The third companion to {{bp|Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Versions}}, '''{{bp|Pokémon Platinum Version}}''' (ポケットモンスタープラチナ), was officially announced today by The Pokémon Company and Nintendo. The game, much like [[bp:Pokémon Emerald Version|Emerald]] of the previous generation, features an altered storyline (now with {{p|Giratina}} appearing at {{bp|Mt. Coronet}}), as well as different outfits for {{bp|player character|the protagonists}}. Additionally, Giratina appears in its previously-announced Origin Forme, whose {{bp|ability}} is now known to differ from {{a|Pressure}} (which is Another Forme's ability). It's said that the alternative forms of Regigigas and Shaymin will also appear in the game.
The information provided on the official Japanese Pokémon Web site is essentially the same as that in the magazines; nothing else has been revealed as of yet. The site provides two in-game screen shots and some basic facts.
