Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Mystery Gift Guide

Pokemon BDSP Mystery Gifts are how you get special items and promotions. Here's what you need to know about them.

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Mystery Gift brings the feature back, and it functions largely the same as ever. Once you unlock one, you can use it to get special items and even Pokemon normally unobtainable in the main game.

So far, Pokemon BDSP Mystery Gifts are a bit sparse, though you can get one mythical Pokemon. The full roster of Sinnoh legendaries and mythicals also has some holes in it, holes we expect future presents will likely patch as well. Here's what you need to know about the feature in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

How to Unlock Mystery Gift in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

You’ll unlock Mystery Gift as you progress through the game, but there’s a way you can get it earlier than usual. Head back to Jubilife City after defeating Roark in Oreburgh, and enter the TV Station. It’s the big building with a clown outside. Go up to the third floor, then speak with the man in the sitting area. He’ll ask a question, and you should answer with “Everyone happy Wi-Fi connection option.”

Now you can use the system at any time.

Connect to the Internet, then open the Mystery Gift option from the main menu, and pick how you want to receive your gift. Some gifts are available automatically when you check what gift is available, though you’ll need to enter a code for others.

These are all the current Pokemon BDSP Mystery Gifts available:

  • Manaphy Egg: Available automatically until February 21, 2022
  • Pokemon Platinum outfits: Available automatically until February 21, 2022
  • Sinnoh starter statues: Enter code BDSPUNDERGR0UND

That’s it for all the Mystery Gifts in Pokemon BDSP for now. Shaymin and Darkrai are currently unavailable in the game, and it’s possible they’ll be distributed via Mystery Gift at some point in the future.

But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
