Daybreak Update

A new software update is now available in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. The Daybreak update has trainers investigate a mysterious mass outbreak of Pokémon popping up across the Hisui region. Players also get the chance to go against strong opponents like Legendary Pokémon and wardens.

As part of the Pokémon Day celebration, players can receive items by entering in the Mystery Gifts menu the password below:


The gift includes 30 Ultra Balls, 30 Gigaton Balls, and 30 Jet Balls.​ This offer expires on March 31.

Oak’s Letter

In Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl, trainers receive an item known as Oak’s Letter. Once received, trainers can talk to Professor Oak on Route 224. He then asks for help regarding a stone tablet like one found in the Kanto region. As the Trainers help Professor Oak, the Mythical Pokémon Shaymin appears. Trainers can then follow it and try to add it to their team.
