|E for Everyone|
|Media Included||Game card, and a digital download.|
Pokemon Temporal Diamond and Spacial Pearl are remakes of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl set to be released on 20th October, 2017.
Nintendo eShop Description
Sinnoh needs you! Return to Twinleaf Town once again and begin your journey!
- Mega Evolve Torterra, Infernape, and Empoleon to achieve victory!!!
- Explore the new Underground and find new Trainers to battle!
- Enter the Battle Tournament and crush your opponents!
- Reveal the mystery of Genesis Dialga/Palkia!
- Enter the Distortion World again to stop Team Galactic to capture Giratina in a post-story mission!
The storyline is the same as Diamond and Pearl, with some of Platinum thrown in, with the following changes:
- Cyrus's role is expanded upon considerably, as he appears in the post-game Platinum Episode, which involves him attempting to use the opposite member of the Creation Trio after his defeat atop Spear Pillar, but Giratina tries to stop him.
- You receive a map of Mt. Coronet from Looker before you enter it to stop Team Galactic atop Spear Pillar.
- Team Magma and Team Aqua make cameo appearances in the Battle Zone area, where they hunt down Heatran or Manaphy depending on the team.
- The Spatia/Cronos Ruins exist where Pal Park once stood. These ruins hold the opposite member of the Creation Trio.
- After completing the Platinum Episode, various legendaries from Johto, Unova, and Kalos begin roaming Sinnoh.
- Arceus can be caught if you bring a party full of all three members of the Creation Trio and all three Lake Guardians to the cave in Celestic Town, where you receive the Azure Flute from an Aether Foundation scientist. Play it at Spear Pillar, and you can battle Arceus.
- Eterna and Hearthome City are now covered in snow due to being the closest to Mt. Coronet, as is the routes connecting them to the mountain.
- Routes 231 and 232 are introduced, which are linked to southern Mt. Coronet. These routes take you to the Sinjoh Ruins, where Ho-Oh or Lugia can be caught after the Platinum Episode depending on your version.
- New Mega Evolutions:
|Pokemon||Type||Ability||Stat Changes/Competitive Analysis|
|Grass/Rock||Solid Rock||Torterra gains increased Defense and Attack, with Special Attack and Speed reduced to compensate. With this, it can serve as a powerful tank in the metagame.|
|Fire/Fighting||Sheer Force||Infernape's Special Attack is reduced in favor of it's Attack and Speed, and it's Defense and Special Defense are also reduced to make it a heavy-hitting physical attacker.|
|Water/Steel||Soothing Tides (When Empoleon switches out, all other Pokemon in your party gain 1/5 of their max HP)||Empoleon's Speed is increased, as is it's Special Attack and Special Defense, allowing it to serve as a good support Pokemon.|
|Normal/Flying||Super Luck||Staraptor sees improved Attack and Speed, building on the strengths it had before, but providing a new twist.|
|Electric/Steel||Stamina||Magnezone sees a Defense and Special Attack buff, and is well-suited towards tanking and taking the brunt of attacks.|
|Rock/Fighting||Iron Fist||Rhyperior gains an Attack and Defense buff, and with the inclusion of the Fighting type, it's more versatile than he was before.|
|Normal/Psychic||Installation (Attacks boost a random stat)||Porygon-Z gains the Psychic type to help counter Fighting types, and gains a Special Attack and Speed buff.|
|Fire||Infiltrator||Magmortar's Special Attack and Special Defense are raised, and Infiltrator allows it to break Substitute barriers and other obstacles.|
|Electric||Shields Down||Electivire gains an Attack and Speed buff, and Shields Down allows it to hit harder when confronted with weaknesses.|
|Ice/Ground||Unaware||Mamoswine sees Attack and Special Defense boosts, and a powerful new ability.|
|Dragon/Flying||Simple||Dragonite's Special Attack is heavily buffed, with it's Attack reduced to compensate. It's new Ability helps with burst attacks.|
|Normal||Protean||All of Arceus's stats are boosted by a tiny amount, and Protean makes it arguably the most versatile Pokemon in the game.|
- Some Pokémon, like Wormadam got new formes. New formes for Burmy and Wormadam are Tidal Cloak (Bug/Water), Nest Cloak (Bug/Flying) and Snow Cloak (Bug/Ice).
- The Underground has been revamped. Battles may occur there now, and it opens up access to the Battle Tournament, which I will be explaining next. Secret Bases are similar to those in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, and you can even dig a tunnel that connects your base to the surface. The Underground can also use the Nintendo Network to find people to play with, providing a new source of flags to help get Spiritomb.
