Today during the 2022 Tokyo Game Show, the winners of the Japan Game Awards were announced. One winner, in particular, that it seems people are talking about on social media is the 2021 Switch title Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl,

Not only did it receive the ‘Best Selling Award’, but it was also recognized as the best Japanese game release globally. While the sales award isn’t all that surprising, a lot of trainers online are confused (and a little disappointed) about how the remake earned the “global” award.
