Not only did we get a brand new trailer for Pokemon Legends: Arceus this morning, but the Pokemon team also released a new trailer for the upcoming Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl games. In this video, we get a good look at some of the big features we can expect in these remakes.
The larger part of the trailer focuses on the Poketch app, which is an in-game app that we can use for a variety of purposes on our journey. It has many functions, such as counting our character’s steps (which is useful for egg hatching), dowsing abilities, and checking our Pokemon’s statuses.
One new feature of the Poketch app is that it includes an HM ability to make using our Pokemon’s Hidden Moves a lot faster. For example, standing in front of a bush and using the Poketch HM app can allow us to cut it down, as long as we have a Pokemon that knows the move.
Next, the Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl trailer gives us a brief overview of Poffins, which can be mixed with ingredients in order to feed to our Pokemon. This will raise their stats to help their performance in Pokemon contests.
We also see a repurposed Amity Square, which is an area in which we can take up to six of our Pokemon our for a stroll. If one Pokemon following behind you wasn’t enough, this should do the trick.
Finally, the new trailer gives us an overview of several of the characters we can expect to meet in the game. If you played the original, these faces should be familiar to you; if not, the trailer introduces us to who they are.
You can watch this new trailer for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl in its entirety below.
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl will release on Nov. 19 for the Switch.
