Pokemon Brilliant Diamond And Shining Pearl

A known, credible insider has potentially leaked the names of two new Pokemon games coming to the Nintendo Switch. Pokemon fans have been excited about the prospect of a Gen 4 remake for a long time.

There have been rumors circulating for a while that suggests Pokemon Diamond and Pearl may be getting a remake. Now, however, this might actually have been confirmed.

With any rumor or leak, it's important to take it with a pinch of salt, however, given the credibility of the leaker, it is certainly likely to be true. Here is everything we know about the new Pokemon titles.

The leak itself comes from Reddit user PracticalBrush12, who has a track record of correctly leaking important titles before events. In particular, there is a consistent track record for correctly leaking Nintendo titles.

Most notably, PracticalBrush12 leaked the most recent Nintendo Direct just before it aired. If you want to see exactly what was unveiled at the latest Nintendo Direct, you can check it out here.

He also correctly confirmed that Steve would be coming to the Smash Bros series. As you can see, PracticalBrush12 has a proven record with Nintendo so this Pokemon news is very likely to be true.

New Pokemon Games Announced

Interestingly, Paintedbrush12 has shared a number of details relating to the new Pokemon games in a Reddit post. However, fans may be excited about the prospect of another exciting reveal.

According to the Reddit post, PaintedBrush12 confirms that the titles of the new Pokemon games are Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. There is however more information to note.

EDIT: Pokemon Brilliant Diamond, Shining Pearl, and Legends: Arceus now CONFIRMED

The leaker goes on to state that the remakes are vastly different from other Pokemon remakes. According to the information, the latest Pokemon remakes will look much different, set in a "Chibi 3D style".

Furthermore, PaintedBrush12 states that the latest Pokemon titles will also not be set in the modern world. Interestingly, the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes will be set in "Feudal Sinnoh".

Following on from this, the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes are also being developed by ILCA and not GameFreak. For those who do not know, ILCA has worked on titles such as Dragon Quest XI and Nier Automata.

This might explain why the art-style has changed for the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes. Furthermore, PracticalBrush12 goes on to mention the reason behind GameFreak's absence in the new Pokemon remakes.

The rather exciting reason given is that GameFreak is busy working on their own Pokemon project set for a 2022 release. The new project you might ask? Well, according to the leak, it's an open-world Pokemon game.

This is certainly exciting news, and does contradict an earlier leak about a Pokemon: Let's Go Catching game that was rumored for today's Pokemon Direct.

Nintendo Announce New Pokemon Games Coming Soon

Interestingly, it appears that Pokemon fans have a lot to be excited about. The rumor of an open-world Pokemon game is something Pokemon fans have wanted for a long time.

If this rumor does turn out to be correct, Pokemon players will be able to look forward to not only one, but two new Pokemon titles. Make sure you tune in to today's Pokemon Presents video presentation.

Furthermore, Nintendo is working without stopping on their next console. Pokemon fans will hopefully be able to look forward to an improved experience on a new Nintendo Switch.

There are also other Pokemon rumors floating around at the moment. New Pokemon Trademarks have led to speculation that other titles are currently in production.

Interestingly, this does support the rumor that more Pokemon remakes could be coming besides Diamond and Pearl. We are sure at this point that the remakes are a given, just when they are coming is a question in itself.

In other Nintendo news, there may be more Zelda games on their way to the Nintendo Switch. It's certainly a very exhilarating time for Nintendo fans, a new Pokemon game is sure to satiate the dry spell the industry is currently facing.
