Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Will Feature an Area Called Ramanas Park
The park will allow players to encounter Legendary and Mythical Pokemon.
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl are set to be released on Nintendo Switch on November 19. The games are remakes of the original Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl video games that were released on Nintendo DS, and they feature a number of updates and quality-of-life improvements for players to enjoy.
One of the new features in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl is Ramanas Park, an area that players can visit after they’ve entered the game’s Hall of Fame (in other words, after they’ve defeated the Pokemon Champion).
In Ramanas Park, players will be able to enter a series of caves and use special slates to encounter Legendary Pokemon.
Some Legendary Pokemon will be exclusive to each version of the game. Specifically, Raikou, Entei, Suicune, and Ho-Oh will be exclusive to Pokemon Brilliant Diamond, while Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, and Lugia will be exclusive to Pokemon Shining Pearl. If players want to collect the Legendary Pokemon that aren’t available in their game, they can trade for them with other players.
Elsewhere, the Pokemon Company revealed two bonuses that players can collect in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and/or Shining Pearl if they have save data from other Pokemon games on their Switch system.
If players have save data from Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield, they can receive the Mythical Pokemon Jirachi by speaking with “a gentleman in the flower field located on the southwest end of Floaroma Town.”
If they have save data from Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu or Let’s Go, Eevee, they can collect the Mythical Pokemon Mew by talking with “a madame in the flower field located on the southwest end of Floaroma Town.”
