Pokémon PlatinumVisit the official gamesite
The Sinnoh region lies in wait for a hero as Team Galactic set their dark plans in motion. In Pokémon Platinum Version for Nintendo DS, only you possess the power to set things right.
Never before have Pokémon players witnessed the unusual Distortion World! This mysterious realm is home to the Legendary Giratina and is central to the new storyline in the game. The Distortion World is a strange place where the normal rules of time and space no longer apply. With new discoveries and new challenges in Pokémon Platinum Version, the options for online play have also been expanded.
The new Wi-Fi Plaza allows up to 20 players, with wireless broadband access, from anywhere in the world to connect and play mini-games, take part in parades and even see a fireworks show! Players who visit the Global Terminal can post their Pokémon and trade them with players from around the world like in Pokémon Diamond Version and Pokémon Pearl Version. This allows players to find more Pokémon, and also allows players to get Pokémon from other countries, which are often sought-after by many fans. The new Global Terminal also allows players to use a new item, the Vs. Recorder, to save and post "videos" of their best battles online for Pokémon fans to see.
Of course, building up a collection of rare Pokémon is fine, but success in Pokémon Platinum Version depends on how you direct them in Battle! The latest installment in the Pokémon series puts your skills as a Trainer to the test like never before, with challenges coming thick and fast. The Battle Frontier is an area that houses all kinds of rock hard challenges. Victory within five different facilities of the Battle Frontier is rewarded with Battle Points that can be exchanged for well-earned prizes.
Prepare for an exciting new Pokémon experience that throws you into the sprawling Pokémon universe like never before. In Pokémon Platinum Version, only the strongest of Pokémon Trainers will successfully save the Sinnoh region and prove their prowess on a global scale.
