So, now that you know that these people know what they’re talking about, back to the Diamond and Pearl Remake leak. Further evidence has us looking at a subdomain for the game which was enabled but was also quickly disabled. The site returned an error code 403, which means that the content is there, it just can’t be accessed. Gameplay-wise, it seems that it won’t follow Pokémon Let’s Go’s catching mechanics and will revert back to the normal Pokémon catching mechanic. Aside from that, nothing else has been leaked.
According to info found by @pokexperto, the Pokémon Diamond Pearl subdomain was activated on January 12th 2021, it was not an old subdomain.
The Pokémon Legends subdomain was also activated that day 👀 https://t.co/vCYjxgzitj

Pokémon Centro also expects a Nintendo Direct next month announcing the remakes. This year, the Pokémon Company is celebrating its 25th anniversary. It’s going to be a year-long celebration with special guests such as Katy Perry and more guests that are unannounced. Of course, this year will be filled with surprises such as events, promotions, and game announcements. The first of which was New Pokémon Snap and it wouldn’t be a far-off guess that the next one would be the Diamond and Pearl remakes.
