Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are the latest remakes in the series, returning to the Sinnoh region and reimagining the original DS titles with new graphics and brand new gameplay elements. The titles will release for Nintendo Switch on November 19, make sure you order early to nab the rare Manaphy egg.
Pokémon Legends Arceus
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a bold new step for the franchise, an open-world RPG that seems to take inspiration from The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild. You can encounter and battle Pokémon in a large open environment, set centuries ago in the Hisui region, which will one day become Sinnoh. The harsh weather has also helped certain Pokémon to either evolve or be granted new forms. Expect twists on the classic formula, and pre-order to grab that incredible Hisuian Growlithe Kimono.
