Ahead of the new Pokémon Presents, announcements for two new games were leaked. One of these was the long-rumored remakes of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Remake, while the other one was a brand new game from Game Freak that is also set in the Sinnoh Region but during the past and will attempt to create a new style of gameplay.
Nintendo has shared a trailer for this new Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Remake also confirming the starter Pokémon that will be available in it.
