During the Tokyo Game Show 2022 today, the winners of the Japan Game Awards were announced. One winner in particular that seems to have people talking on social media is the 2021 Switch title Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl.

Not only did it take out the “best sales award”, but it was also recognized as the best Japanese game release globally. While the sale price isn’t too surprising, many trainers online are apparently confused (and a little frustrated) at how the remakes took out the “global” price.

Here’s how some Pokemon fans are reacting to the latest news online:

Pokémon Legends: Arceus ended up taking out an ‘award of excellence’, Kirby got some love too, and Bandai Namco’s hit Fire Ring won the main prize. Here’s the breakdown (via NintendoSoup):


・Resident Evil Village
・Sky Children Spinning the Stars
・Tales about ARISE
・LOST JUDGMENT: Unjudged memories
・Final Fantasy XIV: Akatsuki Finale
・Pokémon Legends: Arceus
・Horizon Forbidden West
