Pokemon Brilliant Diamond leaked online ten days prior to release

dial.png

The third time's the charm, as the third major Nintendo release in the past month has been leaked onto the internet a good few days prior to the official launch date. Following Metroid Dread and Mario Party Superstars, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond is floating about online, both in .NSP and .XCI form, and it looks like the game is able to be booted and playable in some form through Nintendo Switch emulator Ryujinx as well. While the leaked version of Brilliant Diamond comes in at around 4.30GB, there is a scheduled 8GB day-one update that won't be available until the launch date, November 19th.

As always, it's important to remember that GBAtemp's ToS do NOT allow linking to warez or illegal content, so please be mindful!

I think you get a mew for playing let's go Eevee/pika and a Jirachi for playing sword and shield

Basically it's reading your save data
So if you have a save file for both games does it give you both mew and a Jirachi per game or you pick witch one or it gives you a random one.

If Nintendo could nail the people behind these leaks they would big time. It depends on how well they hid themselves the. Nintendo would certainly make an example out of the leaker if they knew who they were

I haven't played it for long and lacking the day 1 update what I played is essentially an unfinished beta of the game but so far my impression of the game is that it's not worth your time or money. The environments look good enough but the character and Pokemon models are ugly. You can't move 360 degrees with the joycons. Your movement is locked to 22.5 degree intervals when running and 45 degree intervals when walking.

Don't spend too much money?

its pokemon. it only prints money. Pokemon is a Cash-Cow Miltank
It nintendont how can they print money with very little effort.....

Keep recycling its old shit but with slighly better graphics.

Me personally i would have rather seen the originals remade in this style, red/green/blue and yellow.

That's when pokemon had style, now it's just like they have a random generator, they throw in its base type, weakeness, stong points and ta da the computer craps out a new desing and name for some fucking disgusting thing they call a pokemon.

They long lost the touch but carried on because the loyal sheep follow the flock.

Next gen i bet we will see a simple grey rectangle with googly eyes and its can pass off as a pokemon lol

Lol, yeah. Remake Gen 1 a third time. That'll go over well. Says the person who (in the exact same post) complains about quote "recycling its old shit but with slighly better graphics" only to follow it with how you would rather they reycle a slightly older shit with slightly better graphics... even though they literally already did on the exact same console XD

Thats kinda the problem with pokemon this era, not b/c new gen doesnt appeal as much as the older ones its b/c we seem to be ok with remakes for multiple reasons. To be fair it only makes GF lazier since all they have to do is upgrade the graphics and just keep the same story with a few new content. 2 Glasses of milk with only 1 cookie for $60.

like expected they did the bare minimum, no megas/gigantamax, no platinium content, they basicaly just made the game in 3d and called it a day, this is the worst pokemon remake ever done imo.

they added no new mechanics or areas

firered/leafgreen new sevi island area plus updated graphics and mechanics matching 3rd gen
soulsilver/heartgold they did kanto justice and added alot of missing stuff, added small story for geovanny and all the graphics and mechanics of gen 4
omegaruby/alpha saphire new gen 6 graphics, added new mechanics and new mega evolutions, new delta episode, new way to fly roaming and etc.

THIS well they made pokemons and overworld in chibi 3d and done, not using current generation graphics or even mechanics, no new story episode no nothing...
I wanna talk about ORAS there; when people were talking about "HoEnN rEmAkEs CoNfIrMeD" all those years ago, they were hoping for/expecting an Emerald remake, or at least for the remakes to take elements from Emerald - like what HGSS did. In those remakes, yeah the main Legendaries are Ho-Oh/Lugia, but it still incorporated the Eusine and Suicune plotline, Buena's radio show, the secret Unown messages, the Dragon Den quiz, and expanded on Crystal's Battle Tower (by copy/pasting Sinnoh's Battle Frontier, but still a goddamn Battle Frontier).

Compared to this, ORAS had...pretty much nothing from Emerald. It had fewer Trick Master puzzles than RS (6, compared to 8); it only worked in Rayquaza by shoehorning in a short postgame plot ("Delta Episode"), instead of managing to tie it into the main story by having Rayquaza calm down the respective titan or something; copied over the awful Battle Maison from XY instead of keeping RS's Tower or bothering to work in Emerald's Battle Frontier; no Gym Leader rematches; no Mirage Tower for the Claw/Root Fossils; no Emerald-exclusive areas like the Desert Underpass or expanded Safari Zone areas or Terra/Marine Cave; Team Magma's hideout is still in waterfront Lilycove instead of the volcanic Jagged Pass which makes no sense; fewer Trainers in Gyms compared to Emerald; no Trainer Hill.

Also, the Eon Flute was awarded far too late to be useful. Not only is using it and summoning the Lati slower than Fly's animation, but soaring around is a rather slow way to traverse the region; it's only really useful for Mirage spots, and if those are already done or you don't care, the Flute is worthless.
If it was given before you got HM02, then it'd have some use as the only way to 'quickly' get around the western part of Hoenn, but...no, it's given after the entire Groudon/Kyogre fiasco, long after HM02's been available.

No Megas? No Platinum content?

HARD. PASS.

Goddamnit, Pokémon, third letdown in a row. You died for me in 2019, when Sword/Shied shat on everything that made this series interesting and enjoyable. This could've been a resurrection, but you fucked it up.

the lack of platinum content and the super-chibi aesthetic are pretty high hurdles for me to get over. I'll probably beat it quickly and never look back.

...though maybe the day 1 update has this content?

but at this rate of quality, I won't even bother with the eventual black and white remakes.

How did SW/SH was bad? Was the game rushed yes it was... and the "wild area" made no sense but if they did it correctly we could be heading in the right direction but the fact of the matter is pokemon went past it's prime... instead of adding new pokemon they need to focus on making a better story and widening the reigion

ex.. GTA III / GTA IV / GTA Liberty City Stores/ GTA Lost and the Dammed and Ballot of Gay Tony

See what I did? Same reigion but different Story they need to focus more on story telling

oras was still much better than this, they atleast used current generation graphics and mechanics and just becuase you didnt like the new episode or features they did exist and they added some more mega evolutions which were all the rage back then.

this one doesnt have sword or shield graphics or mechanics, doesnt have any new modified content or anything, they simply turned 2d into 3d and call it a day. this is still by far the worst pokemon remake i ever saw, heck pokemon lets go is a better remake overall than this, atleast they did some changes and made the game frash imo, this one its just empty.

Gamefreak didnt even bothered to develop this and it shows, they gave it to a studio and said see this game? make it 3d on the switch and they did, obviously they did what they were told and this is basicaly a barebones remake, its almost just a remaster tbh.
