Pokemon fans have wanted a Diamond and Pearl remake for a while now, but one fan has taken it upon themselves to create the beloved Sinnoh Region in Minecraft. 

While Pokemon trainers around the world continue to battle and trade their favorite critters in Sword & Shield, many players are hungry for their next big adventure. Of course, if leaks are to be believed, then we could be looking at a Diamond & Pearl remake. Rumblings surrounding the 2006 title have been cropping up online since last year, but The Pokemon Company has yet to announce anything. 

So far, the only news we have regarding a new game is that of Pokemon Snap. The silence surrounding the Sinnoh remakes has led to a few fans creating their own Diamond & Pearl remakes. After all, we previously got a glimpse of what the beloved title could look like using the Unreal Engine.

Since then, another Gen 4 fan has used the blocky world of Minecraft to faithfully recreate areas of Diamond & Pearl.

Minecraft’s blocky graphics really capture the original DS game’s pixel aesthetics.

Mojang’s world of Minecraft is endless and players have been creating amazing worlds since the title released. From gigantic floating kingdoms to vast island paradises, there is always something new to be created. However, Reddit user bubsy200 has recreated a number of early locations from Diamond & Pearl. 

The sleepy starting location of Twinleaf Town has been carefully recreated and features its very own Furfrou and Ralts. A quick walk through the quaint town leads right on over to the dense forest of Route 201. Everything from blocky trees, sections of tall grass, raised platforms, and Verity Lakefront can be seen here. 

While swarms of Starly and Bidoof don’t make an appearance, the wooded area is just oozing with charm. After running through Route 201, bubsy200 enters Sand Gem Town and enters Professor Rowan’s lab. The interior has been kitted out with Rowan’s scientific tools and studies, while the Pokemon Center and Pokemon Mart include everything a trainer could possibly need. 

Once bubsy200 has finished their tour of Sand Gem Town, they head over to Route 202 and begin making their way over to Jubilife City. The city’s towering buildings can just be seen through the trees and we’re given a great aerial perspective as the Minecraft player takes to the skies. 

The Sinnoh city is home to all kinds of useful amenities like the GTS, Trainer School, Pokétch Company, and the Jubilife TV Station. All of these buildings have been carefully recreated to match the original game. 

To make matters even better, this project is still ongoing and bubsy200 aims to upload a new video once new towns have been added. While official news surrounding the rumored new Diamond & Pearl remakes may be scarce, this fan creation proves has helped sate our hunger for the Sinnoh title.

TFT b-patch 11.4 notes: Olaf nerfs, Nasus & Nidalee buffs

A small update for Teamfight Tactics is here with TFT b-patch 11.4. Riot is finetuning some adjustments after their big changes, with the February 24 patch including nerfs to Olaf, as well as buffs to Nasus and Nidalee.

TFT patch 11.4 drastically shook up the game’s meta. Reroll comps were nerfed into the ground, leading to the rise of Slayers and Vanguard-Mystic Neeko.

However, the changes went a bit too far. With Olaf becoming the number one comp instantly, Riot are keen to draw back his power in a big way. On the other hand, Nasus and Nidalee were hit a bit too hard for the devs’ liking.

TFT b-patch 11.4 includes changes for all of these units, and more.

Olaf AD increased, but Runaan’s change is huge nerf

Olaf has quickly risen to the number one carry in TFT with the big nerfs to all his rivals in TFT patch 11.4. Paired with Runaan’s Hurricane, he could cleave through entire teams 1v9. Now, that interaction is changing.

“Hurricane has proved to be too synergistic with Olaf, making him too powerful with the item, but too weak without it. We’re removing the Hurricane interaction, but will be giving him some AD to compensate and open up other build paths,” TFT dev Rodger ‘Minionsrpeople2’ Caudill said in the amended patch notes.

The loss of the Runaan’s proc on his ultimate makes his damage output significantly weaker. While an increase in AD will help balance out the nerf, Olaf forcers will certainly feel the change.

Nasus & Nidalee get compensation buff after early nerfs

On the other side of the equation, after getting nuked in the last update, reroll carries Nasus and Nidalee are getting some assistance. Nasus’ mana is getting decreased so he can cast more readily, while Nidalee’s damage at two and three-star is also up.

The changes may not make either comp S-Tier in the meta, but it’s a handy buff. Talon is also getting a huge bugfix that keeps his mana bar full if a target dies midway through his ability animation.

Quicksilver and Runaan’s bugs have also been squashed in the b-patch. You can find the full TFT b-patch 11.4 notes below, courtesy of Riot.
