Here’s every encounter in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, because why not?

All 494

Over on YouTube, MasterofHyrule has put together a series of animations for every single fight in Pokemon Diamond & Pearl. Yes, I mean every encounter — all 494 of them, and it includes the battle cries. Despite the fact that they’re a second (if that) each, it takes 12:44 to get through them all.

I used this time to reflect on my experiences with the series as a whole, having beaten every game, and I really think that Diamond and Pearl are my least favorite of the bunch. They lacked that wow factor that many other games in the series had, even Black & White 2, which featured a kickass endgame that is only topped by Silver & Gold.
