Boxart of Pokemon ChronoDiamond Version

Pokemon ChronoDiamond and DeepPearl are the 3DS enhanced remakes of the Generation 4 titles, Diamond and Pearl.

Pre-Release Information

The Underground feature will return for the first time since Platinum, while the Battle Tower is replaced with the Battle Kingdom. New Locations are also featured in this game and there are new Mega Evolved Pokemon. Mega Torterra, Mega Infernape, Mega Empoleon, Mega Luxray, Mega Flygon, Mega Shuckle, Mega Kingdra, Mega Arcanine, Mega Goodra, Mega Roserade, Mega Froslass, and Mega Milotic each make their debut with different abilities. The Poketch also makes a return, which will have the Super Training, Poke-Amie, and PSS Mechanics. Also Dialga and Palkia each receive Primal Reversions, joining Kyogre and Groudon as the only Pokemon capable of Primal Forming.

Gameplay Mechanics

The Gameplay Mechanics remain the same as GEN VI- onward.

Changes from Diamond and Pearl

The following elements from X and Y, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

  • Mega Evolution and Mega Stones

    • A number of new Mega Evolutions and Mega Stones that did not exist in X and Y, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire were also introduced.

    • Cynthia has a Mega Garchomp, and her plot has been expanded to complete the search for the odds of Mega Stones, the Primal Reversions, and the possible existence of the Mortality duo.

    • Some of them, however, are unobtainable

  • The Fairy-type and the new neutral match-up Steel has to Ghost and Dark.

  • Pokemon Amie and Super Training

  • Horde Encounters

    • Occasionally, five-versus-one Horde Battles can also occur with Trainers.

  • The Battle Kingdom replaces the Battle Tower.

Changes to Diamond and Pearl


The National Pokedex is no longer required to gain access to Route 225-230, Survival Area, and Resort Area

After defeating the Elite Four for the first time, a cut scene of a Pokemon Trainer named Red walking into Spear Pillar is shown before going back to the title screen, revealing that the player can battle Red at Spear Pillar anytime during post-game.

The Distortion World can be accessed, but only to obtain the Griseous Orb after the player captures Giratina.

Shaymin, Arceus and Darkrai are now catchable during post-game legitimately in their respectful locations, Spear Pillar (Arceus), Newmoon Island (Darkrai), and Route 224 (Shaymin).


Legendary Pokemon, including Reshiram, Zekrom, Kyurem, Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygarde are now catchable.

The Adamant Orb allows Dialga to Primal Evolve into Primal Dialga, while the Lustrous Orb allows Palkia to Primal Evolve into Primal Palkia.

Professor Rowan would award a player a Kalos Starter with perfect IV's, a hidden ability (Bulletproof for Chespin, Magician for Fennekin, and Protean for Froakie) and specific nature. (Adamant for Chespin, Modest for Fennekin, and Timid for Froakie) after completing the Elite Four twice.

The Gym Leaders and the Elite Four now have their own Mega Evolved Pokemon in the rematch.

Each Gym Badge has the exact same effect as X and Y.


The Veilstone Game Corner is removed.
