Encounter and befriend Legendary and Mythical Pokémon in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl; Pokémon Legends: Arceus in-game bonuses
Encounter Legendary Pokémon at the Ramanas Park
Befriend Mythical Pokémon by linking to previous games
If players have play records from Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield on their Nintendo Switch system when starting their Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pearl game, they'll be able to get a Jirachi. With Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee!, players will be able to get a Mew. Speak to a gentleman or a madame in the flower field located on the southwest end of Floaroma Town respectively to get both Mythical Pokémon as a companion. Note that even if you have multiple game save records from the qualifying games, you can only receive one Jirachi and one Mew in your Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pearl game.
Online Communication and Software Update
There will be a software update (v. 1.1.0) available on November 11, 2021, ahead of the games' release. With this software update, players will be able to enjoy communication features in the Grand Underground and Super Contest Shows, receive special items via Mystery Gift, and visit Ramanas Park after entering the Hall of Fame.
At launch, a maximum of two players (including the user) will be able to battle and trade Pokémon in the Union Room. However, future updates are planned to increase the maximum number of players, as well as add greeting and Capsule Decoration functions. Additionally, future updates will enable Link Trades at the Global Wonder Station (GWS) facility in Jubilife City, as well as Link Battles via the Colosseum function in Pokémon Centers.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus in-game bonuses
Trainers who have played Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! or Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! will be able to claim a Pikachu Mask and an Eevee Mask. Players can claim both the Pikachu Mask and the Eevee Mask by speaking to the clothier after joining the Galaxy Expedition Team. It takes approximately one hour of play time to reach the point where claiming bonus outfit items is available.
