Male trainer

The first concrete information Pokémon Diamond and Pearl was uploaded to the Internet today in the form of scans from the June issue of CoroCoro Comics. Included in the scans are screenshots, new first-person trainers and the name of the region.

Female trainer

The screenshots show both in-battle and overworld scenes. The battle shown was between Munchlax and Manyula, and the display looks very similar to previous Pokémon RPGs.

Munchlax information

The name of the region in which the games take place is シンオウ Shinō, and the protagonist's hometown is フタバタウン Futaba Town.

Manyula information

The scans reveal the abilities of Munchlax and Manyula. Munchlax has either Thick Fat or Pickup, and Manyula has Pressure. Munchlax's signature move is Swallow, and Manyula can learn Revenge.

The scan listed the Japanese release date for the games as "this fall."

The scans confirm that Pokémon from the Game Boy Advance Pokémon RPGs can be transferred to Diamond and Pearl once certain conditions are met in the latter games.
