Switch Pokemon Diamond Pearl

Last Friday, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl hit store shelves, finally giving fans a remake of the series' beloved fourth generation of games. Early sales data suggests they're off to a flying start, which shouldn't really come as any surprise, and their launch has just become that extra bit special.

That's all because of James Turner, a graphic designer responsible for plenty of your favourite Pokémon. Game Freak's talented artist is back with a new piece celebrating the new games, showcasing both box art stars Dialga and Palkia in his signature style. Check it out:

Adorable, huh?

Turner's also shared a smartphone wallpaper-sized version if you'd like to use the piece as your next background. Don't mind if we do!
