The Diploma is a recurring item in the Pokémon series that is awarded after each game’s Pokédex is completed. An NPC representing Junichi Masuda, the director of Pokémon’s primary developer Game Freak, delivers the in-game document, which recognizes the enormous effort that goes into filling out one’s Pokédex. In Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, here’s how to get the Diploma.
How to Get the Diploma in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl?
To begin, you must first complete the Sinnoh Pokédex, which will grant you access to the National Pokédex. You only need to see every type of Pokémon in the Sinnoh region to complete the Sinnoh Pokédex; catching them isn’t required.
After you’ve seen every Pokémon in the region and obtained your new Pokédex, head over to the Hotel Grand Lake to meet Junichi Masuda. Masuda will give you a certificate congratulating you on seeing all of the Pokémon in Sinnoh.
When trying to see every Pokémon, keep in mind that depending on which version of the game you’re playing, you can only see Dialga or Palkia atop the Spear Pillar.
You can see the other Legendary by visiting Cynthia’s family’s house in Celestic Town, where you’ll be shown a picture of Dialga if you’re playing Shining Pearl, and Palkia if you’re playing Brilliant Diamond.
If you complete the National Pokédex (aside from unreleased Mythical Pokémon like Deoxys, Arceus, Darkrai, and Shaymin), you can find Masuda at the Hotel Grand Lake, where he’ll give you a separate certificate featuring Dialga and Palkia certifying you’ve completed your National Pokédex.
Well, that’s all we have here about how you can get the Diploma in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. We hope this guide helped you.
