The Brillant Diamond & Shining Pearl Version 1.3 patch just released with some exciting Mythical Pokemon joining the game. Arceus and Darkrai will soon be availble to players after they meet certain conditions. Some players aren’t happy with the fact they have to play other Pokemon games to meet these conditions while others see it as a reward. The bottom line is it’s just promotional material to get players interested in playing other Pokemon related games but there are a lot of things you’ll need to do to get these Pokemon. Here’s how to get Arceus and Darkrai in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
