Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl launch on Nintendo Switch on December 19. It’s less than a month away, but it feels like an eternity for Gen 4 lovers who have been hoping for these games for years. To ease the impatience, you can check out the latest BDSP trailer below. It highlights some of the Sinnoh Region’s Gym leaders, introduces the top-ranking members of Team Galactic, and gives us a glimpse of some Legendary Pokémon. It also confirms that the outfits from Platinum will return, but there’s a catch.
New BDSP trailer
Gym leaders Team Galactic
The Sinnoh Region has eight Gym leaders to battle, and the latest BDSP trailer highlights two of them. Candice hails from Snowpoint City and favors Ice-type Pokémon while Volnker resides in Sunyshore City and specializes in Electric-type Pokémon. After this, we get a look at Team Galactic’s three Commanders: Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. With middle management out of the way, it’s on to the top man himself, and Cyrus is introduced as Team Galactic Boss. Finally, the new trailer shows off the trio of Legendary Pokémon that slumber beneath Sinnoh’s lakes. Their names aren’t shown here, but longtime fans will recognize them as Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf.
Pokémon Platinum outfits revealed
In the closing seconds of the BDSP trailer, The Pokémon Company revealed that the outfits from Pokémon Platinum will be available as a pre-order bonus. It’s not clear if those who do not pre-order will have an opportunity to unlock these outfits later. According to the small print, you’ll be able to acquire these clothes approximately two hours into the game via Mystery Gift. You have until February 21, 2022, to claim your prize.
