what will be the exclusive Pokémon?

As per tradition in the Pokémon house, even the remakes of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl will offer a list of exclusive creatures, which can only be captured in one of the two titles.

At the moment, The Pokémon Company has not yet offered many details on what will be the composition of the new Pokédex of the Sinnoh region. The latter could therefore include some additional Pocket Monsters compared to what was seen in the original games. For now, we can at least say that Pokémon Shining Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl will at least bring back the roster differences seen in Nintendo DS titles. Based on these considerations, below you will find a first list of the exclusive creatures of the two versions of the adventure:

Pokémon exclusive to Pokémon Shining Diamond

  • Cranidos
  • Rampardos
  • Stunky
  • Skuntank
  • Dialga

Pokémon exclusive to Pokémon Shining Pearl

  • Shieldon
  • Bastiodon
  • Glameow
  • Purugly
  • Palkia

To know the full composition of the Pokédex it will probably be necessary to wait for the debut of the remakes, set for next November 19, 2021, obviously exclusively on Nintendo Switch.

Staying in the Pokémon field, remember that the makeovers of Diamond and Pearl will not be the only productions arriving in the coming months. Game Freak is in fact also working on a completely new chapter: we have described all the latest news about it in our preview of Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
