Pokémon Shining Opal is an original game from the mind of Diegoisawesome, featuring new and old characters to meet, a new region to explore, and a bizarre new storyline to find yourself in the middle of.

At times, it might seem like the game is making sense, like it's going in one direction and then suddenly BAM! it deviates from the norm and does something you wouldn't expect. But that's just what you'd expect at this point, isn't it?
