Four pairs of the Pokémon core series games have been remade so far, and the fifth is on its way. Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl, remakes of the Generation IV games, will bring players back to the Sinnoh region.
The region is based on Hokkaido, with many of the cities and towns in the games being based on real places in Japan. The world, remade in full 3D, looks enticing and welcoming.
The signature Pokémon master’s journey is etched into our hearts by now. We start out in the quaint Twinleaf Town, explore every inch of the vibrant world, challenge the gyms and win badges, and participate in the Pokémon League to become the Champion.
Also, foil the master plan of the mysterious uniformed organisation, Team Galactic, who will keep getting in the way of our journey.
Generation IV is also the generation that introduced us to the Pokémon Arceus, known as “The Original One”, said to have possibly created the entire Pokémon universe. It would be exciting to see how awesome the legendary Pokémon will be in the remakes.
Both Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl will be released on 19 November 2021 for the Nintendo Switch, and they are already available for preorder. The perks of an early purchase include a Manaphy Egg, and a special bonus code that gives 100 Pokeballs for each game for the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl Double Pack purchase.
