Shining Pearl and Pokemon Brilliant Diamond get Legendary Dumping Ground Ramanas Park
Just a week remains until Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl launch on Switch, November 19. It looks like there will be a new area for the remakes that allows you to capture Legendary Pokemon outside of the game’s Sinnoh region.
You will need to find slates in Sinnoh to make certain Pokemon appear. Some Pokemon will only be available to you if you are using the latest version of the game. Brilliant Diamond users will have access to HoOh, Raikou and Entei. Shining pearl players can summon Lugia and Articuno. This is not the complete list of Legendary Pokemon in the game. However, The Pokemon Company has provided screenshots and art showing Rayquaza at Ramanas Park.
These Legendary Pokemon will only be available in the base version of the game. However, save files from older Switch Pokemongames will allow you to access Mythical Pokemon in your group. A Mew is available to those who have played Pokemon let’s go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee. Jirachi can be added to your party by those who have saved data from Pokemon Sword and Shield.
Ramanas Park isn’t a new area in the Pokémonseries. Pokemon Sword & Shield got its own area in the Crown Tundra DLC. This area featured a lot of Legendary Pokemon and was available for capture. Although it is a net negative to the world-building of these game, it can be a convenient one-stop-shop for catching many of the most powerful Pokemon within one game.
Pokemon Shining Pearl and Pokemon Diamond & Pearl are remakes. These games look back, but Pokemon Legends is looking ahead, with new mechanics, a very original storyline, and a setting for an Pokemon RPG.
