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!
