What Legendary Pokemon are there in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl?


Pokemon Shining Diamond and Shining Pearl It will be out very soon and the game already boasts a good number of legendary Pocket Monsters.

Of course, the original Generation IV games had their fair share of legendary Pokemon. As they’ve established with other remakes, however, Pokemon like to allow trainers to catch Legendaries that weren’t in their original games. Pokemon ORAS in particular had almost every legend in the series, and these new remakes could continue the trend.

Generation IV remakes feature several legendary Pokemon

There appear to be two types of Legendary Pokemon that trainers can catch in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. There are those who are caught playing normally and those who are unlocked via Ramanas Park after defeating the Elite Four.

The legendaries that most players are likely to be familiar with are pets: Dialga and Palkia. Both of these Pokemon share a Dragon-type, although Dialga is partly Steel-type and Palkia is partly Water-type. Each of them gets a strong signature move; Roar of Time and Spacial Rend respectively.

The fourth generation is also known for the Lake Trio (Azelf, Uxie and Mespirit), and will return in these remakes. Each of these mons rests in one of the three lakes of the Sinnoh region. All three are Psychic-type and all have the Levitation ability.

Of course, they are not without their differences. Uxie is slower, but has really strong defenses. Azelf is the more offensive of the trio, while Mespirit has a more even spread of stats.

As of now, these are the only confirmed Legendaries that will be found in the game’s regular playthrough. However, there will likely be some of the legendaries found in the original Generation IV games such as Heatran, Giratina, Darkrai, etc.

As shown in a recent trailer, Ramanas Park will also host legendary and mythical Pokemon for trainers to catch. So far, only the legendaries of the first three generations have been revealed. The full list of these legendaries is as follows:

  • Articuno
  • Zapdos
  • Moltres
  • Duck egg
  • Raikou
  • Suicune
  • ho oh
  • Lugia
  • Rayquaza

Most of these legendaries, however, are version exclusive. Ho-oh and the second generation legendary beasts will be found in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond, while Lugia and the legendary birds will be in Pokemon Shining Pearl.

Mythical Pokemon can also be caught in Ramanas Park. Players with a Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu or Let’s Go Eevee save file can receive a Jirachi encounter. Players with a Pokemon Sword or Shield file on their Switch will also be rewarded with a Mew encounter.
