“We’re changing our name to Union XY, it’s amazingly cool. This is something we’re so passionate about, we’ve grown up with this and it means so much to us to be able to promote it,” said George, Union J.
The official name change will happen on October 12 th, the same day as Pokémon X and Pokémon Y releases exclusively on Nintendo 3DS.
