Encounter Legendary Pokémon in Ramanas Park
New to this release, Ramanas Park is a facility you can visit after entering the Hall of Fame. Take just one step inside, and you’ll see Ramanas roses blooming proudly throughout this beautiful, expansive park. There are caves dotted throughout the park, and the chambers inside them are filled with a mysterious atmosphere. It seems you’ll be able to encounter Legendary Pokémon there. Stand against the astounding power of Legendary Pokémon with your own fully trained Pokémon team.
Slates are the key to encountering Legendary Pokémon
Inside the rooms of Ramanas Park are pedestals, and it’s said that if you insert the corresponding slate into a pedestal, a Legendary Pokémon will appear. It’s unclear exactly how these slates can be obtained, so you’ll have to do some research as you explore the Sinnoh region.
The Genome Slate corresponds to the Genome Room. It seems there are other, different slates as well.
Legendary Pokémon you can encounter
In Ramanas Park, you can encounter a variety of Legendary Pokémon. Some of these Legendary Pokémon can only be encountered in one game version or the other, but you can still try to get them on your team through other means, such as by trading with other Trainers.
In Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, it’s possible to encounter Raikou, Entei, Suicune, and Ho-Oh.
In Pokémon Shining Pearl, it’s possible to encounter Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, and Lugia.
Befriend a Mythical Pokémon as a perk for linking with Pokémon Sword, Pokémon Shield, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!
If you have saved data from one of the qualifying games on your Nintendo Switch system when you start Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Pokémon Shining Pearl, you’ll be able to get a Mythical Pokémon within the game.
