Debuted since Pokemon Silver and Gold, the Mystery Gift system has become a staple feature in the Pokemon series. As its name suggests, Mystery Gift lets you acquire unique items (or even Pokemon) by entering special codes or connecting to the internet when an event is underway. However, to redeem any codes and use the Mystery Gift feature, you have to unlock it first in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl: Unlocking Mystery Gift
To unlock the Mystery Gift feature, you have to:
- Get the first Gym badge from Roark the Rock-specialist in Oreburgh City.
- Defeat the Galactic Grunts Double Battle in the northern part of Jubilife City.
- Go into the Jubilife City TV Station, then talk to the TV producer on the third floor.
- Answer his question by picking the “EVERYONE HAPPY WI-FI CONNECTION” option. Selecting the other options will give you stickers though, so you might want to do that first.
- You can now access Mystery Gift by pressing X in the start menu.
It’s worth noting that you can only get a Mystery Gift once per save data. But if you have each copy of Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, you can get the same Mystery Gift on both games once.
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl: How To Redeem and List of Mystery Gift
As noted above, press the X button in the start many to access Mystery Gift whenever and wherever you want. There are two ways to redeem Mystery Gift:
- Get via Internet: Connect to the internet via WiFi to download any currently running online events.
- Get with Code/Password: Enter a promotional code to get items.
- You can also check any Mystery Gift you have redeemed by selecting the Check Mystery Gifts option.
