Pokemon Brilliant Diamond And Shining Pearl Offer Free Mythical Shaymin
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl players can receive a Mythical Pokemon for free as part of the Pokémon Day celebration. As announced in the Pokemon Presents thread, you require a Mystery Gift to get a free Shaymin. To claim your Shaymin, simply fire up Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl and select “Get Online” from the Mystery Gift menu. This will give you an item called “Oak’s Letter” which will allow you to talk to Professor Oak on route 224. Help Professor Oak and the Shaymin Mythical Pokémon will appear. Once you add him to your team, you can use the Gracidea item to turn him into a celestial form.
This is one of several free updates announced during Pokemon Presents, which also included a free update for Pokemon Legends Arceus, the upcoming Alola update for Pokemon Go, and more.
However, the big opening of the presentation was the announcement of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, new Gen 9 games. The action takes place in a new, as of yet, an unnamed region with an open structure that has no barriers between cities and wildlife. The announcement claims that you will be able to see Pokémon roaming and flying around, including in cities. We also got our first glimpse of the three starters.
