Pokémon Shining Pearl's release date was narrowed down on Friday in the Pokémon Presents. While no exact date was given, it has been confirmed that the game will be available on the Nintendo Switch from late 2021.

Shining Pearl is a remake of the 2006 Pokémon Pearl. Along with Brilliant Diamond, these remakes of the fourth generation games will allow you to explore the Sinnoh region.

Pokémon Shining Pearl Release Date Information

While rumors of potential remakes of Pearl and Diamond have been floating around for a long time, recent teases on the official Pokémon Twitter page fanned these rumors back into a flame. Given that September 2021 will be the fifteenth anniversary of the Pearl and Diamond release, it is not so surprising that The Pokémon Company has chosen now to announce the remakes.

However, that is not all as although Shining Pearl and Brilliant Diamond will be available from late 2021, GameFreak is developing another game for the franchise: Pokémon Legends Arceus. This too has no exact release date, though it is expected to debut in early 2022.
