Description

Revisit the Sinnoh region and story of the Pokémon Diamond Version and the Pokémon Pearl Version games

Experience the nostalgic story from the Pokémon™ Diamond Version and the Pokémon™ Pearl Version games in a reimagined adventure, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl, now on the Nintendo Switch™ system! Adventures in the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl games will take place in the familiar Sinnoh region. Rich in nature and with mighty Mount Coronet at its heart, Sinnoh is a land of many myths passed down through the ages. You’ll choose either Turtwig, Chimchar, or Piplup to be your first partner Pokémon and then set off on your journey to become the Champion of the Pokémon League. Along the way, you’ll run into the mysterious organization Team Galactic, and be able to encounter the Legendary Pokémon Dialga or Palkia.

Explore the revamped Grand Underground or put on a Super Contest Show

The Underground from the Pokémon Diamond Version and Pokémon Pearl Version games has been powered up and is now called the Grand Underground. Here, you can dig up valuable treasure and Pokémon Fossils, create your own Secret Base, and catch Pokémon in places called Pokémon Hideaways. When you aren’t exploring in the Grand Underground, enter a Super Contest Show! Super Contest Shows are popular events in the Sinnoh region, each put on by four performers and their partner Pokémon, who work together to dance and show off their performance skills. You can also adventure in the Grand Underground or put on a Super Contest Show with other players through the local* communication or online** communication of your Nintendo Switch system***!

Walk with your Pokémon, change up your style, and customize your Poké Balls

Choose a Pokémon that you’ve befriended during your journey to walk along behind you in the games. In the relaxing Amity Square you can walk with up to 6 Pokémon! Depending on the Pokémon, you’ll see different gestures or ways of walking, and when you talk to your Pokémon, it will respond. You’ll also be able to add your own personal style! Choose a variety of outfits and coordinate tops and bottoms. Some are based around Pokémon motifs and others change your hairstyle. You can even use Capsule Decoration to add stickers to customize the effects that appear when your Pokémon comes out of its Poké BallTM!

Adventure together with the Pokémon that appeared in the Pokémon Diamond Version and Pokémon Pearl Version games. Players of the original games can revisit familiar places and relive familiar scenes, while first time players can enjoy plenty of fun encounters and surprises that the Sinnoh region has to offer. The original story and the scale of the Sinnoh region’s towns and routes have been faithfully reproduced. These remakes have also been revitalized with some of the player-friendly features of modern Pokémon games and up-close-and-personal Pokémon battle scenes.

Returning from Pokémon Diamond Version and Pokémon Pearl Version are Poffins, snacks that can raise Pokémon’s conditions, such as Coolness or Cuteness. By raising these conditions, you can get higher scores during the Visual Evaluation of Super Contest Shows. Not only can you make Poffins in the Poffin House, but also in Amity Square where your Pokémon will help out.

Early in your journey you’ll receive the Pokétch, a handy in-game gadget that’s loaded up with various apps. As you proceed through your adventure, you’ll get more and more apps to use, like the Dowsing Machine to help find hidden items and the Memo Pad. The Pokétch also allows you to call on wild Pokémon to help you out. They’ll use hidden moves like Cut to chop down trees that block your way, or Rock Climb to scale steep cliffs.

Unravel the plot of the mysterious Team Galactic as you work towards becoming the next Pokémon League Champion. Their leader is Cyrus, a charismatic figure who always speaks and acts with a calm, logical demeanor. He detests human minds and emotions, finding them defective. Find out what Team Galactic is up to and take down their leader.

Whether you played Pokémon Diamond Version or Pokémon Pearl Version back in the day or you’re encountering these games for the first time, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
