The upcoming Pokémon Legends: Arceus has more than a few connections to Diamond and Pearl, with it being a game set in the same region just centuries earlier. This latest connection is even more on the nose than usual though, with the game’s latest trailer introducing us to the Diamond and Pearl clans.

The official website confirms that these clans pay respects towards and protect Noble Pokémon across Hisui. Intriguingly they also refer to Sinnoh, the future name of the region, as if it were a diety.

It has also been confirmed that those with Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl save data will be able to snag Darkrai and a spiffy Galaxy Team uniform.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus launches January 28th, 2022.
