Pokémon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl Fan Catches Every Pocket Monster in Under 24 Hours

Although Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl only released last Friday, one YouTuber/Twitch Streamer caught all of the game's titular creatures in less than 24 hours.

Streamer SmallAnt posted a video on YouTube documenting how he went about catching all the game's Pokémon. SmallAnt documented some of how he strategized his run, explaining that he initially selected Chimchar for his starter and then used a friend's Nintendo Switch to get Piplup and Turtwig. Other problems included getting Drifloon, whose appearance is linked to an internal schedule. As the video makes clear, SmallAnt -- who was playing Brilliant Diamond -- had to be very precise and careful about how he proceeded to accomplish his goal. In the end, SmallAnt's game clock reads 20:53, so just under 21 hours of play time.

Created by Satoshi Tajiri, Ken Sugimori and Junichi Masuda, Pokémon is a Japanese franchise that began in 1996 with Pocket Monsters Red and Green. The games were not released in North America until 1998, where they were known as Pokémon Red and Blue. In general, the franchise's gameplay sees players taking on the role of young trainer in one of the world's various regions and working to catch every Pokémon so as to become a Pokémon Master. Since launching, the Pokémon series has become the highest-grossing media ever, with a ton of different toys, movies and other products based on the property.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are set in the Sinnoh region, which is based on the Japanese island of Hokkaidō. The games are remakes of the fourth generation of Pokémon games. However, they add a ton of new features. Initial reviews for Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pearl both hold a 76 on Metacritic. For the sake of comparison, the original versions of the games, which released on the Nintendo DS in 2005, hold an 85.
