Pokémon Diamond

released on Sep 28, 2006

Pokémon Diamond Version and Pearl Version are role-playing games (RPGs) developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo DS. With the enhanced remake Pokémon Platinum, the games comprise the fifth installment and fourth generation of the Pokémon series of RPGs. First released in Japan on September 28, 2006, the games were later released to North America, Australia, and Europe over the course of 2007.

Like previous Pokémon games, Diamond and Pearl chronicle the adventures of a young Pokémon trainer as he/she trains and battles Pokémon while also thwarting the schemes of a criminal organization. The games add many new features, such as Internet play over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and changes to battle mechanics and Pokémon Contests, along with addition of 107 new Pokémon. The games are independent of each other but feature largely the same plot and while both can be played separately, it is necessary to trade between them in order to complete the games' Pokédexes.

It's good but Platinum is a much welcome improvement so not many reasons to play this version

lixo não gostei, pokemon legais mais tem que pegar muito item para pegá-los. muito pokemon de troca também e pouco pokemon da geração e por ultimo ;-;

lets be honest the game has way too many caves and the animations are so slow

Though I love a lot about this game, its problems are well noted, and I''m certain you have heard enough about the HP bar, and slow animations, the nasty comp scene, some of the routes being sloggish in nature, having only 3 or so fire type families, the length of the game, or how the game kind of forces you to certain places and restricting your exploration sometimes. But I'm not gonna bore you with that. What I am gonna bore you with is how this game has one of the downright coolest bad guy teams, and how the music is some of the best in the series - if you like piano and some really neat midi noises especially. Some of the new mons in this game are fantastic, with several old pokemon given new evolutions, such as Rosalia, Magmar, and Magnemite. The most important, and downright applause worthy changes this game brought about was the physical special split, which finally made many typings and Pokemon viable because you can have any type have any type of attack, letting many old mons you may have imported have plenty of new strategies to keep things fresh. Oh, and one last thing: screw that lady who gives you a haunter with an everstone, and then mocks you.

The original version of this is so insanely slow. The world and environment still draws me in every time, but Platinum is so much better.

First game I ever played as a kid. The music is fantastic, the world has character and it's a decent comfort food monster catcher and social game like most pokemon games with plenty to do pre and postgame but the slow engine makes it hard to come back to and midgame pokemon variaty is sadly abysmal. You're better off playing Platinum
