Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Speculation/Discussion Thread!

Auraninja

Eh, ragazzo!
The idea that BDSP having only Generation 1-4 Pokemon is a real possibility. Heck it may be even likely.

But I don't think we should assume that. If you want to temper expectations, fine, but in a vacuum, we don't know anything yet.

Also, this topic is tired. I just wanted to throw my two cents in because I saw some recent posts about it.

I mean I wouldnt mind more pokemon other than gen 4. But it is a remake. Tho even Lets Go featured Meltan and Melmetal.

Only 1-4 gen is tolerable (still sucks tho). But if we cant use Sylveon then that would really suck.

I wonder if we will able to evolve Eevee into Glaceon and Leafeon with stones, like in Swsh
I think it will be a similar situation to what happened with Feeba in ORAS.

Where in ORAS your able to evolve Feebas by maxing out it’s beauty stat and then leveling it up or you can trade it while it’s holding a Prism Scale.

So I think when it comes to evolving Eevee into Leafeon and Glaceon in BDSP that you can do it by taking your Eevee and leveling it up near a moss or ice rock respectively or you can just use a Leaf Stone or Ice Stone respectively.

They dont even have to try anymore, that is the sad thing. The heart has been out of pokemon for a while.
Been out since the end of Gen 5.

Their heart's not out. Your heart's just stuck.

It's time you got out of the past and moved on. You don't have to like the newer games, but don't accuse Game Freak of lacking heart because they're not making what you want.

Ironic thing about this is that I actually hate the older games. Except Gen 4 and 5. And for newer games, I only liked ORAS and USUM. The rest I just see as usually failures especially the XY games.

Then the problem clearly isn't them. It's you.

You just don't care for the games. Once again, that is neither their fault nor their problem. I really do hope you like BDSP.
 
Going with Shining Pearl and picking Piplup for my first run. - Similar to how my second Pokemon game ended up being Pokemon Pearl and I picked Piplup as my starter.

My main game’s gonna be Brilliant Diamond, since Diamond was my first gen 4 game :) I want to pick Turtwig since it was my starter back then, but it’s been ages since I’ve used a Piplup, so I’m torn haha. When I get around to Shining Pearl, I’ll be using Chimchar first, though, for sure. I can’t wait for them to be out!

When BDSP was announced I kept flip flopping between Turtwig and Chimchar before deciding on Turtwig. Was planning on using Infernape in Legend but Hisuian Growlithe came and stole the Fire spot, lol

I'm going with Brilliant Diamond too for the same reason.

I actually played Pearl the most, and hadn't played Diamond since I first had it in 2007. Thus, I want to experience it again.

I never put much though about which version to choose... They are 99 % the same game...
It was more important to met when choosing Sun over Moon, cuz I didn't want the night and day hours flipped

The battle themes sound so good.

I even saw a Croconaw statue. I hope Gen 2 starters are available early.

Was kinda expecting they put Looker in there. Not a sign of him.
There are also statues for Machamp, Rhyperior, and the Sinnoh starters.

So I wonder if there is going to be a statue for every gen 1-4 mon barring maybe legendary and mythical Pokémon so that you can get almost all the gen 1-4 Pokémon in the game without having to transfer them in.

Of course I wouldn’t be surprised if some statues wind up being version exclusive.

It will also be interesting to see if they make any of the gen 1-3 legendary and mythical Pokémon available to catch in the games somehow.