- The Battle Tournament allows for Pokemon battles, but with several twists, like no *insert name of type here* Pokemon allowed, or a Pokemon can only be out for a few turns at a time. It allows for battles with custom rules, and also supports battling against friends and people on the Nintendo Network with these rules.
- The Game Corner in Veilstone now has different minigames due to the European gambling issues that led to no game corners after the release of HeartGold and SoulSilver. The minigames have nothing to do with gambling, and the building is even renamed to the "Veilstone Arcade". The minigames are similar to those in FireRed and LeafGreen's Game Corner in the Sevii Islands, as well as Voltorb Flip from HeartGold and SoulSilver.
- The Creation Trio gets new Formes known as Genesis Forms, which are activated by holding their respective orb:
|Pokemon||Type||Signature Move (Due to the power of these moves, they only have 2 PP, and that number cannot be boosted)||Ability||Stat Changes/Competitive Analysis|
Temporal Rift (Dragon-type)
(Time is reversed backwards by two turns, undoing the effects of the last two turns, except the foe takes damage as well)
|Chronal Warping (Two-turn moves don't waste a turn)||Dialga's Special Attack and Defense are increased, with it's Ability providing a hefty boost to moves like Giga Impact and Solar Beam. Temporal Rift allows for your team to get out of a sticky situation while also damaging opponents.|
Gravity Lapse (Dragon-type)
(The entire enemy team takes damage, with the Pokemon currently out taking more)
|Spatial Power (Attacks always hit)||Palkia gets a Special Attack and Special Defense increase, and it's Ability allows for attacks to always hit. Gravity Lapse hits multiple foes, making switching out difficult.|
(Deals heavy damage and heals Giratina for twice the damage dealt)
|Dying Breath (When Giratina faints, the enemy Pokemon loses 30% of their HP)||Giratina's Special Attack and Speed is boosted, and Dying Breath allows you to set up powerful revenge kills for when you are eventually killed. Void Pulse helps keep you alive with great healing.|
- Many features from OR/AS and X/Y return, like the PSS, Super Training, Pokemon Amie, and others. Trainer Customization also returns, but isn't available until the postgame.
- The Pokech has been upgraded to the Pokech 2, with new apps such as a Menu app for menu buttons, a News app similar to the BuzzNav, a Pokedex app similar to the DexNav, and others. It also brings back the phone feature that hasn't been seen since HeartGold and SoulSilver's Pokegear.
- The Battle Royale mode, Hyper Training, Pokémon Refresh and Z-Moves also returns from S/M. Unlike its predecessor, the Mega Ring and Z-Ring have merged into one item, called the Power Ring. However, you can only use either Mega Evolution or Z-Moves on your Pokémon, not both.
- The Battle Frontier reappears again.
- The Poke Radar now brings out Pokemon native to Unova, Kalos, and Alola alongside the Pokemon you could see before.
- Sinnohian forms are introduced:
|Pokemon (Their previous evolutions are also affected)||Type||Ability||Description|
|Rock/Ice||Snow Warning||The Sudowoodos of Sinnoh have adapted to the cold climates north of Mt. Coronet, causing them to gain the Ice type and Snow Warning.|
|Psychic/Ground||Healer||In Sinnoh, the Unown's connection to Arceus has deepened, and because of this, they have become closer to the land and to other Pokemon, capable of healing their wounds.|
|Dark/Flying||Dark Aura||Crobats have learned to live in the dark reaches of Sinnoh, and are even more vicious than they have been before.|
|Ghost/Fighting||Effect Spore||The ancient ruins in Sinnoh have led to Machamps studying age-old fighting techniques, causing them to gain the Ghost type.|
(Only Silicoon and Beautifly)
|Magician||The Beautifly of Sinnoh have become closer to the regions surrounding Spear Pillar, becoming one with the Creation Trio.|
(Only Cascoon and Dustox
|Power of Alchemy||Dustox have long congregated in caverns and dark forests within Sinnoh, with their new, almost demonic appearance coming from this change.|
|Poison/Fire||Unnerve||Around Mt. Stark, the Garbodor have adjusted to the flaming-hot conditions of the landscape.|
The amount of Pokémon in TD/SP is still the same as in Platinum, but got changed with the addition of the Fairy-type, so it has exactly the same number of Pokémon as the Hoenn Pokédex in ORAS. All Pokémon from the Original Sinnoh Pokédex of D/P regain their Pokédex entries from the games while the rest gets their entries from X/Y. Link here!
