Pokémon fans have been waiting for years for remakes of Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl. If recent rumors are to grow, it is possible that such projects will be announced very soon. Whatever happens, the hype is through the roof and for this reason fans felt trolled with a post from the official Pokémon Twitter.
For several days, the official Pokémon account began a countdown to Pokémon Day, the day on which the brand’s anniversary will be celebrated. In it, they have shared images of the initial Pokémon of a specific region – it started with Galar and will end with Kanto – accompanied by a message that says how many days are left.

Today’s image corresponded to Sinnoh, the region where Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl take place. What caught the attention of this message is that its text says “Let’s Go, Sinnoh!” (in Spanish, Let’s go, Sinnoh!), something that many users misinterpreted.
Let’s go, Sinnoh!

Where was the confusion? In 2018, Pokémon Let’s Go, Pikachu! & Let’s Go, Eevee !, remakes of the first generation of Pokémon that adopted Pokémon GO mechanics. These are games that sold well, but that the more hardcore community did not welcome with open arms.
Thus, when users received the notification that Pokémon made a tweet that said “Let’s Go, Sinnoh!” many thought they were confirming fourth generation remakes, but in a way few wanted to see. Let’s remember that many Pokémon fans hope that these possible remakes follow a traditional line such as Pokémon Fire Red or Pokémon Heart Gold.
Fans felt trolled by Pokémon

Could it be that they did it on purpose? We may never know, but it is a fact that more than a fan got a good scare.
