I think those might be the first Pokémon games I actually skip lol
Looks terrible.

I was playing Diamond yesterday, wondering just how much they’d have to change to remake them in the modern style, turns out they simply didn’t! It’s a much more direct remake than I’d ever imagine.

But also they did and changed absolutely everything. And made that another game.

The graphics in this one are a bit odd. But it being a direct remake of a game I already like, I don’t see it being a bad game.

Yeah, the chibi-ness doesn't work for me. I'm suprised it's not just Lets Go DP.

Seems like they've been given a similar treatment as Link's Awakening. Like if they had to recreate the game's original look on modern hardware. I am OK with that!

Consider me excited.

I haven't played a main line Pokemon game since the original red and blue. Were Diamond and Pearl good games? If so, what made them so special? Thanks.

Still looks ok to me, not great, but ok. Looking forward to playing these games for the first time.

@dionysos283 they were a bit blocky and plain in terms of graphics and style, but the Sinnoh region was like a big maze, and the games had several little features that were quite unique.

I think most people remember them fondly.

@jump as man... Let's Go versions would've been so much better if that meant the Let's Go artstyle.

They basically recreated the sprites with the atrocity they went with for these games and the visuals lost all the charm of that pixel-y NDS look in the process.

Sinnoh is probably my favorite region. Hearing rumors of remakes made me equally excited, and worried.

Now I'm just excited. There's obviously a few finer points to address (underground mini game, connectivity with Home and SwSh, etc), but we're off to a good start.

I actually don't mind the look of it. It's basically like they took the 2D sprites and made them 3D while keeping all the same proportions. They kept it really faithful to the style of the original, and it's nice that we get some variety in visuals on the Switch Pokemon games considering they could have easily just copied the style from Let's Go, which would have been boring imo. I'll be happy to play this since I remember Diamond/Pearl the least out of any game in the series.

Doesn't look amazing, but I think the style looks interesting

I would have preferred the Let's Go treatment. I'll still get these, but sheesh, do they look bad.

I think it looks unappealing with this style. Pokemon Sun and Moon were 10000 times better looking than this.

It actually looks like a cheap mobile game.

But we all know this is NOT made by Game Freak. They are busy with Legends.

I never played the originals and the leaked images of the remakes look good.

I'm very excited for today's announcement.

@Octane
Looks okay for me.
I'm casual gamer, not playing Pokemon games too seriously.
As long decent 3D and looks good enough, it's fine for me.

The character models do have that mobile quality. Though the environments, with the high contrast, actually remind me a lot of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

I think it looks awesome. What is wrong with people these days? Practically any art style is deemed horrendous by the vocal internet minority.

LA remake was "bad," the Harvest Moon remakes are "bad," Bravely Default II is "bad." Come on. It's like Windwaker every day but worse in the social media age. And look how Windwaker turned out with so many people at the time saying its art direction was horrible; it's now one of the more beloved games in the franchise and has arguably aged better than the other 3D Zeldas.

Also can't grasp how people still don't register the difference between a handful of static shots and actually playing the game. Harvest Moon Mineral Town for instance, I was very skeptical based on the screenshots and Youtube stuff... but in motion it was fantastic.

@rallydefault definitely agree people have seen like 3 minutes worth of content and an actually not terrible art style and just start giving the game crap for no reason, we got what we want so stop freaking out.

Games I'm playing right now:
Zelda BotW - Switch

I think I know why it looks like a mobile game. They’re using the Pokémon Home-style shading on the characters.
