The Pokemon Company and developers ILCA and Game Freak have released new information, trailers, and images for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl, showcasing the Poketch, Amity Square, and Poffins add-ons.
Details are as follows:
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl are more faithful remakes of the Pokemon Diamond Version and Pokemon Pearl Version games, bringing the Trainers back to the Sinnoh region, where they will meet Professor Rowan, fight against Team Galactic, and discover the Grand. Underground. For those who set foot in Sinnoh for the first time, lots of new encounters and surprises await.
The All-Purpose Poketch
Poketch is a useful utility that players receive during their in-game journey that is used with a variety of applications. This versatile tool has applications for all kinds of situations, such as the Dowsing Machine app, which can be used to locate hidden items. In Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl, Poketch also allows players to call on wild Pokemon to help them by using hidden moves like Cut to cut down obstructing trees or Rock Climb to expand steep cliffs.
Have Fun with Pokemon in Amity Square
Amity Square in Hearthome City is a relaxing place where Trainers can spend time with their Pokemon. They will be able to walk with up to 6 of their Pokemon at a time, as long as they are on the list of Pokemon allowed into the park. While inside Amity Square, players can also adjust the camera angle and zoom level to take photos and record videos with their Pokemon. You can take pictures by pressing the Nintendo Switch system's Capture button, while you can record short videos by pressing and holding the button.
Make Some Poffins!
Poffins are snacks that can raise a Pokemon's condition, such as Coolness or Cuteness. By raising these conditions, players can get higher scores in the Visual Evaluation of Super Contest Shows. In Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl, one could only make Poffins in Poffin House, but now players can also make them in Amity Square.
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl will launch on Nintendo Switch on November 19 globally.
