Characters

Image

Professor Rowan: A famous professor in the field of Pokémon Evolution. He entrusts you with a Pokémon and asks you to help complete the Pokédex.
Your Rival: Your childhood friend. He sets off on his journey at the same time as you and hones his skills as a Pokémon Trainer through your friendly rivalry.
Cynthia: A mysterious person who shows up at many points along your journey. She’s investigating myths about Pokémon.
Team Galactic: Team Galactic is a group active all over the Sinnoh region. Dressed in their uniforms, they make trouble for you at every turn, attempting to interfere with your adventure.
Dawn/Lucas: Professor Rowan’s assistant. A reliable friend who’ll help you out at every stage of your journey to complete your Pokédex. Whether Dawn or Lucas appears as Professor Rowan’s assistant depends on the appearance of the protagonist that you choose at the beginning of the game.

New details revealed:
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl will bring Trainers back to the Sinnoh region, where they will meet Professor Rowan, battle against Team Galactic, and explore the Grand Underground. The Sinnoh region’s popular Pokémon Super Contests return as Super Contest Shows, and players can socialize with other Trainers from around the world in the Union Room. Trainers will also be able to personalize their gameplay experience by using Capsule Decoration. Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl will be compatible with Pokémon HOME in 2022.

Have a blast in the Grand Underground

Image

The Underground from Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl has been powered up for these games, and is now called the Grand Underground. The Grand Underground is a vast subterranean world that spreads out like a maze beneath the entire Sinnoh region.

Use the Explorer Kit you’ll receive during your adventure to visit the Grand Underground, where you can participate in activities such as digging up valuable treasures and Pokémon Fossils, or creating your own Secret Base. You can also visit places called Pokémon Hideaways, where you can find Pokémon that live in a variety of different environments.

Pokémon Hideaways come with a variety of different terrains ranging from still-water caverns to volcanic landscapes, with different Pokémon living in each type of environment. Among the Pokémon that inhabit the Sinnoh region, there are some Pokémon that can only be found in these Pokémon Hideaways.

Image Image

Some of the walls in the Grand Underground can be dug into, using a sledgehammer and a pickax. By digging into them, you can find things like useful items for your adventure and valuable Pokémon Fossils, as well as new Pokémon statues that have been added to these games.

Build your very own Secret Base and decorate it with Pokémon statues!

You can use an item called the Digger Drill in the Grand Underground to build yourself a Secret Base within the walls. Pokémon statues that you can find while Fossil digging can be placed wherever you like inside your Secret Base, so you can customize your own space!

Image Image

Adventure together with Trainers all over the world in the Grand Underground!

You can interact with Trainers all over the world through your Nintendo Switch system’s local communication or online communication. As well as adventuring together in the Grand Underground, you can also dig for Fossils together with other Trainers.

Image Image

Work up the crowd to put on a successful Super Contest Show!

Image

Super Contest Shows are popular performances in Sinnoh, each put on by four performers and their Pokémon, who work together to show off their performance skills. During the show, you can dress up in your favorite outfit, and your Pokémon will dance, making for an altogether different experience from their usual battles of strength.

Up to four people can participate together, so you can show off your best performance with your friends to really wow the crowd!

Super Contest Show Categories
Super Contest Shows are divided into five categories—Coolness, Cuteness, Beauty, Toughness, and Cleverness. Within each category, there are several ranks: Normal, Great, Ultra, and Master Rank.

Image Image

Super Contest Shows Evaluations
Super Contest Shows are judged based on a Visual Evaluation, a Dance Evaluation, and a Move Evaluation. You can receive Hype Points based on your evaluations, and if the combined total of all four performers’ Hype Points reaches a target score, the show will be declared a success.

Image Image

Visual Evaluation
This evaluation is based on Pokémon’s conditions, such as Coolness or Beauty, as well as the effects of their Capsule Decoration.

Image Image

Use Capsule Decoration to create effects according to your taste!

Using Capsule Decoration, you can place Stickers to customize the effects that appear when your Pokémon comes out of its Poké Ball for battles or Super Contest Shows. With over 90 different Stickers, you can customize your Ball Capsules with effects like fluttering flower petals or raging flames.

You can buy Stickers in shops, but you can also get them in other ways, such as by defeating Gym Leaders or completing successful Super Contest Shows.

Image Image

You can place up to 20 Stickers on a Ball Capsule, so it’s possible to customize the Ball Capsule with some really varied combinations. Ball Capsules can be edited in the casual 2D style of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, or in 3D if you’d rather get really detailed with your customizations.

Image Image

Walk around with your favorite Pokémon!

Once you’ve progressed in the game to a certain point, you can choose just one Pokémon that you’ve befriended at a time to walk along behind you. Any Pokémon that appears in these games can walk with you, so choose your favorite to travel with you through the Sinnoh region as you visit lots of places and make memories together.

Image Image

Interact with Trainers all over the world in the Union Room!

