The Pokemon Company has recently shared a new update that is coming to Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl.
In the upcoming new update, players will be able to meet up two legendary Pokemons during their travels. They can befriend Darkrai and if they have played Pokemon Legends: Arceus, they can also encounter the legendary Arceus.
Encountering Arceus: To encounter Arceus in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl, players must update their game to version 1.3.0* and have a Pokémon Legends: Arceus save file on their Nintendo Switch system with all the main missions completed. They can then receive the Azure Flute item in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pearl after entering the Hall of Fame and obtaining the National Pokédex. Once these conditions are met, players can go to the entrance of the Spear Pillar and the Mythical Pokémon Arceus will reveal itself.
Befriending Darkrai: The Member Card item will be given as a gift from 8:24 a.m. CEST on Friday, 1 April, until 10:28 p.m. CEST on Saturday, 30 April 2022. After obtaining the item by selecting Get via Internet from the Mystery Gift feature in-game and fulfilling specific conditions—players must have entered the Hall of Fame, obtained the National Pokédex, and completed the in-game event for Cresselia — you will be able to go to Newmoon Island, where the Mythical Pokémon Darkrai can be found.
The update will start on Wednesday, March 16, 2022.
