The Pokemon community is one of the most active in the video game industry, always waiting for new video games and with a high bar. Although there is a certain dissonance between the different sectors of it, all its members row in the same direction (towards quality) and they have no problem raising their voices in case of having different opinions from Nintendo.
The latest releases of Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! They did not convince the majority and it seems that The Pokemon Company has taken action on the matter. If the leaks that are coming from Japan are true, the remake of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl (which would hit the market in 2021) will maintain the traditional capture method, with no overtones that bring the cartridge closer to the Pokemon GO mechanism.
However, it should be remembered that these Kanto remakes were not part of Nintendo’s traditional line of remasters. That is, they were independent releases that did not follow the usual course of the saga, in which, if we apply logic, it was the turn of the Fourth Generation (remake of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl). However, in November 2018 a review of the First Generation arrived from an original point of view, yes, leaving aside the trilemma of the initial one.
The official announcements, for February 27
The different insiders have pointed to an official announcement by Nintendo for February 27, the day that coincides with Pokemon Day thus closing a nice circle. Still, nothing is known about the supposed remake of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, but surely we will have to choose between Turtwig, of the Grass-type, Chimchar, Fire, and Piplup, of type Water.
The reality is that this growing hype that is occupying the minds of Pokémon fans could be a great disappointment since no official source has yet hinted that the remake of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl is a reality. Nintendo could surprise with a Generation Ninth (which seems very rushed after the recent release of the Pokémon Sword and Shield expansions) or a Johto-based Pokemon, Let’s Go.
