Just like you can’t say Mattesons without saying ‘Mmmmm’ and can’t put a fruit pastille in your mouth without chewing it, it’s impossible to say the words “gotta catch ‘em all” without singing the Pokémon theme tune!

So, young children and obsessive-compulsive collecting freaks everywhere will be glad to hear that Nintendo has just announced an April 22 North American release date earlier today for two new DS-based Pokémon role-playing games: Pokémon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl.

From the release just in:

Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl offer a number of exciting new features to please both experienced and new Pokémon fans alike. Set in an entirely new region called "Sinnoh," players can choose to begin their adventure as either a boy or girl Pokémon trainer on a path to becoming Pokémon League Champion.

The adventure continues as players can bring Pokémon from their Game Boy Advance Pokémon games to Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl using the GBA game slot on their Nintendo DS….As players trade and collect Pokémon to complete their Pokédex in this new challenge, for the first time they'll have the chance to catch new Pokémon, Munchlax and Weavile. They also can play via local wireless with up to eight other trainers while new moves and abilities deepen strategy.

If you also want a “unique, pre-sell stylus” featuring one of the new Pokémon from the game, then you better pre-order. If you are American that is.
