Ishihara: Diamond, Pearl "compilation"
GameBrink.com is hosting a translation of an interview with Tsunekazu Ishihara, a producer of the Pokémon video games. The original interview was published by Famitsu magazine today.
The translation, located here, includes several revelations.
"I want to create a 'compilation' on the Nintendo DS out of all the Pokémon titles released so far," Ishihara said. "Compared to the Red and Green versions, there are a greater number of Pokémon appearing in these new titles, so I want people to be able to collect them all. Red and Green had 151 Pokémon, while in Gold and Silver 100 more were added, and following that, Ruby and Sapphire ended up with more than 380 different Pokémon. This time I'm planning to include even more Pokémon in these new titles. Starting out with new Pokémon, you'll be able to give old Pokémon a variety of evolutions by using the wireless link feature a lot."
