arrives this Friday and Nintendo and Pokemon Company are offering an added bonus for early adopters. Anyone who downloads a physical or digital copy of either remake before February 21, 2022 will be able to receive a free Manaphy egg in their game.
Manaphy is a mythical water-type Pokemon – a rare monster that can not be obtained through normal gameplay, making this early purchase offer the only confirmed way to get one in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. The egg will be distributed via Mystery Gift, a feature that unlocks for about two hours inside the adventure.
After claiming the egg, you must go a certain number of steps in the game with it in your group in order for Manaphy to hatch. If you then leave Manaphy with a Ditto in the Pokemon Nursery in Solaceon Town, it will produce an egg that hatches into Phione – another rare Pokemon that is not otherwise available in the games.
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will be launched for the Nintendo Switch on November 19th. The pair are remakes of the original Pokemon Diamond and Pearl versions for the Nintendo DS, with updated images and others.
In addition to the Manaphy egg, anyone who buys a copy before February 21st can receive training clothes based on those from Pokemon Platinum. Players who have stored data for other Pokemon games on their console can also claim one.
Following Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, a new Pokemon adventure titled Pokemon Legends: Arceus is coming to the Nintendo Switch on January 28th. It also has an early purchase bonus. Anyone who picks up the game before May 9, 2022, can receive a Hisuian Growlithe kimono outfit for their player character.
