Now that we know Pokemon Platinum is on the way, we’re going to need a ton of juicy bonuses if Nintendo expects us to buy another version and catch ’em all… again. Luckily, the July issue of CoroCoro suggests that Platinum is shaping up to be a worthy entry into the series. New details include:
- Confirmation on Shaymin’s Sky Forme, its Grass/Flying type, its height of 0.4m, and its weight of 5.4kg. Ken Sugimori’s artwork for the new variation is shown.
- Those picking up Movie Regigigas from the 11th movie, Giratina and the Sky’s Bouquet: Shaymin in Japan can transfer it to Platinum and then catch Regirock, Regice, and Registeel in-game.
- Two new, unknown human characters will be introduced into the game’s story.
- A new area on the map called “Torn World” will be added.
- Lucas and Dawn get new clothes. Barry doesn’t.
