Pokémon Sun and Moon – Ho-Oh distribution (Japan)

In the latest issue of CoroCoro magazine, The Pokémon Company will announce that Ho-Oh is to be distributed in Pokémon Sun and Moon, in Japan. That distribution will take place later this year, and… that’s pretty much all we know for now. And it’s not just because of incomplete leaks: the magazine itself mentions details about the distribution are still “under investigation”…
