Finally, we’re getting Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes

The Pokemon Company just announced them today

Well, The Pokémon Company didn’t waste any time today!

This isn’t like one of the more recent presentations that gave us a Pokémon MOBA that still isn’t out yet. Oh no, they learned their lesson this time. The Pearl and Diamond remakes that have been rumored for the last few presentations were finally confirmed this morning via the clip below.

The new versions are called “Brilliant Diamond” and “Shining Pearl,” and will release in late 2021. ILCA will be working on this, because Game Freak is busy with Pokémon Legends.
