Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl take players back to the land of Sinnoh. Choose from starters Turtwig, Piplup, and Chimchar to set out on your Pokemon adventure traveling to different towns and defeating gym leaders. Along your adventure watch out for Team Galactic who is trying to uncover the secrets of the Space and Time Pokemon.

This game has been remade with a chibi art style reminiscent of the original games, while battles play out similarly to recent titles like Pokemon Sword and Shield. While the majority of the story and mechanics are the same there are a few updated portions including a more expansive Underground that contains areas with new wild Pokemon similar to Wild Areas, and the ability to summon wild pokemon to use HMs. I'm sure this will allow Bibarel to get a bit of a rest.
