Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Legendary Pokémon: Vesprit, Cresselia, Mewtu & Co. to catch

 There are tons of Legendary Pokémon in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. There were many in the original games, and in the remake you can grab even more of the mighty monsters. In this guide, we'll list all of the Legendary Pokémon and tell you how to catch them!

Pokémon Radiant Diamond & Luminous Pearl Legendary Pokémon: Vesprit, Cresselia, Mewtu & Co. to catch

Mew and Jirachi

You can get the first two Legendary Monsters just a few hours after starting the game. Mew and Jirachi are a bonus for all players who have played Pokémon Sword / Shield and Pokémon Let's Go, Pikachu / Eevee and have saved data on their console.

To get the Mysterious Pokémon, you have to talk to the man and woman in the lower left corner in Flori . You will receive Mew from the woman if you have Let's Go, Pikachu / Eevee save data. The man, on the other hand, gives you a jirachi if you have a sword / shield score on the console.

Manaphy and Phione

In the course of the game you will activate the option "Secret Gift" in the menu. Select "Receive via Internet" here and grab the Manaphy Egg, which serves as a bonus for early buyers. You can receive the Mysterious Pokémon in this way until February 21, 2022 .

If you hand over Manaphy and Ditto to the Pokémon Hort in Trostu , you will be able to pick up an egg there after a while. Another Mysterious Pokémon will hatch from this egg, namely Phione!

Dialga and Palkia

You will automatically encounter the cover Pokémon of the editions Diamant (Dialga) and Perle (Palkia) in the course of the story. Be sure to save the game beforehand so as not to accidentally defeat them in combat. After you have caught them, you can still find an Adamant Orb or White Orb in the back of the arena , which increases the attacks of the Legendary Pokémon.

One of the goals in the game is to complete the Sinnoh Dex. To do this, you have to have seen each Pokémon once. In order to receive the entry of the missing Dialgas or Palkias, you have to visit the eldest in Elyses after winning the Pokémon League .

Within the story you will encounter Dialga or Palkia depending on your edition.

Selfe, Vesprit and Tobutz

You will also encounter these three legendary Pokémon in the story. After you've caught Dialga / Palkia, you can grab these legendary monsters right afterwards. They are waiting for you at their original locations that you have already visited.

  • Selfe : Strength Shore west of Blizzach
  • Vesprit : Truth Shore northwest of Zweiblattdorf
  • Tobutz : Bold bank south of Schleiede

While you can fight Selfe and Tobutz normally, Vesprit has a special feature. It is a wandering Pokémon. That means it disappears when you arrive and you have to look for it all over Sinnoh. If you are in the right place, it will then appear in a random battle.

Fortunately, you don't have to look for Vesprit completely haphazardly. Pay a visit to the Pokétch Society in Jubelstadt. You will receive the "Landkarte" Pokétch app from the president. This app shows the current position of Vesprit. There's no point in chasing Vesprit, as you change your position immediately. Instead, you should walk back and forth between two routes until Vesprit is near you.

If you have finally found Vesprit, it will immediately flee after one round. Immediately you do not want to use your master ball, you have to prevent Vesprit from escaping. A Pokémon with the Horror Eye attack (e.g. Nebulak) is suitable for this. Keep in mind, however, that the horror look only works as long as the user Pokémon is participating in the fight. If Vesprit turns off your Pokémon, it will then be able to flee again.


You can only catch Cresselia and all other Legendary Pokémon once you have completed the Sinnoh Dex and received the National Dex. Then go to Fleetburg and talk to the sick person who is trapped in a nightmare. Now it goes by ship to the Crescent Island, where you meet Cresselia. Like Vesprit it will flee and you have to pursue it through Sinnoh - the Pokétch helps here too.


If you are in possession of the Nationaldex, you can go to the Kahlberg. A trainer (Avenaro) will join you and fight several double battles with you. At the end of the path in Kahlberg you will find an item that will become the property of the trainer. This leaves you afterwards. Now go to the survival area and speak to that trainer again. Follow him to the mountain again and finally meet Heatran at the point where you found the item for Avenaro.


In addition to the national dex, you need the three legendary golems Regirock, Regice and Registeel, which you can get thanks to the new Hamanasu Park. Although it is possible to find Regigigas at any time, you can only wake it up if you have all three golems on the team. It slumbers in the Blizzach Temple in Blizzach.


If you have the National Dex, you can catch this legendary dragon-type Pokémon in the Cave of Reversal. The cave can be found east of Route 214 by a lake and forms a gigantic, natural maze to traverse. You have about 30 room crossings available, otherwise you will safely end up at the entrance of the cave. Pay attention to the levels of the wild Pokémon in the cave, which give an indication of whether you are on the right track. The higher the level, the closer you are to Giratina!

Darkrai and Shaymin

These two Mysterious Pokémon are included in the game code, but cannot be found yet. You need a certain item for this, which the developers will probably save for a future event.
