The 25th anniversary of Pokémon, completed last Saturday (27), was celebrated by the Pokémon Company with the revelation of two new games, both with stories located in the fictional Sinnoh region. The biggest highlight is Pokémon Legends: Arceus. But, before commenting on it, it is worth mentioning the other title announced.ebc Pokemón celebrates 25 years with 2 new games: check it outebc Pokemón celebrates 25 years with 2 new games: check it out

Pokémon Brillant Diamond / Shining Pearl (Switch), due for release later this year, is expected remake of the fourth generation, Diamond & Pearl, originally released in 2006 for the Nintendo DS. Fans have been waiting for the Sinnoh region to return from Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Saphire that, in 2014, brought the Hoenn region back on the Nintendo 3DS. The novelty comes with an interesting detail: for the first time, a game from the main series (or remake of it) is not being made by Game Freak, but by a Japanese studio hitherto unknown, the ILCA. It is an almost exact copy of the original, in which the main change is the enhanced look in an isometric perspective. This promises to be the first title of the ILCA that, until then, had only supported games from different companies, such as Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, Dragon Quest XI and Yakuza 0. All development will be supervised by Game Freak, with the participation of the directors of the original games Junichi Masuda and Yuichi Ueda.

Game Freak, it is worth remembering, is the original creator of the adventures of Pikachu and company, having developed the first game in the series, Pokémon Red and Green, published by Nintendo. With an innovative formula, the game not only survived the Game Boy portable video game, which seemed to live its last years, but also started a business empire that has already surpassed US $ 100 billion (approximately R $ 560 billion).

The recipe worked so well that Game Freak repeated it in all sequences, with minor modifications and timid visual evolutions. Critical and sales success continued. The most recent title, Sword & Shield, surpassed the mark of 20 million units, behind only the Game Boy classics Pokémon Gold / Silver (23.1 mi) and Pokémon Red / Blue (31.68 mi).

Still, at least for the oldest fans, Pokémon increasingly looks more of the same. The innovation was restricted to other games licensed by the Pokémon Company, such as Pokémon Snap and more recently Pokémon Go. From Game Freak, the biggest novelty in recent years was the new method of capturing and meeting wild monsters introduced in the Let´s spin-off go Pikachu / Let´s Go Eevee. Some of these attributes were later implemented in Pokémon Sword & Shield and the Isle of Armor and The Crown Tundra expansions.
