A private Twitter account has increased speculation that we get Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes later this year. Fans discovered the “PokemonDP15th” Twitter account earlier today just hours after the Twitter account was activated. The Twitter account triggered memories of last year’s “SuperMario35th” discovery, which turned out to be a real Nintendo Twitter account created to promote various celebrations of Mario’s 35th birthday. Fans also pointed it out Pokemon Diamond and Pearl is about to celebrate its 15th anniversary later this year, which explains the account’s namesake.
However, while most rumors seem to point Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes are a real thing, many Pokemon fans think this Twitter account is a fake. After all, it seems convenient that the account was discovered less than a day after it was created and set up in an identical way to the Super Mario 35th account. In addition, The Pokemon Company (which operates its social media separately from Nintendo) has never created a secondary Twitter account for a particular Pokémon game, such as the popular Pokemon Let̵
While this particular Twitter account is (as we suspect) a fake, there is more credible evidence that Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes are coming. Eye-eye observers discovered the domain diamondpearl.pokemon.com, leading to a banned website made private by The Pokemon Company’s webmaster. It’s also the dividend of various insiders who have anything but confirmed that the games are coming, creating enough smoke to make most fans believe that there is definitely a Gen 4 remake fire behind it all.
While we wait for confirmation of the next Pokémon games, there are some other celebrations that fans can look forward to. The Pokemon Snap will be released in a little over two months, and other product collaborations and connections are also planned throughout the year.
