What is Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, Shining Pearl?
Nintendo has announced that their next Pokémon video game will launch on 19th November 2021. Brilliant Diamond Shining Pearl will be an updated version of the 2006 4th Generation game, Diamond and Pearl.
The Japanese company ILCA has been chosen to produce the new games. This marks a change from the company Game Freak, that has produced earlier games. That said, Game Freak will oversee the work of ILCA.
As always, there will be two games, Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, with each differing slightly and they will be exclusive to Nintendo Switch. Both will explore the Sinnoh region and the Nintendo promotional material promises to show this region ‘in a brilliant new light’. Also announced are ‘up close and personal Pokémon battle scenes’. It is believed that Raids, introduced in Pokémon Sword and Shield, will feature in this new game offering. Also highly likely are Mega evolutions.
