launches for the Nintendo Switch next month and players will receive an extra bonus in the game if they have data for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl on their system.
First, players will be able to embark on a special research request to capture the mythical Pokemon Darkrai. The request will be available from Jubilife Village once you have cleared the main story and seen the credits roll.
In addition, Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl players will be able to claim a free modern Team Galactic suit for their character. You can receive the outfit from the clothing maker after joining the Galaxy Expedition Team, about an hour inside the game.
Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set centuries before Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, when the Sinnoh region was known as Hisui and the concept of Pokémon trainers did not yet exist. The game’s latest trailer introduces several factions that players will encounter during the course of the adventure, including the rival Diamond and Pearl clans and the Ginkgo Guild.
A few other bonuses are also available to players. If you’ve played Pokemon Sword or Shield, you’ll be able to embark on a research mission to capture the mythical Pokemon Shaymin. Those who have played Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu or Let’s Go, Eevee will also be able to receive free Pikachu and Eevee masks for their character.
