Product Description

Revisit the Sinnoh region and the story of the Pokémon Pearl Version game

Experience the nostalgic story from the Pokémon Pearl Version game in a reimagined adventure, Pokémon™ Shining Pearl, now on the Nintendo Switch™ system! Adventures in the Pokémon Shining Pearl game will take place in the familiar Sinnoh region. Rich in nature and with mighty Mount Coronet at its heart, Sinnoh is a land of many myths passed down through the ages. You’ll choose either Turtwig, Chimchar, or Piplup to be your first partner Pokémon and then set off on your journey to become the Champion of the Pokémon League. Along the way, you’ll be able to encounter the Legendary Pokémon Palkia.

Adventure together with the Pokémon that appeared in the Pokémon Pearl Version game. Players of the original games can revisit familiar places and relive familiar scenes, while first time players can enjoy plenty of fun encounters and surprises that the Sinnoh region has to offer. The original story and the scale of the Sinnoh region's towns and routes have been faithfully reproduced. This remake has also been revitalized with some of the player-friendly features of modern Pokémon games and up-close-and-personal Pokémon battle scenes.

Whether you played Pokémon Diamond Version or Pokémon Pearl Version back in the day or you're encountering these games for the first time, there's something for everyone to enjoy.

The only thing I hate is the fact that I can’t customize your hideout like it’s a secondary home, the statues sort of ruined the underground experience for me. But overall it’s pretty good.

I owned this title before, however hadn’t played it yet due to my switch being messed up. I bought this for a friend who had only played Zelda. They have told me repeatedly that they love it and we have made a fee trades. It makes me so happy to see that a game/franchise that brought me joy as a child can do so for someone else who is older.

This is a pretty much a copy of the original DS titles. Same story, playing style, etc. The change to 3-D makes the overworld look a little odd but it’s charming. The battle animations and expanded underground areas are personal favorites. That doesn’t deter how boring and repetitive the gameplay can be, though. It plays as a standard Pokémon game: slog through some story and beat gyms with little challenge. At some point there is little fun in running around the map post-game. Taking a break and returning to your old team or maybe starting up a new challenge can make it enjoyable for another spell. If you enjoyed the originals, this is an alright way to revisit old favorites.

Great game for pokemon fans but it has no real innovation from the original or even other games in the series

Honestly one of my favorite games for my DS Lite and the improved graphics makes the experience all the more exciting. Great segway to Legends Arceus!

Q:
How long will the game be? (ex: 5 hours, 10 hours, 20 hours, etc.)
pleasebeverylongdeargod1 year ago
A:
Hard to say each player moves at their own pace but if I had to ball park it then I’d say 20-40 hours for the main story 50+ if you are trying to 100% everything
