Gather around one and all, for it is time once again for the onset of the epidemic that is poke-mania. On June 21st Australians will be treated to the latest iterations of the Pokémon series, Diamond and Pearl. However, long time fans of the series were left wanting more from the advance generation of the games. While there is no doubt that Pokémon is as big a seller as it always was, does Diamond or Pearl do enough to make it worthy of purchase from anyone other than an eight year old? Are the new features an asset to the games or simply become fillers that effectively provide another watered down experience to leech cash from fans? Thankfully it seems that Diamond and Pearl, while still being the same formula at heart, have brought something new to the table. Welcome to the Sinnoh region.
