Pokemon Platinum Announced, Due In The Fall

Illustration for article titled Pokemon Platinum Announced, Due In The Fall

Yeah, you read that right. New. Pokemans. Prepare yourself (though don't get too excited). Although strongly hinted at last month (and subsequently spilled in a few Japanese mags earlier in the week), it's only now had its wraps officially taken off by Nintendo. Titled Pokemon Platinum, it's due sometime in the Fall. Those hoping for a new, full Pokemon adventure will be disappointed to hear it's just an expansion to Diamond/Pearl (much like Pokemon Yellow, back in the day). Those happy with any Pokemon they can get , however, should still be tickled pink. Click through for a couple of new, teeny screens.

God damn it nintendo needs to learn how to name pokemon games.

The first were red and blue...followed by yellow. OK. All primary colours, all good.

Then gold/silver....followed not by bronze...but crystal?

And having legedary birds as the cover monsters is fine...until they need one for the 3rd game...so they use suicune. Wouldn't it have been better to simply have each of the legendary dogs be the cover monster? Suicune becomes silver, Raikou is gold, and Bronze is Entei.

Ruby and saffire were at leats followed by emerald....even though those games were ass.

Diamond and pearl should have been followed by some other type of natural jewel, like an opal or dar I say it....crystal? Not a precious metal. NINTENDO! get your shit in gear!
