Players can now return to Generation IV's Sinnoh region in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, full remakes of the classics originally released in 2007.

As a little bonus, players who have save data from previous Nintendo Switch Pokémon releases will be able to pick up a fantastic pair of Mythical Pokémon.

Here's how.
