Pokémon Legends: Arceus Special Bonuses
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is finally here, and the Pokémon fans are ready to travel to the distant past and visit ancient times when Poké Balls were made of wood and Pokédex were notebooks where you would manually enter all your collected data.

Pokémon Legends: Arceus comes with many familiar features beloved by the fans of the series, and yet it reinvigorates the established formula with many new features and gameplay elements that blend perfectly into traditional Pokémon gameplay.

And then, of course, there's a vast and open world, full of mysteries and wild Pokémon to uncover, battle against them, and catch them!

The adventure awaits you and if you also play other Pokémon games, you will be delighted to hear that you are eligible to earn some unique rewards, completely free.

As you probably know already, Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a prequel to Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl, set in a bygone era of the Sinnoh region's history, when it was known as the Hisui region.

The game's developers, Game Freak, and Nintendo want to reward all the loyal fans of the series and to give special bonuses for all players who have previously played either Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pear.

You will be rewarded with a special research request for a chance to add the Mythical Pokémon Darkrai to your team.

This will become available to you in Jubilife Village after you finish the main story and view the game’s end credits.
