London, United Kingdom—November 19, 2021—Trainers can explore the Sinnoh region once again in the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl games, now available exclusively on Nintendo Switch systems.
 
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl are faithful remakes of the Pokémon Diamond Version and Pokémon Pearl Version games, which were first released for the Nintendo DS system in 2006. The original games have been faithfully reproduced and colorfully revitalised for Nintendo Switch. Trainers will meet Professor Rowan, battle against Team Galactic, explore the Grand Underground, and more. For those setting out through Sinnoh for the first time, plenty of fun encounters and surprises await.
 
Trainers will choose from Turtwig, Chimchar or Piplup to be their first partner Pokémon before setting off on their journey. Along the way, they will be able to encounter the Legendary Pokémon Dialga in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or the Legendary Pokémon Palkia in Pokémon Shining Pearl.
