Attention coaches! There will soon be three new Pokémon games for “Nintendo Switch.” That’s what Tsunekazu Ishihara, president and CEO of The Pokémon Company, announced today in a video presentation: “Pokémon – Radiant Diamond”, “Pokémon – Shining Pearl” and “Pokémon – Legends: Arceus”. The first two games will be published later this year, the third only in early 2022.
Back to the Sinnoh region
In 2006, with the release of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl for the Nintendo DS, trainers had the first opportunity to tour the Sinnoh region. At Versions for Nintendo Switch Players can return to the faithful remakes of the two Pokémon games. The proportions of the cities and routes have been maintained. Fans familiar with the originals will recognize many familiar places. Trainers will be able to choose Chelast, Panflam, or Piplup as their first partner Pokémon before setting out on their journey.
What can players expect from Pokémon Legends: Arceus?
“Pokémon Legends: Arceus” takes you back in time to this region, where the concept of the Pokémon Trainer and the Pokémon League did not yet exist. In this past, players would go on the hunt to create the region’s first Pokédex. This Sinnoh has a rich nature and the crater mountain in the center. While exploring the beautiful nature, you will meet the local Pokémon.
To catch wild specimens, players can observe them closely before approaching them and throwing the Poké Ball. You can also fight wild Pokémon with allied Pokémon. At the beginning of the adventure, players can choose Bauz, Feurigel, or Ottaro as their first companion Pokémon.
