It’s official, The Pokémon Company has announced Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are arriving this year.
The PR describes how the Nintendo DS originals have been faithfully reproduced. There are also a number of updates, including easy-to-understand and player-friendly conveniences.
All of this has got fans wondering if the content from the third version, Pokémon Platinum, will feature. According to a Twitter user known as ‘voltimer‘, there’s a good chance it will, based on the reveal trailer:
As can be seen above, there’s apparently an extra NPC in the Platinum version of Floaroma Town that also features in the Switch version. This character gives you Gracidea if you have Shaymin on hand.
It’s also considered as “more concrete evidence” than the appearance of Porygon-Z in the Switch trailer – which appears in Diamond and Pearl’s post-game.
What do you make of all this? Think it’s a sign of Platinum Version content in the remakes? Leave a comment down below.
