Fans have been dying to see Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes ever since Sword and Shield were announced. It has become a tradition of sorts to have one (technically two) Pokemon remakes per Nintendo console, which started on the GameBoy Advance with Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen. The Pokemon Company is fully aware of this as they may have just teased the long-awaited Diamond and Pearl remakes fans have been expecting.

On Twitter, they got fans' hopes up with a post that starts with “confirmed” before talking about how today is the 13-year anniversary of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. While some might just see this as an online celebration, a lot of fans see through this since they wouldn’t begin one of their milestones with “confirmed.” We doubt remakes of Diamond and Pearl will be coming out this year but next year is always possible.



The fourth generation of Pokemon games has its fair share of fans and detractors. While a lot of fans adore the designs of Pokemon in this generation, a lot of people feel that these two games didn’t do enough to differentiate themselves from previous generations. Things did get better with Pokemon Platinum but fans tend to like Black and White better when it comes to classic Pokemon DS games.

Right now, the Nintendo Switch is home to Sword and Shield, along with Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee when it comes to Pokemon games. There’s also the fighting game spinoff Pokken Tournament. Will the system soon add the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes to their Pokemon library? We’ll have to wait and see.
