Sinnoh Remakes

Pokemon BDSP Diamond and Pearl Remakes

These long-awaited remakes for original Pokemon Diamond and Pearl games bring you on an adventure in the classic Sinnoh region with a new and updated art style.

Classic Sinnoh Pokemon

Pokemon BDSP Sinnoh Starters

Start your adventure with the three original starters of the Sinnoh region and encounter other beloved Pokemon as you go along your journey. These Pokemon will help you pave a new path in familiar lands.

Iconic Locations and Characters

Pokemon BDSP Mount Coronet

The new games bring back many memorable locations from the classic games in vivid 3D. Explore the familiar landscapes through a new lens and meet old friends from your original Sinnoh adventure.

Differences from the Original Versions

Developed by ILCA

Developed by Ilca.png
Surprisingly, the remakes of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl will not be developed by Game Freak, but instead by ILCA, a company which coordinated with Game Freak on Pokemon HOME's development.

We're hoping ILCA will follow up on the legacy and innovation that Game Freak brings to each new game in the series!
