What are Pokémon Brilliant Diamonds and Brilliant Pearls?

Brilliant diamonds and shiny pearls bring players back to the Sinnoh area, where you will continue your adventure while collecting, evolving, and fighting Pokemon along the way. The Pokemon Company stated that these are faithful remakes, retaining the towns and routes in the original version. However, these games will also include some quality of life improvements found in the latest games in the series.

For those who need to be reminded, the first Pokemon are Chimchar, Turtwig and Piplup. The legendary Pokémon of brilliant diamonds is Diya Luca, and the legendary Pokémon of brilliant pearls is Palkia.

In “Pokemon Diamond and Pearl” published by IGN in 2006, the game scored 8.5 points, thanks to its “strategic depth and excellent gameplay.”

No pre-order bonus
