As far as the endgame content in Pokemon titles are concerned, I'd like to think that I've set my gold standard pretty high, and by that, I mean Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver levels of "high". While most entries in the franchise let you explore a town or two after the main story, the aforementioned duo went all in and gave you the entire Kanto region to explore, to say nothing of the various legendary Pokemon that you could catch.

However, the upcoming Sinnoh remakes just might be able to give them a run for their money in the latter category. According to a trailer published on the official Pokemon Twitter page, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will introduce the all-new Ramanas Park section after players clear the main story. In this special zone, they'll be able to face off (and of course, catch) numerous Legendaries from all across the franchise by acquiring special "Slates" hidden throughout Sinnoh. 

Just like previous instalments, the variety of Legendaries that players can encounter are determined by their game version, and the trailer has already provided a glimpse of some of these version exclusives. Specifically, Trainers in Brilliant Diamond will be able to catch the likes of Ho-Oh and the Legendary Dogs (Entei, Raikou and Suicune). Meanwhile, those who are playing Shining Pearl can come face to face with Lugia and the Legendary Bird trio (Moltres, Zapdos and Articuno). To top Ramanas Park off, the video also teases Rayquaza as a possible encounter for both versions, though the exact prerequisites for catching it, if any are still unknown at this time. 

Personally, I'm quite fond of that last one, though Deoxys probably comes a close second where Legendaries are concerned. After all, Rayquaza was the first Pokemon I ever took to level 100 all the way back in Emerald, so it's not hard to see why I have a soft spot for it. But, I digress.

Apart from the Legendaries that can be encountered in Ramanas Park, players who own older instalments like the Pokemon Let's Go! or Pokemon Sword and Shield titles will be able to acquire Mew and Jirachi by linking their save data to Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Speaking of which, in order to access Ramanas Park in the first place, you'll have to download the day one patch that developer ILCA will be releasing alongside the Sinnoh remakes on 19 November. Happy catching, everyone!
