Pokémon Aquamarine & Peridot Versions are the second newest Pokémon games made by EEA Inc. for the Nintendo DS. This game marks the first time EEA Inc. has made a Pokémon game. It will release at the end of May sometime. The game is set right after the events of Pokémon Platinum on the Marine Isles, a secret island zone.
Originally EEA Inc. was going to make a Pokémon game but Vined Inc. and many other companies were making Pokémon games with different gem names and EEA Inc. couldn't think of a good name. Later a friend of McQueenMario (t∣b∣c) suggested the name, Pokémon Aquamarine. EEA Inc. didn't make the game until later because of the tons of Mario game plans. The game was soon proven to be too hard by McQueenMario (t∣b∣c) because of little knowledge of the newest Pokémon until he purchased Pokémon Platinum and learned much more about the newer Pokémon games. The was officially confirmed on April 23, 2009. Later EEA Inc. wanted a second game to go with Aquamarine, so they made Pokémon Peridot. When the games released, the game covers had Manaphy for aquamarine and Shaymin for Peridot on them. A sequel called Pokémon Garnet was later announced.
The gameplay is much like most Pokémon games except the graphics have improved from Pokemon Platinum.
