The first games of the so-called ''4th Generation" of Pokemon titles,  Pokemon Diamond and Pearl moves the best-selling RPG series onto the Nintendo DS handheld. Staying with the formula that has brought them success so far, Gamefreak takes advantage of the DS's new features and abilities, adding touch screen support, more advanced 3D graphics, wireless and online multiplayer. Of course, all of these features are mere accessories to the addictive basic gameplay of capturing Pokemon (493 unique species), training them, and exploring the world while battling wild Pokemon and rival trainers.
