Nintendo have announced what amazing content players can expect from Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl when it is released this November. The news includes all new customisations, a rhythm game, and revamping of the Underground.

This updated version of Diamond and Pearl will include a whole new revamped Underground- now to be called the Grand Underground. The subterranean world will span the entire Sinnoh Region, and inside players can visit, create a secret base of their own, and dig to find fossils or other valuable treasure.

There are also Pokemon Hideaways to discover in the Grand Underground. Inside these hideaways players can find different Pokemon, all living in various terrains. Some of these Pokemon can only be discovered inside these special hideaways!

Players can dig in certain parts of the Grand Underground, and discover treasures, statues, and fossils by using a pickaxe or sledgehammer. Other players can also join you in the dig! The statues can be placed in your very own Secret Base, dug out by using a special tool called the Digger Drill.
