The Pokemon Diamond & Pearl remakes have been updated twice before launch and if you’re looking for some patch notes, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s everything we know about the Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl 1.1.1 update. 

The patch was first announced on November 10, confirming that a list of changes will be implemented just before the titles go live.

One of the most interesting parts of the content refresh is the final cutscene, which was previously not included for those who were granted early access – such as press websites, for review. However, that’s been added since.

On top of that, more communication functions for the Grand Underground, Super Contest Shows, Union Room, and Mystery Gifts.
