    Pokedex
    The Pokédex is a feature that has been in every Pokémon game, however with
    the transfer of the game series onto the DS, there have been a few changes
    First, the main control and browsing is implemented on the touch
    screen allowing you to scroll through the Pokémon at will and then
    selecting the Pokémon

    Dex Entry
    When you select the Pokémon, you get a number of options for what to
    display. They are as follows:

    Dex Entry
    Area
    Cry
    Height
    Weight

    This comes with an exit button and a Back and Next Button set which
    can also be accessed through the B & A buttons respectively. This
    page shows the standard Pokédex Entry for Buizeru

    Pokémon's Cry
    The Pokémon's Cry is done a different way. You can select the play
    button on the touchscreen and increase the speed and pitch of the
    cry


    Weight Comparison
    A newly added feature is the comparison of the Pokémon's Weight.
    Like with the height the game allows you to put your own weight and
    your character and the Pokémon in question are put on scales to
    determine who is heavier. Again this allows you to really get a
    scope of how heavy the Pokémon are


    Height Comparison
    The Height Comparison has a slight difference to the normal size
    comparison from previous games. In it you actually enter your own
    height and the comparison is made based on this. This allows you to
    really get a scope of how tall the Pokémon really are.

    The Pokétch, the PokéNav so to speak for Pokémon Diamond & Pearl. This
    handy little device is implemented into the main character's watches and
    has up to 20 features all of which come in a classy LCD Watch style look
    and controlled with the Nintendo DS Touch Screen. Below are the features
    that are currently known.


    Time Management
    The first noticiable function of the Pokétch is the most obvious one
    for a watch; Time Management. On this function you basically see the
    time in 24 hour format. This is good to help you keep track of the
    time and make places in time for time-specific events or Wild
    Pokémon Captures.


    Type Chart
    This little function of the Pokétch allows you to input both an
    attack type and the target Pokémon's types and it will output
    whether this is normal, super effective or not very effective. Quite
    handy if you're searching for attacks that can defeat a certain gym
    leader's Pokémon


    Breeding Centre LookUp
    This feature is a handy one for all Pokémon Breeders and Pokémon
    Trainers. This feature allows you to keep tabs on the Pokémon that
    you have stored at the Breeding Centre. It shows their current
    level, so that you know how many levels it has gone up since it has
    been there, and it shows the actual Pokémon and any egg that the
    Pokémon create. Very handy for breeders and trainers to know when
    their breeding is complete


    Calculator
    This feature is a standard calculator within the Pokétch. When you
    select each of the buttons, a Pokémon's Cry is heard.


    Unfortunately at time of writing, not all the features of the Pokétch have
    been revealed, but when they have been, the will be added to this page

    Time Feature
    A Returning feature to the Pokémon games is the feature revolving
    around Time. The time is set by the DS's clock and confirmed as you
    start the game. It is constantly checkable in the Pokétch Feature.
    However unlike GSC where there was just Day Night and Morning, there
    are several new time areas being used

    Morning
    Morning...the time period that you wake up in. When it's morning in
    the games, the area is darker than normal but still pretty visible

    Daytime
    Daytime is the general time set between Morning and Afternoon. This
    is when everything will be at it's Brightest

    Afternoon
    In the afternoon, the screen areas have a nice Orange tint to
    simulate the Sunlight at Dusk and also provide a phasing into night

    Evening
    In the small gap between Afternoon and NightTime the screen gets
    darker to simulate the time period closer to night and the lights on
    the building are all on

    Night
    And Finally at Night, gone midnight, it is dark and all the
    buildings have lights turned off to simulate the fact that nobody
    would be awake

    Can’t catch Manefi
    Manafi...one of the newly revealed Pokémon has been found to be
    unavailable in Diamond & Pearl
    However there is a way. It involves you having to complete the
    special mission on Pokémon Ranger, obtained in a Nintendo Event (in
    Japan the pre-booking of the 9th movie), where Team GoGo manages to
    obtain Manafi's Egg and you have to defeat them and retrieve it.

    Once you retrieve it, Professor Shinbara tells you that the egg
    cannot hatch in Fiore, but can only hatch in Shinou and you must
    send it there. To do this you need to have 2 DS's, and a copy of
    Diamond or Pearl

    Providing that you have these, the game shall send the egg over to
    the game and you will be able to hatch it into Manafi, and that
    seems to be the only way to get Manafi. The Egg can only be sent to
    One Game and each game can only ever receive one Egg


    Sorry for the Quad post, this is everything about the games so far, could you merge the posts for me mods?

    I'm excited to hear of a new Pokemon game! The day/night thing is a big welcome! I was kind of hoping that Nintendo would remake Silver and Gold like they did with Red and Green (Fire Red/Leaf Green), but maybe they will someday.
