At time of writing it's currently 07:32 a.m. Pacific Time. e3.nintendo.com has not been updated yet (it redirects to nintendo.com, code mentions E3 2016 still). Nintendo's E3 press site is still experiencing runtime errors.

Dude I just realized I very well qualified for a couple of jobs at Nintendo but moving across the country would be tough. Its already hard enough living 8 hours away from the Parents and Inlaws. Going from a day drive to flying only would require a huge pay increase. Even if it'd be cool to be the guy that does all the data analysis and reporting for Nintendo.

Wow, would you look at that...

http://www.pokemon.com/hoshi

... redirects to the homepage, much like /niji before it. What a strange coincidence that it does not throw a 404.
Seems like a lot of things redirect:

http://www.pokemon.com/mushi
http://www.pokemon.com/michi
http://www.pokemon.com/funki
http://www.pokemon.com/cranki
http://www.pokemon.com/turki
http://www.pokemon.com/trumpi
http://www.pokemon.com/angri
http://www.pokemon.com/filthi
http://www.pokemon.com/qwerti

Appears that they set up redirects for many, if not all, strings ending in "I," possibly to avoid another Niji leak situation.

Now this is some concrete evidence. #team real indeed.

It was always a matter of when they will announce it, alot of sources were on to this.
Look a few posts above, looks like it was more of a preventive measure to stop leaks like what happened with Niji (Sun/Moon).

I just received a notification on my phone from Game regarding a recent Nintendo Direct.

Turns out it was from the 14th April, and my phone decided to notify me now. Even my inbox is teasing me.

Oh, wow... With both niji and hoshi redirecting to the homepage, it didn't occur to me that the -i part may be causing this. :p
