Each Pokemon is dedicated to the Brilliant Diamond (& Where to Find Them)

Since its release Pokemon Red & Blue more than a quarter of a century ago, main line Pokemon Game always come in pairs. Some see this as a cynical money-maker from Game Freak and Nintendo, and while there may be some element of truth to this, it also serves a different purpose. Each game pair has version-exclusive Pokemon, which means players will need to trade with their friends to complete their Pokedex. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this is once again the case with the latest installments of the series, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining pearls.
