Today, during a video presentation of Pokémon Presents, Tsunekazu Ishihara, Chairman and CEO of The Pokémon Company—Announced Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, Pokémon Shining Pearl, and Pokémon Legends: Arceus – new video games coming in the successful 25-year series. Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl will launch in late 2021, and Pokémon Legends: Arceus will launch in early 2022. All three games will be available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch console.
In 2006, Trainers were introduced to the Sinnoh region with the release of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl for the Nintendo DS system. Players can once again visit the Sinnoh region in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl, which are faithful remakes of two iconic Pokémon games. Pokémon Legends: Arceus will introduce fans to the Sinnoh region of yore – before the existence of Pokémon trainers and leagues. It is in this bygone era that players will embark on a whole new adventure to create the region’s first Pokédex.
“The trainers caught their first Pokémon in 1996 and began an adventure that spanned 25 years. Across eight regions, many different platforms, and countless Pokémon encounters, they’ve strived to be the best, ”Mr. Ishihara said. “We hope fans of all ages enjoy making new memories while exploring the Sinnoh region in these new games.”
More details on the highly anticipated new Pokémon Snap game were also shared in the video presentation, along with information about the special in-game events taking place to celebrate Pokémon’s 25th anniversary.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus
The fun of exploring while catching Pokémon and completing a Pokédex has always been at the heart of the Pokémon video game series. Pokémon Legends: Arceus was developed with the desire to deliver an experience infused with new action and RPG elements that go beyond the framework established so far, while also honoring the core gameplay of past Pokémon titles.
As trainers explore the natural expanses of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, they will encounter Pokémon that inhabit these awe-inspiring landscapes. To catch wild Pokémon, players can study Pokémon behaviors, sneak up to them, and then throw Poké Balls. Players can also battle wild Pokémon with their allied Pokémon. By throwing the Poké Ball holding their ally Pokémon near a wild Pokémon, players will enter battle seamlessly. This new angle of play aims to offer trainers an immersive experience.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus brings Trainers to the vast Sinnoh region as it existed in the past, long before the start of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl have been established. Rich in nature and with Mount Coronet towering at its heart, it’s a Sinnoh unlike anything Trainers have experienced before as they set out to create the region’s first Pokédex.
At the start of their adventure, Trainers can choose Rowlet, Cyndaquil, or Oshawott as their first partner Pokémon. These three Pokémon arrived with a Pokémon Professor, who met them on research trips to various regions.

New Pokémon Snap
New Pokémon Snap is a previously announced video game in which players will take on the role of a budding Pokémon photographer in the Lental region. There, they’ll work with area expert Professor Mirror on an ecological survey to photograph thriving Pokémon in the wild. The game will be available on April 30, 2021 on the Nintendo Switch family of consoles.
Wild Pokémon thrive on the islands of the Lental region, where environments can vary widely, making them a variety of habitats where different Pokémon expressions and behaviors can be observed. Players will be able to grab their attention by playing a tune or throwing fluff. They will also be able to use an Illumina Orb (an invention of Professor Mirror) on Pokémon to witness something out of the ordinary. They can even use their cameras to perform scans, which can help them find hidden Pokémon or inspect their surroundings. As players research a course, their research level will increase and they will be able to discover Pokémon that act in different ways. Trainers can even encounter Legendary Pokémon or Mythical Pokémon.
The score of a photo will depend on the subjects’ poses, their size, their position in front of the camera and their position in the frame. Each photo will get one to four stars, indicating how common or rare the displayed behavior is. Players will need to take plenty of photos to fill their Photodex, which is their collection of Pokémon photographs.
Photos taken during the search can also be saved in a personal album, which is separate from the Photodex. When a lesson is over, players can use the re-snap feature to adjust the brightness, blur, zoom, and other aspects of their recently taken photos. Once the photos are saved in the personal album, a photo editing mode will allow players to personalize their photos with stickers, frames and filters.
New Pokémon Snap also offers several online features that allow players to share photos and compete with others around the world through ranking systems.
