Players can now get their hands on Sinnoh’s Legendary Pokemons in different games with the legendary crossover of Pokemon Legends: Arceus X Pokemon Shining Pearl And Pokemon Brilliant Diamond.
According to the latest patch news ofthe Gen 4 remakes, Arceus is available on both versions on March 16, but there’s a catch. Only players who also own Pokemon Legends: Arceus will be able to see the Legendary God Pokemon.
Darkrai has also been added to both games but it doesn’t require you to have both. But we’ll get more into that later.

Players who also own Pokemon Legends: Arceus can now find a new item in their starting bedroom in the form of the Azure Flute. Taking this into the Spear Pillar atop Mount Coronet will trigger the event and Arceus, the God of Pkemon himself, shall appear. Imagine winning a fight against an omnipotent God and being able to own him and put him inside a tiny ball. Catching Arceus is a dream for many players.

While Arceus steals the sunny spotlight in this crossover, he isn’t the only one that is coming to town. Darkrai has also been added and he can be caught by more trainers since you don’t have to own both games.
To catch Darkrai, players must use the Mystery Gift feature to download the Member Card item. This will unlock a special building north east of Canalave City. The series of events will lead to encountering Darkrai and the chance to capture him.
