Previews for Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl have been released through various outlets. Within these there's some new information about the games. First, according to Vooks, the game will now include Auto Save, which can be disabled. According to Vooks and Nintendo World Report, Experience Share is also back and affects all Pokémon, but like Sword & Shield, it cannot be turned off. The mechanics including QoL upgrades shown within past generations have also returned such as showing type effectiveness in battle. TMs are also single use in the game, but there will be opportunities to get more
According to Polygon, you can change the Pokémon in your party with Pokémon in storage at any time.
Edit @ 20/10/21 20:45: As there had been confusion due to multiple outlets saying different things about the experience, we reached out to The Pokémon Company for comment and got confirmation in a statement
“In Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl the EXP Share is no longer an item. Experience which is earnt through battling and capturing Pokémon is now awarded to all of the Pokémon in a player’s team, unless they are fainted, rather than individually awarded to specific Pokémon. This gameplay feature is present from the very beginning of the game and cannot be deactivated”

Niantic have announced a group of new features to Pokémon GO. First is the ability to power-up a PokéStop or Gym. This is done by scanning the PokéStop or Gym in AR. When a PokéStop is powered up, it will give better and rarer items, but will only last for a certain amount of time. The higher the level, the better the benefits and the longer it lasts. This is currently live for testing in New Zealand for players Level 20 and above
In addition to this, trainers will start getting nickname suggestions, there will be trainer tips and new Egg Hatch updates including option to skip hatch animation. Finally, there will be a new Special Research story introducing new trainers into GO. All of this will be in the coming months in certain parts of the world
