Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl are offering a new facility that players should be excited about. Ramanas Park gives everyone that chance to meet Legendary Pokémon.

Players can only visit the facility after entering the Hall of Fame. Once inside, players are sure to notice rooms filled with pedestals. By inserting a slate into a corresponding pedestal, a Legendary Pokémon will appear. That thing is, no one really knows how to get these slates. So, players need to do some research as they explore the Sinnoh region.

It’s important to remember that some Legendary Pokémon can only be encountered in one game version. However, it’s still possible to get all of them through other ways like trading with other players. These are the Legendary Pokémon that can be encountered:

  • Brilliant Diamond
    • Raikou
    • Entei
    • Suicune
    • Ho-Oh
  • Shining Pearl
    • Articuno
    • Zapdos
    • Moltres
    • Lugia

Mythical Pokémon

It’s not just Legendary Pokémon since both games also give players the chance to befriend a Mythical Pokémon. But there’s a twist. To add a Mythical Pokémon to their team, players need to have play records from one of the qualifying games on Switch when they start the new games. In particular:

  • Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield
    • Look for a gentleman somewhere in the flower field located at the southwest end of Floaroma Town.
    • Speak to that gentleman to get the Mythical Pokémon Jirachi as a companion.
  • Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!
    • Speak to a madame in the flower field of Floaroma Town’s southwest end.
    • Get the Mythical Pokémon Mew as a companion.

Pokémon GO Celebration

To celebrate the upcoming release of these two games, Pokémon GO is launching an event from November 16 to November 21. For the duration of the event, players have the chance to encounter special Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup wearing hats inspired by the protagonists of Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. There are also Avatar items based on the outfits of the protagonists at the in-game Style Shop for free. Read more about it here.
