Get ready for a busy holiday season!

Brilliantly Shine This Holiday Season

It has been a while since we first got the trailers for Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl. The original Diamond and Pearl were launched in 2006 for the Nintendo DS. The pair of games, which saw trainers travel through the Sinnoh Region, to discover the secrets of Dialga and Palkia, were a massive success. Many saw the games as a revival for the franchise and the first Pokémon game to utilize 3D models for some of the buildings and scenery.

The revitalizations of these games are to be released on November 19th, 2021 exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. These faithful reproduction can be enjoyed by new and old fans of the series and will, no doubt, bring something new to look forward too. Box cover art can be seen below.

More In Store For HOME

A bonus announcement was made for Pokémon HOME, as well. Coming in June, an update will bring the Catch Calendar. This feature enables users to view their Pokémon arranged by the dates on which they caught them. Trainers can use this feature to relive memories from their adventures, such as the day they first caught a certain Pokémon or the day of an event or other occasion when they received a Pokémon as a gift.

This update also introduces the ability to view Pokémon registered to the Pokédex in Pokémon HOME from different angles, such as above or behind. Perfect for checking out the brown spot on the butt of a male Torchic.
