Review Nintendo finally brings a true Pokemon game to its DS handheld with the release of Pokemon Diamond / Pokemon Pearl...The appearance of characters has been improved, but the process in which you play as a rookie Pokemon trainer hasn't been disturbed. As either a boy or a girl, players begin their quest to the Pokemon League Championship by meeting a new Professor, picking between three initial creatures and collecting hundreds more to completely fill out a Pokedex. The game's Pokedex accounts for the 151 new and old Pokemon, which brings the National Pokedex number to a whopping 493...There's a lot to do in Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl, which looks as good as a top-down Pokemon game is going to get for some time. It also benefits more than any other sequel in the series from a predecessor due to online capabilities.

Diamond or Pearl: For the most part, whether you play one game or the other, the gameplay will be the same. But there are several differences between the two versions. Most importantly, there are a handful of Pokemon that are version-exclusive. For example, if you're looking to complete your Pokedex in Pokemon Diamond, you'll have to trade your Pokemon with a Pokemon Pearl game. The full list of version-exclusive Pokemon hasn't yet been announced, but Palkia and Dialga are two examples. Other Pokemon may be rare in one version of the game, such as Mime Jr. and Bonsly. Whether you're new to the world of Pokemon, a Pokemon fanatic or maybe someone who hasn't played a Pokemon game in a while, Pokemon Diamond and Pearl are guaranteed to get you hooked!
Pokemon Genders: Gender has long been a part of the Pokemon series, but until now male and female Pokemon have looked the same. Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl introduce visual differences for Pokemon depending on their gender. For example, a male Wooper will have more horns than a female. Even the most well-known Pokemon, such as Pikachu, are getting a graphical update. There are still some Pokemon that look the same in both genders, some that can only be male or female, and some (particularly the Legendaries) that don't have a gender at all.
Legendary Pokemon: Legendary Pokemon like Lugia, Ho-oh, Groudon, Kyogre, Suicune, Raikou and Entei have always been sought after by Pokemon Trainers. These mysterious creatures are one-of-a-kind, and very powerful. In the DS version, the Legendaries are larger than life - Dialga is an enormous blue Pokemon that is said to be able to manipulate time, while the giant purple Palkia is said to have the power to distort space. Not much else is known about these Pokemon, except that they can only be caught in their respective games.
Meet the Starters: Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl continue a Pokemon RPG tradition by having you make one of the most important decisions in the game right away: Picking a Pokemon with which to begin your journey. Three all-new Pokemon are yours to choose from - Fire-type Chimchar, Water-type Piplup, and Grass-type Turtwig. You won't be able to catch these Pokemon in the wild. To catch every Pokemon, you'll have to trade with other Trainers to get the two Pokemon you didn't select. The Pokemon you choose can have a big impact on your adventure in several ways, so choose wisely. To see the three new starters, click "Art Gallery" in the menu on the left.
Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection: One of the best aspects of Pokemon games is the ability to trade and battle with other Trainers, and Nintendo DS allows you to connect with other Pokemon fans wirelessly. What's even more intriguing is that Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl will be compatible with Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, allowing you to trade and battle with other Trainers around the world. The games will also feature voice chat capabilities, so you'll have no problems communicating with your online friends.
Pack Your Bags: Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl take place in an all-new region called Sinnoh. When you set off on your travels, you'll be able to play as either a boy or girl Trainer. Pokemon fans have caught glimpses of Mime Jr., Lucario, Munchlax and Weavile in Pokemon movies, and these Pokemon will be debuting in this adventure. Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl will challenge you to explore the Sinnoh region in an incredibly deep RPG adventure. Before your quest is complete, you'll meet over 100 new Pokemon and challenge countless Trainers along the way. Like previous core Pokemon titles, these games feature an engrossing storyline and well-balanced RPG action.
The Poketch: When you're out exploring the many corners of Sinnoh, the lower screen accesses your Poketch, a multifunctional tool that Trainers will find indispensable. The Poketch is basically a small computer that stores a variety of miniature applications. When you start out, the Poketch is limited to a handful of uses - it's a watch, a pedometer, a Pokemon-status checker, and a calculator. As you progress through the game, you'll find more applications, including a note pad and an item finder. There are 20 applications to discover, and you'll have to put in some serious footwork to find them all.
Time to Play: When Pokemon Gold and Silver introduced a real-time clock, Pokemon fans absolutely loved it. It seemed destined to become a staple of Pokemon games, but when Ruby and Sapphire came around, the feature disappeared. Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl reintroduce this system in a major way. A 24-hour cycle is divided into five phases: morning, day, evening, night and late night. Certain Pokemon are most likely to appear during particular phases of the day. A Pokemon's area info in the Pokedex depicts a sun on the bottom screen. If you drag it across the sky-like timeline, you'll be able to see where the Pokemon will appear and at what times.
Touching Gameplay: The DS's touch screen has improved on the Pokemon gameplay systems in a number of ways. When you're choosing an attack, touch-screen buttons display standard information - the move name, the move type, and how many PP you have left. The item-select screen is broken down into categories, and all of the items are clearly organized within each section. The changes don't amount to actual differences in how battles play out, but they will help you to manage your items and moves better than before. If you prefer to use the Control Pad and buttons to select your next move, you can do that as well. Outside of battle, the touch screen plays other big roles. While you're out exploring the far reaches of Sinnoh, the lower screen accesses your Pokemon Watch, known as the Poketch. You can also use the stylus to interact with the Pokedex. The list of Pokemon appears on the top screen, and you can spin a wheel that looks like a giant Poke Ball to browse the Pokedex list. These are just a couple of the roles the touch screen serves. You'll discover many more as you play the game.
