What you need to know

  • Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are remakes of the generation four titles on the Nintendo DS.
  • Players can get special items and Pokémon through the Mystery Gift service.
  • A set of statues for the Grand Underground can now be obtained through Mystery Gift.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl released this month after a long wait for fans of the Sinnoh region. While most Pokémon remakes add new features from the current generation, Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl have opted to stay true to the original games as much as possible.

A new Mystery Gift distribution is available for players, offering shiny versions of the Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup statues for players to place in their secret base in the Grand Underground.

Here's how to unlock Mystery Gifts and obtain the statues:

  1. After obtaining your first gym badge, head back to Jubilife City.
  2. Go to the 2nd floor of the city's TV station and speak with the producer.
  3. When asked about their opinions on television, select the answer, "EVERYONE HAPPY WI-FI CONNECTION".
  4. You'll now be able to search for Mystery Gifts from the in-game menu.
  5. Press X to open the menu, and select "Mystery Gift"
  6. Select "Get with code/password"
  7. Enter the code "BDSPUNDERGR0UND", with the number zero in place of an O in the word "underground"
  8. Select "Pokémon Statue Gift"
  9. That's it! You'll now be able to enjoy your new statues.

Placing certain statues in the Grand Underground makes different types of Pokémon more likely to appear. If you're looking for specific types like grass, fire, and water types, these statues should help!
