Here’s how to claim a mythical Pokemon that is being given away for free in the upcoming Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl.
Announced during this week’s Nintendo Direct, there will be a distribution event giving away a mythical Pokemon in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl. The mythical Pokemon in question is Manaphy.
What is Manaphy?
Manaphy is a very rare Mythical and is a member of the Sea Guardians. Manaphy is also a Water-Type Pokemon from the Sinnoh region.
How can I acquire Manaphy?
During the release of Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, players will be given a free egg via the in-game Mystery Gift System.
When can I claim Manaphy?
The distribution event will start with the launch of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shiny Pearl (November 19th) and will end on February 21st, 2022. So, you will have plenty of time to bag a mythical Manaphy.
Can I still claim Manaphy once the date expires?
Currently, we do not know. Hopefully, there will be other ways to catch Manaphy in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl.
Though it would not surprise me as part of Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl celebrations, that Manaphy might even make an appearance in the mobile game, Pokemon Go. However, that is just speculation and wishful thinking on my part.
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are remakes of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl which were both released in 2006 for the Nintendo DS.
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will release for the Nintendo Switch on November 19th. Then on January 28th, 2022, Pokemon Legends: Arceus releases for the Nintendo Switch. It is an exciting time to be a Pokemon fan!
