New details for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl have surfaced relating to auto save, TMs, Exp. Share, and more.

It’s pretty clear at this point that these two games are very faithful remakes of the DS originals. There isn’t a massive amount that’s different, but there are some additions and changes.

New gameplay for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl has surfaced, with different outlets coming forward with footage. This gives us a new look at the titles ahead of their launch next month.

Here’s some information about Pokemon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl:

There’s been a lot of talk surrounding Pokemon Legends: Arceus as of late and whether or not the game will be open world. When it was revealed many months ago, a number of people compared it to Zelda: Breath of the Wild. But more information has been shared in August and September, and after combing through all of the latest content, fans came to the conclusion that an open world probably wouldn’t be in the cards.

Based on new comments from The Pokemon Company, Pokemon Legends: Arceus will be less like Breath of the Wild and more comparable to Monster Hunter with no real open world. That’s because Jubilife Village is your base of operations, and you’ll then go to different open areas in Hisui after taking on tasks.

The full statement from The Pokemon Company reads:

The Pokemon Company is teaming up with Best Buy, as the retailer will be offering a way for players to catch Gigantamax Eevee and Gigantamax Pikachu in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.

Those that stop by the retailer will be able to pick up code cards that can be redeemed for Dynamax Crystals. These will then let you battle – and hopefully catch – a Gigantamax Pikachu and Gigantamax Eevee. You can request a code card at the register without making a purchase.

Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield have just kicked off a new Max Raid Battle event, which is all about Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio from Alola.

The starters of Pokemon Sun and Moon are all here. While the event is active, they will be showing up in Pokemon Dens throughout the Wild Area of Galar, the Isle of Armor and the Crown Tundra. Other than that, there aren’t any gimmicks here. It’s just a new opportunity to encounter and catch the starters of the 3DS titles.

A new set of screenshots are in for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl. It covers some of the aspects we posted in today’s trailer like Poketch, Amity Square, and Poffins.

Here’s the full roundup:

The Pokemon Company and Game Freak have readied another batch of details and screenshots for Pokemon Legends: Arceus covering the Arc Phone, alpha Pokemon, Celestica Flute, Jubilife Village.

Here’s the full rundown:

The Pokemon Company has shared the latest on Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl, including Poketch, Amity Square, and Poffins.

Here’s the full rundown:

A new trailer for Pokemon Legends: Arceus has just gone live, and it’s introduced us to a new creature known as Kleavor.

Kleavor is a Bug/Rock Pokemon, coming in at 5’11” and weighing 196.2 pounds. It’s able to evolve from Scyther due to special minerals located in Hisui. Parts of the creature’s body have hardened into stone, and these stone parts can chip during battle.

Another pre-order bonus for Pokemon Legends: Arceus has been revealed, this time coming from Amazon UK. The retailer is actually providing a couple of gifts. In addition to a steelbook, all buyers will receive a ball cartridge. Both items can be seen above.

Outside of Amazon, the UK My Nintendo Store is also looking to entice fans with a Pokemon Legends: Arceus pre-order bonus. Fans will be provided with the steelbook plus a figurine of Arceus, one of the stars of the Switch game.
