If you're a fan of the long-running, million-selling Pokémon series, then chances are you're keen to get your hands on the latest entry, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond And Shining Pearl. Well, when we say 'latest' we're being slightly dishonest; these are remakes of Pokémon Diamond And Pearl, which originally launched on the Nintendo DS back in 2006.
Here's how Nintendo describes these remakes:
Embark on an adventure through the Sinnoh region with Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl on Nintendo Switch! Adventures in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl will take place in the Sinnoh region. Rich in nature and with towering Mount Coronet at its heart, Sinnoh is a land of many myths passed down through the ages. You’ll visit many different locations in the Sinnoh region, while striving to become the Champion of the Pokémon League.

How To Get Pokémon Brilliant Diamond And Shining Pearl Early
Because it's going to be November 19th in Australia before Europe and North America, if you set up an Australian account on your Switch you can download the game before those parts of the world. You can still play the game using your regular Switch user account, but the game will be tied to the account which is region-set to Australia. You'll also need some means of paying for the game, which might include Australian eShop credit.
