This weekend, February 27, the Pokémon series celebrates 25 years since the launch of the original Game Boy titles.
There have already been rumors and now it looks like the official Pokémon Twitter account is joining the fun. Currently it does a countdown with different generations of pocket monsters. With four days left, he shared the following tweet and said “Let’s go, Sinnoh”.
Despite the fact that the same account has referenced other Pokémon games and generations in its daily countdown, this particular tweet has some fans quite excited.
The Sinnoh region was first introduced in the next generation next door Pokémon Diamond & Pearl for Nintendo DS.
In case you forgot, last month, Spanish fan site Centro Pokémon confirmed that Switch remakes of the DS titles Pokémon Diamond & Pearl were under development and would be unveiled around Pokémon Day on February 27.
“The Pokémon Center can confirm that, according to sources close to the company, the remake of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, originally released in 2006 for the Nintendo DS, is under development for the Nintendo Switch.”
A much older rumor dating back to 2019 suggested that remakes of Diamond and Pearl would include “Let’s Catch” (the catch mechanic first mentioned in Pokémon: Let’s Go game).
If that’s not enough already, it looks like Poké Ball Plus, first released with the Let’s Go games, will get a timely reprint:
Remember, we’re just days away from Pokémon’s 25th anniversary, so if there are announcements like this, you’ll not have to wait long. What do you make of this? Leave a comment below.
