In addition to Pokémon Legends: Arceus, les remakes Sparkling Diamond Pokémon and Sparkling Pearls were also treated to new revelations today. This time, The Pokémon Company decided to show the Pokémontre and how his comeback was adapted for the Switch. The Pokémontre will always contain several useful applications such as the Object radar to find hidden objects, handy shortcuts to use the secret abilities Pokémon from our team, for example, or to call on wild Pokémon. We also discover the return of Peaceful Square d’Unionpolis which has been revised since this time we will be able to walk with six Pokémon (provided they are authorized) and change the viewing angle and zoom. The Poffins are also still present and will further improve the conditions of Pokémon such as the Cold blood, the Robustness or the Grace, ideal for Super Show Contest. You can now prepare Poffins in the Peaceful Square in addition to the Poffinerie. The official website (West / Japan) has also been updated and present Palkia and Dialga, the Crowned Mountain and the Columns Lances, or the day and night cycle.

During your journey, you will have the chance to cross paths with legendary Dialga Pokémon in Sparkling Diamond Pokémon, or Palkia in Sparkling Pearl Pokémon.
Dialga and Palkia are legendary Pokémon featured in myths from the Sinnoh region. Dialga would be the master of time, and Palkia the master of space. They are both revered by the inhabitants of Sinnoh.
What role will they play in your adventure?
At first glance, the mysterious statue of Vestigion resembles both Dialga and Palkia. No one knows when, by whom and for what purpose it was erected.
- This Pokémon can control the weather. He is considered a deity in Sinnoh and appears in the myths of this region.
- According to a legend, time set in motion when Dialga was born.
- This Pokémon is able to shape space. The myths of Sinnoh speak of him as of an ancient deity.
- It is said that he lives in the gap between two parallel dimensions.
Mont Couronné, whose summit is constantly snow-covered, rises in the heart of the region. In the eyes of the people of Sinnoh, it is a sacred mountain. It shelters a vast labyrinth surveyed by wild Pokémon. The deeper you go, the more powerful Pokémon you encounter.
The Lance Columns rise to the top of Crowned Mountain and appear to be the ruins of an ancient temple. No one knows if this place was once a place of ritual, or if it was the lair of a sacred creature.
