    "Pokémon Center can confirm that, according to sources close to the company, remakes of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl , originally released in 2006 for the Nintendo DS, are in development for the Nintendo Switch .
    Pokémon Diamond and Pearl were the first games in the main Pokémon saga for the Nintendo DS. They started the fourth generation of Pokémon and introduced the Sinnoh region , as well as the initials Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup .
    The Pokémon Company plans to officially reveal the remakes of Pokémon Diamonds and Pearl for Nintendo Switch in February, according to sources close to the company. In addition, this new installment will be different from Pokémon Let's Go, the remake of Kanto released in 2018, maintaining the classic style of Pokémon capture, according to the Pokémon Center.
    The 25th anniversary of Pokémon will not be limited to the games of the main series. New Pokémon Snap will be released on April 30 and Katy Perry will collaborate with the company producing a theme song, along with other guest artists. They also plan a new show "Legends", of which more information should be revealed in the future."

    Seems like a safe bet even if this is an unconfirmed rumor. I imagine this will continue to increase the SwSh Pokedex along with it considering they must be on the same engine. And I bet before we know it, the full pokedex will be in the games, and people's biggest problem with Sword and Shield will finally be behind them. Thank god, because the lack of a full dex is far from Pokemon's biggest sin. Time to shed light on the real problems of the series.

    I would hold your breath on the expanding part. Since when interviewers asked about the gen 4 remakes during a SwSh interview post pokemon removal. One of the questions was essentially, would they be building off SwSh roster. And they wouldn't give a straight answer.
    In other words, we could possibly be looking at where one game has a set of accessible Pokemon. and the next game has a completely different list, scrapping out the ones from the previous game.

    I'm not saying that D&P will have the full SwSh dex, but I am saying that the additions to the dex in D&P will almost certainly get carried over to Sw and Sh via an update, considering the large update expansions the dex has already seen. It seems incredibly obvious to me that the full dex will eventually be in those titles, and Game Freak delaying the full extent of the dex over various updates was done in a way to try and keep players excited and invested. I don't think it was a great plan, but I can see what they were trying to do.

    eeeeehhhh
    in my opinion it's more so to keep you subscribed to pokemon home.
    Since, well, pokemon bank is apparently shutdown.
    Essentially really in my opinion it was a greed move during the time. Force you t
    If you had a fuck ton of pokemon, you were essentially guaranteed to be hooked into home to be able to store every single pokemon that isn't in SwSh since bank at the time was shutting down.
    Making you pay 15.99 per year.
    And I have a feeling the will not update the game with pokemon from Diamond and Pearl.

    The question I'm dying to know the answer to: Will this game look and perform better than Sw/Sh? Or will we get the same 3DS graphics upgraded from S/M? Guess we'll see.

    I'm just hoping they finally ditch the stupid character outlines, or go for a more cel-shaded cartoon look like they did for Zelda BotW.

    I suppose time will tell, but it seems the clear path they've been going down with Sword and Shield if you ask me. Guess in a year's time we'll know for sure.

    There's always FireRed and LeafGreen on GBA. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    They were fantastic remakes.

    I beat pokemon Platinum around 10 years ago but people really liked the D/P series? I think I liked B/W more than D/P

    but hey I'll take it if they make it

    I didn't care for gen 4 nearly as much as 2 and 3, or 5 part 2... but it was still decent.
