Third Generation IV game to be released this fall
||This article brought to you by Bulbanews, your community Pokémon newspaper.
As in previous generations, the third version has finally been announced, titled Pokémon Platinum Version (ポケットモンスタープラチナ Pocket Monsters Platina). The third game, much like Emerald of the previous generation, features different outfits for the protagonists Lucas and Dawn, an altered storyline (now with Giratina appearing at Mt. Coronet), and a new, Battle Frontier-like area known as Battle Island. Giratina also appears in its previously-announced "Origine Forme".
Pokémon Platinum Version will be released in Japan in fall of 2008 and presumably in North America sometime during 2009.
