The question that many Pokèmon players have is whether or not they can catch Arceus in Pokèmon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
Considering that Pokèmon Legends: Arceus (official site) will be based on the creature’s lore, being able to catch it in BDSP would be a good promotional opportunity. Here’s how you can obtain Arceus in Pokèmon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
How to Get Arceus in Pokèmon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl?
There is currently no way to catch Arceus in the Pokèmon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl at this time (though players can get some other mythical Pokèmon).
That shouldn’t come as a surprise, given that the creature has never been captured in any of the Pokèmon games.
Arceus made his debut in the original Diamond and Pearl in Generation IV, but he could only be obtained through a special event at the time of release.
Given that it has only been made available through three events and one Global-Link Promotion, it is one of the most sought-after Pokèmon:
- Toys R’ US: November 7-15, 2009
- Global Link: February 1 to May 1, 2012
- Manest Online Promo: December 21, 2015, to January 30, 2016
- Pokèmon 20th Anniversary: July 30 to December 31, 2016
As a result, it has been more than five years since players have had the opportunity to obtain Arceus. It is possible that the Pokèmon will return in a future event, possibly to promote Pokèmon Legends: Arceus, if we had to guess.
Those who were fortunate enough to have snagged an Arceus years ago, on the other hand, maybe in for a treat.
Because the Pokèmon’s data is reportedly stored in the game, trainers can transfer it forward to Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl through Pokèmon Home (although this is not required to complete the National Dex).
Otherwise, players will be out of luck for the time being. It’s also possible that The Pokèmon Company/Game Freak is attempting to keep Arceus from appearing in the upcoming Pokèmon Legends: Arceus game.
However, it is unclear what role that Pokèmon will play in the story, but we expect it to contain some information about the Hisui’s origins and creation (Sinnoh).
This completely different game will be unlike any other in the series, and Arceus is likely to play a central role in it.
Well, that’s all we have here about how you can get Arceus in Pokèmon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. We hope this guide helped you.
