Pokémon Presents February 26th - Diamond & Pearl remakes, Pokémon Legends Arceus (open world RPG)

Rumors and leaks are going wild, as the minutes count down to the awaited reveal of what The Pokemon Company has in store for the future of the franchise. Whether or not you believe the "leaks" that are being passed around, it's time to hand in your hype train ticket and board, as today's Pokemon Presents is just about to begin.

It begins.

We get a retrospective on how Pokemon has evolved, and the various media that it had over the years. Even the Pokemon Mini got a shoutout.

Tomorrow is the 25th anniversary of the Pokemon series.

First off is New Pokemon Snap gameplay. You can edit your photos with stickers and frames. Photos can be shared online.

Next are some events that will be held to celebrate the anniversary. There's a Gigantamax Pikachu raid in SwSh, Go will have a Kanto celebration, and Pokemon Cafe Mix will have free tickets. Pokemon Masters EX adds Leon and Charizard.

Finally, the next games.

It's a DS...Diamond and Pearl's intro screen...

Remakes confirmed! Just as the rumors said, they'll be in a chibi-fied form that emulates the sprite look of the originals, but in 3D. Battles will instead look like Sword and Shield's. Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl release Late 2021.

It's time for a new era...

It's a prequel to Diamond and Pearl, taking place in the ancient era of Sinnoh. The gameplay shows open fields where you catch Pokemon by sneaking around and throwing Pokeballs yourself. Arceus is teased at the end. This more action-based take on the franchise is called Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Releases early 2022.

The DPPt games will be "faithful remakes". ILCA is developing them, the team from Pokemon Home. Game Freak's Masuda will be involved, though. The Underground is shown, too, confirming that it'll be included.

Legends Arceus is a different take on Sinnoh, with Pokemon from other regions appearing as well. The village is your base, and your goal is to create the first Pokedex. There are normal turn-based Pokemon battles.

while performance maybe be debatable saying that visualy dp remakes are better than lets go or sword and shield is not lol.
I think you misunderstood, I was saying TemTem looks better than Let's Go or SwSh, not that BD/SP look better than those two.

yeah but after gamefreak had the lets go engine or sword and shield engine they went and made a remake that looks 10 times worse than the games they already had engine for, which made no sense, im guess they just wanted to get a rpg pokemon game for 2021 and that was easy and fast to make without much effort, now i which they just went with lets go developers and not with this studio that never made any actual game and are more of a support studio than a full game studio...

tbh pokemon lets go probably has the best visuals of any pokemon main game to date and its a switch exclusive where they actualy have the rights to use the engine, such a missed oportunity, lets go is chibbi done right on the switch, if ten ten can get teh look of lets go it will look as good or better than lets go/swsh

My guess with the Pokemon Legends Arceus has to do with back in the original pokemon diamond and pearl. The only way to get arceus was through a mystery gift. My guess is they are going to use that same strategy as they did with pokemon Rangers. Where the only way to get manaphy in diamond/pearl was through sending it over from Pokemon ranger. But than agian i might be wrong since this is just my guess. But that is also why i think why the pokemon Legends is kinda unclear over what its purpose would be.

games must have a prupose? that's some news...

I can't deal with the ammount of bitching over graphics. If you care about graphics so much why are you playing pokemon to begin with? why do you own a switch? you should be playing 8k 120fps games on PC MASTER RACE [/irony]

so its like saying final fantasy xv pocket edition is better becuase it will maintain the framerate lol.

obviously the overworld visuals are 10 times better on lets go vs dp remakes same for sword and shield, they basicaly did barebones 3d, obviosuly this will run more stable than a fullblown 3d title.

So you think links awakening remake looks better than botw becuase the performance and resolution is better? just because a game has a higher resolution/performance that doesnt make it better visually, as always you sacrifice visuals over resolution that is never gonna change.

pokemon lets go is a 720p handheld and 1080p docked sure it can drop afew frames here and there but still looks 10 times better

saying this

looks worse than this is ridiculous

The remakes look's much more worse than the Let's Go.

I think Temtem is infinitely more beautiful than these remakes (this video here is a clear example of that)

But despite the excellent artwork, I still think LetsGo and Sword / Shield have better graphics in general.

I think, would not buy this remake, better play on ds again (But for ppl that not played ds game it would be not bad)
Really not liked chibi, on 3ds remakes as\or they was still better... On 3ds, Carl! On system where almost all games was chibi...
And here we get after 2 good gens thin joke (Glad that battles not look as it was on original, or it would be double face palm)
Legends trailer not show much, only open world and catch\battle + tell that you need catch them all.
If they would add multiplayer there, that would be great (would not happen)
They should show\add more, or it would be fast become boring.
They should add explore\cooking\creating similar to botw or something to it.
Well, some story would be nice too :)

Here's my take as not a fan of Pokémon.

The DP remakes have an adorable art style and that's great, but that's all it has going for it.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus looked incredible with how it was essentially going to pull a Breath of the Wild on the Pokémon formula, and then they showed that the battle system was the same and I lost interest. I was hoping for an action RPG like Kingdom Hearts, or at the very least a form of the ATB system from Chrono Trigger, the SNES and PSX Final Fantasies, and Pokémon Masters.

I want a Gen. 5 remake.

Does anyone here forget that graphics don't matter if the gameplay is good
People who grew up with the NES or some other console from those days or earlier knows this, it's obvious. But kids these days (or people that think new=better by default) think that as technology advances, everything produced should be top notch or else it's "dated" and therefore obsolete. It's a sad mentality but that's the world we live in..

The people that thought new graphics=better are the same people that complain all the time when they're given something without understanding a situation and also hate old bands like the Beatles (I'm a fricking Beatles fan), Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, etc. and love Justin Bieber, bullshit rap artists, etc.

We already have gameplay with old one (and we fine with it), if they try make new game\remake we expect to see new features at same level or even better as pokemon eevee\sword have.
They try win new and old fans with this.
Old fans expect better version (not chibi limitations that give ds\3ds, f. even chibi on 3ds was much better), bcs loved old game and want that it would be polished.
New ppl on switch would see mobile game that not worth. And would buy other game
So, what we see. GF have L\L situations, only true fans would buy it and ppl that not expect much of it
I better play ds version, in 2d they look better. Like someone said story same, gameplay same. Graphic not important, but bad graphic\port important

Well, I'm sure that if it would come out as this, then we would see mods for cfw that change and make better textures\models in game.
And there can appear ds mod even xD
