Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl trailer has NPC from Pokemon Platinum
Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl first landed on DS in 2006 (2007 in the west). Pokemon Platinum would follow a couple of years later, building off of the originals while adding extra features and more.
These original DS titles are now returning on Switch. As was announced earlier today, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl will launch at the end of the year. But what about Pokemon Platinum?
While there have been no official announcement, it looks like content from Platinum could be included in the Switch remakes. In that game, there was a new NPC in Floaroma Town, and that same NPC was included in today’s trailer for Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl.
This is more concrete evidence of Platinum additions than Porygon-Z being in the trailer that's for sure
