It happened: the Gen IV remakes are real! While we knew Pokémon Diamond and Pearl would get a remake eventually, few of us expected a prequel on top of that; it's a good time to be a Sinnoh fan right now!

Strap on your running shoes and dive into the Distortion world with Nirav, Rhi and special guests Nikhil and Bri to discuss the history and legacy of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. Talking points include the Bad Frog, Zoomer takes, Brexit 2, hidden Japanese cinema, playground rumors, Lickitung’s Mountain Journey and hating new things. It’s Game Busters: Platinum Edition!
