We’ve been hearing whispers about Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Remake for a while now. In fact, it was one of the most anticipated games for February’s Nintendo Direct 2021. But, after a rather disappointing Nintendo Direct and no mention of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Remake, all eyes were now set on February 27, Pokemon Day. This year, incidentally, also happens to be the 25th Anniversary of Pokemon, making the Diamond and Pearl Remake all the more important.
However, amidst all the speculations, Centro Pokemon dropped a ‘not-so-subtle’ hint pointing at the next major Pokemon announcement.
They won’t have to hold out until Pokémon Day on February 27 for the big news they’ve been waiting for.
See you next week.Translation of Tweet Text by u/SexyElf77 on Reddit
According to the speculation by Centro Pokemon, we should be expecting official news of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Remake anytime now, as of writing this post.
On the other hand, Pokemon is also gearing up their silver jubilee. Rapper Post Malone is performing in a virtual concert on Pokemon Day. The stream starts at 7 PM EST and you can tune in for free on Youtube, Twitch, and Pokemon.com/25.
If I had to take a rough, Farfetch’d guess on the announcement date based on the information presented above, I’d say that Pokemon might announce Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Remake on 24th February 2021.
Here’s why I think so:
The official Pokemon account has been hyping us up with posts like “Just 8 more days (till Pokemon’s Silver Jubilee)”. On every such post, the corresponding generation’s starters are in the poster. So “8 days to go” featured 8th Gen starters, “7 days to go” featured 7th Gen, and so on. Based on that, the post on 24th February 2021 will feature 4th Gen starters, which were first introduced in Diamond and Pearl.
So, if Centro Pokemon’s guess is correct and we are in line to receive a Pokemon announcement before the anniversary, then 24th February 2021 is the day! Of course, all this is speculation while the leaks should be taken with a grain of salt.
