Generation IV Pokémon games consist of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl on Nintendo DS, and Pokémon Battle Revolution on the Wii. Diamond and Pearl take place in Sinnoh, while Battle Revolution's setting is Pokétopia. Much like Generation III takes place contemporaneously with Generation I, Generation IV seems to take place contemporaneously with, or shortly after, the events of Generation II.

Advances in gameplay

This generation is to Generation III as Generation II was to Generation I, being compatible with the GBA games by allowing players to transfer up to six Pokémon per cartridge ahead to Sinnoh every 24 hours. Additional advances are as follows:

Though it was rumored that the Template:Type2/Template:Type2/Template:Type2 trio would be replaced instead with a Template:Type2/Template:Type2/Template:Type2 trio, that much proved to be false, and Diamond and Pearl's staters are the Grass-type Turtwig, the Fire-type Chimchar, and the Water-type Piplup.

New abilities for old Pokémon

Some old Pokémon gain new abilities:

Other Generation IV games

Pokémon Battle Revolution, released in Japan in December, 2006, features a Pokémon Stadium-like arena for battle, allowing Diamond and Pearl to link to it through wireless communications between the Nintendo DS and Wii, much like previous generations' games would link to Colosseum, XD, Stadium, and Stadium 2. Battle Revolution also features online battles with players around the world via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

Future Generation IV games include Mystery Dungeon: Time Exploration Team and Mystery Dungeon: Darkness Exploration Team.
