  1. I wish these were made for 2ds instead, i don't much like playing pokemon games on switch tbh. I don't carry my switch around and only play in docked mode so it just doesn't feel the same.

  2. what kind of review is this? xD According to this review there are no flaws in this game so why 7 out of 10? like 90% of pokemon reviews online are only praising the positives without even touching the negatives for some reason.

  3. I need help, should I use
    Infernape, Staraptor, Luxray, Garchomp, Lucario, and Gallade.
    Or
    Infernape, Staraptor, Luxray, Garchomp, Floatzel, and Roserade
    BTW, (first time playing an actual Pokémon game)

  4. Im confused to why they remade the inferior version of that GEN when they had Platinum as a option… oh wait i know, so they can release 2 Pokemon games instead of one 😑

  5. Played pokemon my whole life, started with red on gameboy and went up from there playing each gen, idk If its because of experience from The games or showdown, but the game feels crazy easy, for me atleast.

  6. I don’t know man I’m still going to keep playing these games. I grew up on Pokémon Yellow and have not missed a core game since then. As long as they put out a game I’m gonna play it

  7. >Final massive difficulty spike when you reach Cynthia

    So…just like the original Diamond and Pearl when her Garchomp curbstomps you?

  8. {Chibi Art} – “But the style looks especially great when the camera zooms on” 🤯🤭🤮

    ^^^^This is what’s keeping me from buying the game, Why couldn’t they just do regular design like they did for Sword & Shield?

    The fact it’s almost 2022 and Pokémon battle revolution in 4K + texture packs blows these out of the water visually is pathetic…

    (PS: If you’re a grown man & like Chibi you probably like Loli stuff sorry not sorry 😬)

  9. Do you guys recommend to buy this game? A friend will gift me a game and I still can't decide between this and Yoshi's crafted world and Kirby Stat Allies 🥺

  10. I am looking forward to get both Pokemon brilliant diamond and Pokemon shining pearl games for Christmas🎄. I also would liked to play as Dawn and choose Piplup as my starter Pokemon so I can do better than the anime Dawn and what Piplup would never do. And that is catching more Pokemon and evolve Piplup into Prinplup and then to Empoleon.

    However when I was watching YouTube of any ideas what to expect on Pokemon brilliant diamond and Pokemon shining pearl, but when I was looking to find out about Wonder Trade that I've just found out today that at the moment is unavailable😱. I mean it isn't fair because I was looking forward to get both Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl games for Christmas and I was hoping to used Wonder Trade for any Pokemon I want. Now I'm going to have to wait in early January to hear more news at that what I though it's going to happen.
