We were introduced to the Sinnoh region with the launch of Pok\u00e9mon Diamond and Pearl back in 2006, where we got to meet new Pok\u00e9mon like Piplup, Turtwig, and Chimchar. And now, 15 years since the launch of this region, we are\u00a0finally\u00a0seeing it remade for the Nintendo Switch.\r\n\r\n\r\nExcited about the imminent Diamond and Pearl remakes? So are we. And that's why we've put together this piece to give you a primer on everything you need to know about the upcoming Pok\u00e9mon remakes.\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n Why Should Pok\u00e9mon Diamond and Pearl Be Remade?\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nDubbed Pok\u00e9mon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, the new remakes are long overdue. The original games were released a whole 15 years ago on the now-outdated Nintendo DS, with graphics that are rough and in need of an upgrade. With the Nintendo Switch's advanced graphical system, Diamond and Pearl will definitely see a dramatic revamp of their graphics, transitioning from pixels to full 3D models.\r\n\r\nThe remake comes at a very good time too, especially considering how divided the community was over Sword and Shield. Major complaints about these two games included a mediocre story, poorly-optimized gameplay, and subpar graphics that failed to fully utilize the graphical capabilities of the Nintendo Switch.\r\n\r\nBrilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl could potentially address these problems. Furthermore, it could even introduce further innovations to enhance the Sinnoh experience.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n Is Having a Pok\u00e9mon Diamond and Pearl Remake Advantageous for the Company?\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nRecently, Nintendo hasn\u2019t been able to satisfy many of its fans, owing to its decision to permanently discontinue Super Mario 3D All-Stars Collection. Yet with the Pok\u00e9mon Diamond and Pearl remakes, Nintendo could potentially regain its fans' trust and loyalty.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nIf Nintendo offers Game Freak the tools and resources they need to create excellently, it can regain fans\u2019 confidence and support. Although a single set of online games wouldn\u2019t compensate for Nintendo\u2019s shortcomings, it portrays the company\u2019s willingness to listen to its fans\u2019 feedback and frustrations. Bottom line, Pok\u00e9mon Diamond and Pearl\u2019s remake is crucial for regaining public confidence in both Game Freak and Nintendo.\r\n\r\n \r\nPok\u00e9mon Diamond and Pearl\u2019s Historical Importance\r\n\r\n\r\nWhen it comes to console popularity, the Nintendo DS was and continues to remain a best-selling gaming console for the company.
