Again we get an interesting message that has recently gone viral and is related to one of the most prominent titles in the catalog on the hybrid console. This time we are talking about Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
The text shows us a really important change not only for this game but for the entire franchise in general. As many of you may know, it seems that for the first time the classic Pokémon sprites, with their mythical retro style, are being abandoned. Both these remakes and Pokémon Legends: Arceus seem to be doing without them.
“It looks like BDSP and Legends are doing away with sprites altogether, as the Pokémon show still images of their 3D models (BDSP), static images (Legends) and official artwork for items (both games). It saddens me a bit because I love their sprite work, but I’m not surprised,” we can read in the message. His replies have been filled with comments from fans claiming that they will miss these sprites.
Here it is:
