With the release of both Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl on Nintendo Switch, players have another opportunity to revisit the Sinnoh region, catch every last one of those Pokemon, and best the Elite Four all over again. In this guide, we’ll be explaining how you can get free Manaphy and Phione in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, two incredibly rare, Mythic Pokemon.
Getting Manaphy Egg in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
To get your Manaphy Egg, you’ll need to use the Mystery Gift function in the game and select the ‘Get via Internet’ option from within its menus. This needs to be done before Feb. 21, 2022 and can be done on all physical and digital copies of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
Once you’ve received the Manaphy Egg via Mystery Gift, collect it from any Poke Mart and keep it in your party. Eventually, it will hatch and you’ll get the Water-type Mythic Pokemon, Manaphy.
It’s worth pointing out that you’ll need to play the game for around two hours until you unlock the Mystery Gift option. You’ll also need an internet connection, but you won’t need a Nintendo Switch Online membership to claim it.
Getting Phione in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
To get Phione, leave your newly-hatched Manaphy with a Ditto in the Pokemon Nursery found in Solaceon Town.
Once you’ve done this, wait a few hours and then return to the Nursey and you’ll be given an Egg.
Continue on with your quest to catch ’em all and be the very best there ever was with the Egg in your party and eventually it’ll hatch into a Phione.
It’s also worth noting that you’ll need to play for around 10 hours in order to reach and unlock the Nursey in Solaceon Town. However, as long as you’ve claimed your Manaphy Egg by February next year, you can take your time getting there knowing you can breed a Phione when you do.
This is the only way you can get both Manaphy and Phione in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, so make sure you claim your Manaphy Egg before it’s too late.
