Script Edit

From the studio that's pretty much a toy company by now [Nintendo] comes the fourth generation of the alchemical wonder that turns children's dreams into cold-hard cash.

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl and Platinum

Journey once more to the magical world of Pokémon and prepare yourself to face yet another painfully slow tutorial segment teaching you mechanics that haven't changed in a decade. Young child, bad parents, tree-named professor [Rowan], evil team [Team Galatic], Elite Four, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.

Get ready for a Pokémon experience that's deeper than anything that came before it. Featuring: the return of the day-night cycle; pokémon that can only be caught on certain days, because your life revolves around the game already; the eye watch; a muffin-baking meta-game; contests that are three times longer (F**k!); and the inevitable conclusion of the Pokémon franchise - auctioning Pokémon on the internet! They're really going over with all this slavery thing, huh?

Sit back, relax, and enjoy the gameplay formula that basically hasn't changed since the original Gameboy game. As you collect them all and form a diverse team of battlers, or just enroll every single fight with your starter because this game is for children.

So settle in for the same story line and characters from every Pokémon game there is, including the professors, the rival, the evil gang, the gym leaders, and most importantly one hundred and seven new pokémon that makes one thing perfectly clear: Game Freak has run out of ideas. But you bet your sweet ass that we're going to name 'em all. [Deep breath]

Monstér Ranchèr: White & Off-White

[Silhouette of Raichu]

Ash, Misty, & Brock: "Who's that, Pokémon?!"

Woah! It's Pikachu, isn't it?! I bet it's Pikachu! Come on, Pikachu!

Ash, Misty, & Brock: "It's Raichu!"

[Silhouette becomes colored]

F**k me! Every time!

Trivia Edit

Reception Edit

Honest Game Trailers - Pokémon Diamond and Pearl has a 98.6% approval rating from YouTube viewers. Like all previous episodes of Honest Game Trailers about Pokémon games, the writers decision to rename all Pokémon was called out as a highlight. Ben Lamoreux of Gamnesia observed that Honest Game Trailers "makes plenty of jokes about how Pokémon continues to pull in the cash by re-using essentially the same formula. The video then shifts gears as they give the 'honest' names for each of the fourth gen Pokémon." My Nintendo News called the video "and honest and amusing take."

Joe Blevins of The AV Club found the video notable for pointing out how little the Pokémon game series has evolved since it inception. In addition, Blevins called the decision to rename all Pokémon "a little comedy miracle." Blevens wrote, "One can imagine the writers at Smosh Games (five are credited here) having a blast coming up with the lamest and most ridiculous fake Pokémon names imaginable, all of which are read with gusto by Bailey. It’s one of those “Sideshow Bob stepping on rakes” jokes which starts out funny, becomes wearying, then returns to being funny again simply by going on for so long. Some standouts include 'Girl Kirby,' 'Feeeeeed Me Seymour,' and 'Kevin Smith.' The trailer manages to find the bright side of creative desperation."
