Tune in for cute pets and absolutely no new information about Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl!
After hundreds of entries, and dozens of different species of animals represented, the time has come to crown a winner. The Pokémon Company held a contest where fans could submit a photo of their cute, cool or clever fur baby, in hopes of winning some great swag. Some of the prizes will include Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pearl, Pokémon plush, and even the limited-edition Nintendo Switch Lite Dialga & Palkia Edition.
But just who is the judge of whether your pet is cuter than the next? Enter celebrity guest judge: Michelle Visage. Michelle is a recording artist with several hits on the Billboard Top 100. More recently, she has been a permanent judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race since Season 3 and also hosts the U.K. and Australian versions as well.
You might be asking yourself: “What does any of this have to do with Pokémon?” Well the answer is simple. It’s all in the contests, Super Contests that is. One of the features of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl is the option to take part in Super Contests where your Pokémon are judged based on various factors such as cuteness, coolness, cleverness, etc. Starting to make sense now? We thought so.
Where to Watch
The deadline to enter the contest has come and gone. But the opportunity to see the finalists is coming up fast. If you are eager to see if your pet won best in show then you don’t have to wait long. Premiering on November 16 at 6 a.m. Pacific/ 9 a.m. Eastern on The Pokémon Company’s Official YouTube.
I do feel a sort of, responsibility here and must reiterate, that no new BDSP news will be shown during the ceremonies. There is no reason for it, as this is a showcase for your furry friends, so don’t bother asking. It’s not going to happen.
See you around, Genesect!
