Feel free to post anything about the Pokémon™ BDSP games here

After skipping 4 generations of Pokémon™ games, I've returned back to where I started; back to the Sinnoh region, in the upcoming newest remakes Pokémon™ Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon™ Shining Pearl.
With nostalgia of playing the original games on an r4 coming back to me, I have now decided to play more "seriously" this time.
Instead of just having a team of my starter Pokémon, evolved into a 1-hit K.O. machine, surrounded by HM slaves, I want to look into competitive Pokémon; learn fundementals on good EV spread, team compositions, movesets, etc.

Anyone out there that can guide me, or even just to trade/fight Pokémon with when wi-fi trades/battles come out
Also, if you're planning to play the newest remakes, what are your goals for them?

It's the summer of 2008,
You lay in bed on a warm July night as you flip open your nintendo DS to play pokemon diamond/pearl after your parents have gone to sleep.
You don't have a worry in the world. Life is good.

i'd be willing to teach you or anyone else the basics of competitive pokemon. it wouldn't necessary translate into in-game that much since they're not really designed for min/maxing that much, but this knowledge i've got rattling around in my head could be good for something. azazel#6897

ya the whole ev spread and maximising shit is overkill for in-game playthrough, end of da day its still a kids game. if u wna create artificial challenge try dump ur starter / dont use items in battle (or at all) / turn off the setting that tells u what theyre gna switch in. only then would u maybe need to start considering dat stuff. otherwise u can just abuse potions and stat boosting items while spamming whatever op move u have access to.

I would try use an original team idea like: Infernape, Luxray, Staraptor, Garchomp, Floatzel and Lucario.

Pretty sure this has never been done before let me know what you guys think!!!!

Pokemon diamond was the first pokemon game i took a little more seriously than pokemon blue, but this was at a time i was in elementary school. Keep in mind i got 7 badges in diamond and 4 in blue. Diamond remake = my childroom reborn

Considering the game is made in unity I'm v excited for the rom hacking implications of this release

mustardoverlordam I the only one who thinks the remake looks like absolute dogshit

there is a very short list of improvements the remakes did
-revamped underground
-kept the new exp system
-kept the new learnsets
-HMs no longer required to be learned
-pretty good battle animations

everything else about the games is so lazy. there are multiple game breaking bugs discovered on day 1, route encounters and trainer pokemon + movesets are basically the same, same weird map flow that diamond and pearl had instead of the gyms being in order like in platinum. level curve isn't accounting for the new exp system imo. somehow fire types still hella limited - only options are chimchar, houndoom, and ponyta. i haven't passed valor lakefront yet so this is all that i have to say for now.

the strangest part is that the pokemon in the underground do follow the new level curve and are a much bigger challenge than anything you can find above ground

Peteseems like there's a lot of stuff that people hate but i never played gen 4 and i'm having a blast

in addition to what spu said my main issues are

1) I don't like the chibi 3d artstyle at all though this is subjective

2) compared to the gen 1 gen 2 and gen 3 remakes they really didn't add a lot of new content at all

3) they didn't even do the cheat that other remakes have done and add content from the 3rd game- a lot of good stuff from platinum is not in here

the gen 4 games are pretty classic so if it's your first time it still has that going for it but I wanted more for a remake!
