If you played the original Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, then a lot of these elements will be familiar to you. If you haven’t played the original pair of titles then the next best thing is the remake that looks to faithfully bring the games to Switch.
Today’s trailer features a few things including the Poketch, gadget players will receive that features several apps for you to use including the Dowsing Machine, the ability to call on wild Pokémon, and let them use HMs like Chop to cut down obstacles or Rock Climb to scale cliffs.
We also get a look at Amity Square in Hearthome City, a place where Trainers can hang out with their partners. You can walk with upwards of six Pokémon but will need to be permitted entry first.
Lastly, Poffins are shown and when given to your Pokémon, can raise conditions such as Coolness or Cuteness. These conditions when raised allow you to earn higher scores during Visual Evaluation when entering Super Contest Shows.
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl are set to launch on Switch on November 19, 2021.
