It’s been a few days since we saw the reveal of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

It pays to watch events closely, especially for fans that are eager to see if Pokémon Platinum content made it into the remakes

Enthusiasts, do you think Pokémon Platinum content will be in the Switch remakes of D/P? Let us know below.
