Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl to offer Manaphy Egg as early-purchase bonus
The Pokemon Company has announced a special early-purchase bonus for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl. If you buy the games and connect online by February 21, 2022, you can receive a Manaphy Egg.
Some additional information is below:
You can receive your Egg by choosing Get via Internet from the Mystery Gift function in the game until February 21, 2022. By putting it into your party and carrying it around on your adventure through the Sinnoh region, you’ll be able to hatch the Egg and gain Manaphy as a companion.
An internet connection is required to receive the Manaphy Egg, but a Nintendo Switch Online subscription (paid) is not required.
It takes approximately two hours of play time before you are able to access the Mystery Gift function.
Players can check Manaphy and Ditto into the Pokemon Nursery in Solaceon Town, where they’ll find an Egg. Players can take that Egg with them on their adventure, and if you leave it in your party, it will hatch into a Phione.
