Indiana Jones hunts diamonds and Jack Sparrow sails the seas on a pearl (well, the Black Pearl). Now stack up all the adventure of those flicks, then toss it into Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl! First, pick your main game and your fave Pokémon main. Then settle into heaps of hours of rad remastered romping through the seriously sweet Sinnoh region. Plus, say “hi” to an island hike and spot tucked-away treasures. We see no reason this region can’t offer the latest greatest bout of Pokémon-hunting season! Tame a tamer selection of Poké pals. But a smaller pick of peak Pokémon means it’s totes easier to keep track of all your newfound found friends. You’ll need their help to beat terrible Team Galactic. We love getting caught up in the familiar but interesting gameplay loop. Like, fluid battles with or without water-type Pokémon. Pick ’em all up for your upwards-trending Pokédex.
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl let you level up Pokémon just by carrying them around. If you’ve got a Poké pal who’s tricky to level up (we’re looking at you, Magikarp), keep them in your party. Now use the other, stronger Pokémon brawlers during the battles. You’ll net the EXP gains for the party poopers!
