Pokémon Shining Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl: images, starters and legendaries

Pokémon Shining Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl

After so many rumors of these weeks, finally yesterday Game Freak and Nintendo announced Pokémon Shining Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl, the remakes for Nintendo Switch of Diamond and Pearl. Today we show you the first images of the game and we talk about the starters and the legendaries that we will meet during our adventures.

The announcement at Pokémon Presents of Pokémon Shining Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl was made with a trailer. The game will arrive at the end of the year exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.

Developed by ILCA, Inc. and directed by Junichi Masuda (GAME FREAK) and Yuichi Ueda (ILCA), Pokémon Shining Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl will allow fans to enjoy the original story and game mechanics of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl in a new light. The original games have been faithfully reproduced with vivid and bright colors for Nintendo Switch. The proportions of the cities and routes have been carefully preserved, and fans who have played the original games will recognize many familiar places. These games feature the same simple and intuitive mechanics as the more recent Pokémon series video games, but with more close-up Pokémon battle animations.

Trainers will choose Turtwig, Chimchar or Piplup as their first adventure companion before starting their journey. Along the way, they will encounter the Legendary Pokémon Dialga in Pokémon Shining Diamond or Palkia in Pokémon Shining Pearl.

Switch Is Getting Pokémon Brilliant Diamond And Shining Pearl Remakes In Late 2021

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl for the DS are getting “faithful” remakes in the form of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl on Switch later this year, the Pokémon Company announced in a livestream today.

The games take place in the Sinnoh region, one of the series’ more naturalistic settings, with players adventuring while accompanied one of either the Turtwig, Chimchar, or Piplup Pokémon starters. “The sense of scale of the towns and routes has been carefully preserved,” the company said during the presentation.

Here’s the trailer:

The Gen 4 remakes will be handled by developer ILCA rather than directly by GameFreak, but with the games’ original director, Junichi Masuda, overseeing the project. They’ll make use of a chibi-3D art style while still remaining top-down while exploring the world. Battles, meanwhile, look like they’ll follow a more modern look in line with the recent 3DS and Switch Pokémon games. The remakes will also apparently include some new quality-of-life improvements over the originals, though the Pokémon Company did not share exactly what those would be yet.

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl were originally released for the DS back in 2007, and were the first games in the series to let players battle, trade, and communicate online. The entire series has been slowly remade over the decades, most recently with overhauls to Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire on the 3DS in 2014. The Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl remakes will serve to tide fans over until a new open-world set of games called Pokémon Legends Arceus is released next year.
