The Countdown to Pokémon Sun & Moon is on. From now until November 18th, I’m taking a nostalgic walk through the Pokémon main series releases until the beautiful day I get my hands on the next Pokémon adventure!
Today, we’re talking about Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. Though I can’t rightly remember my first play-through of Diamond or Pearl, I know Platinum came out when I was in college. I know I was a little late to the DS party, as my first DS was the lite version, but I know that I got SUPER into Platinum. I played Platinum so much that my boyfriend at the time purchased a DS of his own because he got jealous of me playing this awesome game.
Generation 4 has the hands-down BEST starter Pokémon choices. I maintain this opinion to this very day.
Gen 4 was overall a good experience. It gave me similar feels to gen 3– solid games with new features followed by a souped-up version. Then, of course, amazing remakes… which we’ll talk about tomorrow.
For now, the tag!
Which Version: Diamond! Then Platinum. If memory serves, I think I played Pearl much later.
