Pokémon Brilliant Diamond's release date was partly confirmed Friday in the Pokémon Presents showcase. Along with Shining Pearl, Brilliant Diamond is a re-make of the fourth generation games that were originally released on the Nintendo DS in 2006.

In this game, trainers will be able to return to explore the Sinnoh region and with it, different Pokémon. While rumors of the remakes have been around for a long time, they became a little more concrete in the past week as hints on the official Twitter page sparked excitement in fans.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond Release Date Information

However, despite the debut of the trailer in the Pokémon Presents, the closest we came to a release date was late 2021. Not surprising given that the Pokémon franchise will be celebrating 25 years in 2021 - a fact in which they are celebrating with numerous events and concerts - it is understandable that fans are still a little frustrated with no exact date yet.

Despite this rather wishy-washy release date, Brilliant Diamond is not the only Pokémon game coming out this year. As GameFreak are developing Pokémon Legends: Arceus, it is not surprising that another games developer (ILCA) are working on Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Hopefully, we might see the games just in time for the holiday season to begin.
