Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl have recently came out and players are exploring every corner of this game to find new, hidden content. This game is a remake of the old Pokémon Diamond and Pearl games, taking place in the Sinnoh Region. Most of it is similar, minus graphical differences, but there are also new Easter eggs and other content to explore. For example, in Diamond and Pearl you’ll find there’s a library in Canalave City where you can read books about lore and myths from the region. All of these stories have remained the same in BDSP except for one book. There’s an entirely new book titled ‘The Sea’s Legend’ that describes a story of a human traveling with Pokémon to find a “Prince”. The story reads as follows.
“Once upon a time in the East Sea, there was a Pokemon known as the prince. A brave human asked Pokemon living in the sea to let them see the prince. Mantyke, Buizel, and a Qwilfish with huge spikes acknowledged the human’s bravery and joined them. Together, they set off in a boat over the sunset-streaked sea, sailing through the ocean gate stretched over the waves. News of this reached the ears of the prince, who went to meet the brave little party at the Seaside Hollow.”
Theories & The Legends: Arceus Map
In the movie ‘Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea‘ Manaphy is known as the Prince of the Sea, so this myth could be referring to Manaphy when it says “Prince”. The references to this movie don’t stop there, though. On the cover of this movie, you’ll see a Buizel and Mantyke. Qwilfish is also in this movie but plays a smaller role. The myth could just be a reference to this movie but the story doesn’t really match and this movie took place in a different region altogether. This leads us to believe there’s more to this myth than just a reference. It could be a hint at a new Pokémon movie, similar to Temple of the Sea, or some lore within the new Pokémon Legends: Arceus game.
A map of the Hisui region for the upcoming Legends: Arceus game has been shown and we can already connect similar details from this map to this short story. We know this is the East Sea because there is a blue Shellos near the coast. There are two types of Shellos, a pink one and a blue one. The pink Shellos is only seen in the West Sea while the blue one is only seen in the East Sea. In the East Sea, on the map, we also see a small sail boat on the East Peninsula. This could be the boat that referred to in the story when they sail to meet the Prince. Though, we’re not sure where this “Seaside Hollow” is. It could very well be right where that boat is on the map, or somewhere else. For now we’ll just have to wait to play Pokémon Legends: Arceus next year to find more details on this story.
