'confirmed' at this point, but we don't know if this is official.

Serebii in your opinion do you think this Eevee and Pikachu thing are actual Pokemon versions? Is there a chance it is something completely different?
