Pokémon BDSP: How Trainers Get Arceus in Pokémon BDSP
The good news is Arceus is heading to Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl (BDSP) after the update. While much of the world is moving ahead with the release of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, the Pokémon BDSP is cleaning up any remaining content holes it leaves behind. In the original Pokémon Diamond and Pearl on the Nintendo DS, Arceus was never officially released worldwide outside of the movie's promotional campaign. There is an in-game event in the code for the player to access using Action Replay, but otherwise, since the event is never posted, it's never possible to get one. With this remake, Game Freak corrects its mistakes with a new event.
The Arceus is known as the creator of all things in the Pokémon world. Introduced in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, it has the ability to turn into one of 18 available types depending on the plate it holds. Arceus Plates can be found in Pokémon BDSPs scattered throughout the area. Trainers will have a chance to catch it in this game starting March 16. It all starts with players getting Azure Flute.
In order to get Arceus in Pokémon BDSP, trainers will need to update their game to version 1.3.0. Additionally, players will also need to have a full Pokémon Legends: Arceus save the file on their Nintendo Switch. This means that the trainer needs to complete every main mission in this game, as just one save file is not enough. Also, it's worth mentioning that players need to beat the Elite Four and collect the National Dex. Otherwise, players will have to wait until they reach a point in the game.
How to catch Arceus in Pokémon BDSP
This will automatically download the Azure Flute project into the player's package. Now, head to Spear Pillar and Azure Flute will create a staircase to Arceus. The trainer can then save the game and fight and capture it. These are the last legendary Pokémon from the Sinnoh region for trainers to catch. A future April update will also give trainers a chance to find Darkrai.
Both Pokémon can be found in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, but there are benefits to having both games. The two entries do offer completely different experiences. This appears to be the final content update for Pokémon BDSP, and it's likely that Pokémon Home support will soon follow suit. This way, trainers can put all their favorite Pokémon in the same spot. With the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet later this year, it might not be a bad idea to have an extra Arceus.
If trainers don't want to grab Pokémon by themselves, buying Arceus and Darkrai directly from PKMBuy is the best option. Of course, PKMBuy not only has Shiny BDSP Pokemon For Sale but also other BDSP held Items, which are worth exploring.
