Released on the Nintendo DS in 2006 in Japan and 2007 everywhere else, Pokémon Diamond and Pearl started the fourth generation of games, with the third entry, Platinum, coming three years later. This introduction to the region of Sinnoh ushered in a whopping 107 new monsters for trainers to collect, befriend, and battle.
With remakes coming this November in the forms of Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, we thought it would be fun to do a casual ranking of the top 25 Pokémon introduced in the fourth generation games.
Here are a few things to keep in mind while perusing this list:
- These rankings are based on factors ranging from power to popularity, rarity, memorability, or just because I happen to think they are neat.
- Your favorites may differ, and that's more than okay.
- With more than 100 monsters to choose from, a lot is missing from this list. Track down copies of these games and discover your own favorites!
- Have fun, and don't take it too seriously!
With that said, you can call me Professor Carson. Welcome to the region of Sinnoh.
