    The Sinnoh Region of the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl Games
    Experience the nostalgic story from the Pokémon Diamond™ and Pokémon Pearl™ games in an adventure reborn on the Nintendo Switch™ system.

    Adventures in the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl games will take place in the Sinnoh region. Rich in nature and with Mount Coronet towering at its heart, Sinnoh is a land of many myths passed down through the ages. You’ll visit many different locations in the Sinnoh region, while striving to become the Champion of the Pokémon League.

      The original story has been faithfully reproduced, and the sense of scale in the originals’ towns and routes has been carefully preserved. People who played Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl can revisit familiar places and relive familiar scenes once more. For those setting out through Sinnoh for the first time, plenty of new encounters and surprises await.

    I think Japan honors game freak enough to not let them get stunted on with mainline pokemon games from a different dev. giving the IP to literally any other dev would have GF all the way down horrendous.

    they can still keep game freak for direction/concept design/battle/balancing mechanics, and ost. other than that, keep them away from optimizing and rendering the game.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re not even aware how they’re efforts are perceived in the west.
    Western studios will interact with their consumers via social media and acknowledge things (Halo Infinite pushed back for looking trash). With Japanese based studios they give pre recorded press conferences dubbed in english, and you don’t hear from them for months.

    Infernape & Empoleon are nice too. They've been mostly duds after Hoenn imo, that was the last game where all 3 starters looked kinda cool. And Swampert weighs this down because Blaziken/Sceptile are two of the best designs they ever made, if he was up to par with the other 2 it would've overtaken Gen 1 for me. They do their best work with bipedal human looking mons (Blaziken, Sceptile, Infernape), anything else and the well is beyond dry at this point.
