Rumor: Potential Pokémon Diamond and Pearl remakes to include an ‘Arceus Episode’

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl remakes Arceus Episode

Next week marks the 25th anniversary of the Pokémon series, and fans are wondering what developer Game Freak has in store for us. It seems like everyone is under the assumption that the next games in the series will be Pokémon Diamond and Pearl remakes. There have been all sorts of rumors and speculation regarding all this, and Centro Pokémon, a Spanish Pokémon news site, is claiming that these remakes will include an “Arceus Episode,” which is apparently similar to the Deoxys / Delta Episode in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. They also claim that there are no plans for a Pokemon collection.

For now, I wouldn’t take this information seriously. Game Freak has proven to be unpredictable when it comes to Pokémon, so there’s no knowing for sure whether or not Pokémon Diamond and Pearl remakes even exist, let alone include an Arceus Episode.

Centro Pokemon previously reported that Diamond and Pearl remakes would be announced sometime this month, but apparently this new Arceus Episode information comes from a different source. If information on the former is ultimately accurate, we are likely to hear something on Pokémon Day, Feb. 27. We will keep you updated with more information. In the meantime, there are plenty of Pokémon festivities we know for sure are happening, such as the Post Malone digital concert.
