Of those games, the most recent remakes in the franchise, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, developed by ILCA, have been confirmed to have sold over a collective 14.65 million units worldwide.

These entries in the series, while controversial amongst fans for various reasons, such as the presentation and lack of difficulty options, have been wildly successful since their simultaneous launches in November 2021.

Throughout Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, players explore a modernized imagining of Sinnoh with a presentation hearkening back to the DS days. Thanks to several gameplay improvements and additions, veterans and newer fans can explore the fourth mainline generation of Pokémon in a new light.

For instance, the Pokétech has returned. This handy device tracks your steps, the current time, and more. Hidden Moves, more colloquially referred to as HMs, have also returned and can be used via the Pokétech’s convenient functionality. Poffins can be baked and fed to your Pokémon, which increases several stats, such as Cuteness, meant for the Contests that judge the creatures on their non-battle capabilities.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl are currently available for Nintendo Switch.
