Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl are RPGs developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo DS. The games were first released on September 28, 2006 in Japan. They were later released on April 22, 2007 in North America, June 21, 2007 in Australia and July 27, 2007 in Europe.

The game takes place in Sinnoh, which is based on the island of Hokkaidō in Japan. The new criminals are Team Galactic. The game features an updated day/night system, as well as Pokémon contests, the Battle Tower, a Pokétch device, and Wi-Fi abilities.

You can battle and trade using the Wi-Fi connection. Diamond and Pearl is also be able to connect to the Wii game Pokémon Battle Revolution, where you are able to trade Pokémon from Diamond and Pearl to Battle Revolution and vica versa.

Also, you are able to transfer Pokémon from previous Game Boy Advance games onto Diamond and Pearl after reaching a certain point in the game. You must have the GBA game in the GBA slot of the Nintendo DS to do this.

Starter Pokémon

As in every Pokémon game (with the exception of Yellow), you must choose one of three pre-selected Pokémon to be with you in your party. The three new Pokémon this time around are Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup. The starters then evolve respectively into Grotle, Monferno, and Prinplup. The final evolutions are Torterra, Infernape, and Empoleon.

Development

Sales

Once it was released in Japan on September 28, 2006, it was the fastest selling Nintendo DS video game to date, and has since been the best selling Pokémon game in Japan, selling a whopping 5 million copies in a few months.

Additionally, in preparation for the game to arrive, sales on previous Pokémon Game Boy Advance games has boosted.

Reception

The reception was very good. From Ign.com, who awarded it a 8.5 out of 10 to Gamespot.com who gave it another 8.5 out of 10, it was greatly liked. When reviewers fell in love, the public followed. All users adored the game. Many of this great reception is by the touch screen interactions, better and smarter A.I. in battles, improved graphics and a great Lasting Appeal. Also, it's just because of the length of 40 hours.

Third Version

Pokémon Platinum is an enhanced remake of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl. It has a few new upgrades and Battle Frontier has returned. It has the Pokémon Giratina as its mascot. It also had a few minor changes like meeting Cyrus in the beginning of the game and newer forms for Rotom, Shaymin, and Giratina.

Trivia

The item Azure Flute is programmed into the games but was never released via Nintendo event. This would have led to a secret stairway in the Hall of Origin, and you could their catch Arceus.

    • Is Cresselia and Darkrai mortal enemies or just enemies in like being The Good Dream Pokemon and The Nightmare Pokemon????
    • From my understanding of the topic, Darkrai and Cresselia are only connected by Cresselia's ability to end nightmares caused by Darkrai.