The Union Room is a facility where you can enjoy battling and trading Pokémon with other Trainers through your Nintendo Switch system’s local communication or online communication.

Image Image

Local Room
In the Local Room, nearby Trainers can gather using local communication to enjoy trades, battles, and other activities.

Global Room
Trainers around the world can use online communication to gather in a single room for Pokémon trades, battles, and other activities.

Adventure in style, wearing your favorite outfits!

You’ll be able to buy and change outfits at Metronome Style Shop in Veilstone City.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Image

Pokémon Legends: Arceus takes Trainers on an adventure through the Sinnoh region of the past—before it was even called Sinnoh. Many years ago, the land was called the Hisui region, and it was rare for humans and Pokémon to live in close harmony. High resolution artwork and screenshots from the press release have been added to the Pokémon Legends: Arceus Imageboard thread.

New gameplay details and Pokémon revealed:
As a member of the Galaxy Expedition Team, players will visit Jubilife Village, a bustling settlement that serves as a base of operations. After receiving an assignment or a request, Trainers will set out from the village to study one of the various areas of the Hisui region. After they finish their survey work, Trainers return to Jubilife Village to prepare for their next task. Whenever Trainers leave Jubilife Village to set out on an excursion, their first stop will be one of the base camps that will serve as an outpost for their work. These base camps are more than just starting points—Trainers can stop for a rest during an excursion, letting their team of Pokémon recover their health, or use a base camp’s workbench to craft items.

Image

As Trainers progress toward completing the Pokédex and increase in rank as a member of the Galaxy Team, they will meet interesting characters and encounter unique Pokémon living in the Hisui region.

Image

Weight: 95.7 lbs.
Type: Psychic/Flying

Pokémon UNITE Mobile Launch

Image

Pokémon UNITE will be available for download on mobile devices on September 22, 2021. In this title that released on the Nintendo Switch system last month, players face off against each other in five-on-five team battles, in which they cooperate with teammates to defeat wild Pokémon—as well as level up and evolve their own Pokémon—to defeat the opposing team. High resolution artwork and screenshots from the press release have been added to the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearls Imageboard thread.

In anticipation of the launch of the mobile version, preregistration has now begun on the App Store and Google Play Store. If preregistration totals reach 2,500,000, players will receive the Unite license for Pikachu. If the total hits 5,000,000, players will also get a Special Holowear—Festival Style: Pikachu. If and when those thresholds are reached, Trainers can claim the Pikachu Unite license and Holowear by logging in to the mobile version of Pokémon UNITE and completing the log-in event by October 31, 2021, at 7:59 a.m. PDT.

Pokémon UNITE players can also log in to the Nintendo Switch version of the game right now to receive the Unite license for Zeraora as a special gift. If players link the same account to both the Nintendo Switch version and the mobile version, they’ll be able to use Zeraora in the mobile version when it launches, too. Trainers can also look forward to Mamoswine and Sylveon, coming soon as the next playable Pokémon to join the fray.

Pokémon GO

Pokémon from the Galar region will be making an appearance in Pokémon GO from August 20 to August 31, 2021. Wooloo, Skwovet, and Falinks can be encountered in the wild, while Galarian Legendary Pokémon Zacian will be making its debut in five-star raids from August 20 to 26, followed by Zamazenta from August 26 to September 1.

Pokémon Masters EX

In celebration of Pokémon Masters EX’s two-year anniversary, a new legendary event, Howling Shield of Eternity, and the power of Dynamaxing are coming to the game. From now until 10:59 p.m. PDT on September 15, 2021, players can assist Gloria, Hop, and Leon as they try to help the Legendary Pokémon Eternatus, which has arrived on the island along with a mysterious meteor. Playing through the event will reward players with the sync pair Hop & Zamazenta, gems, and other useful items. During the event, Sygna Suit Leon & Eternatus will also be making their debut in the sync pair scout, so Trainers can add them to their team.

Trainers should also keep an eye out for the return of N and other sync pairs soon as part of the two-year anniversary celebration. N will be wearing an interesting new outfit and be paired with a Pokémon capable of doing damage to all foes at once.

Pokémon Café ReMix

Pokémon Café Mix, the touch-based puzzle game for Nintendo Switch and mobile devices, is getting a revamp this fall, along with a new name—Pokémon Café ReMix. Updates will include new puzzle elements, more Pokémon, new dress-up options, and more ways of growing and developing staff Pokémon. High resolution artwork and screenshots from the press release have been added to the Pokémon Cafe ReMix Imageboard thread.

Pokémon are now able to eat the delicious meals prepared for them, making them more friendly and more willing to become staff Pokémon. New puzzle skills that will make it easier to clear puzzles will also be introduced in Pokémon Café ReMix, as well as the ability to combine megaphones to make them more powerful. Golden acorns collected in Pokémon Café Mix will transfer to Pokémon Café ReMix.
