In 2006, Trainers were introduced to the Sinnoh region with the release of the Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl games on the Nintendo DS system. Players can once again visit the Sinnoh region in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl, which are faithful remakes of two iconic Pokemon games. Pokemon Legends: Arceus will introduce fans to the Sinnoh region of old - before the existence of Pokemon Trainers and Pokemon Leagues. It’s in this long-gone era that players will embark on an entirely new adventure to create the region’s first Pokédex.
