Mythical Pokemon are appearing in Pokemon Shining Diamond & Shining Pearl, and you'll need to talk to very specific NPCs to earn them. Very early in the game, you can claim up to three Mythical Pokemon; Mew, Jirachi and Manaphy. They're all cute little babies and a great way to start your adventures in the Sinnoh region.


Mythical Pokemon are rare Pokemon that are even harder to find than Legendary Pokemon – and there's a good reason for that. Legendary Pokemon can be found and captured in-game with Pokeballs. Mythical Pokémon cannot be found anywhere. They're not available unless you meet very specific meta requirements, like having save files for previous Pokemon games on your Nintendo Switch console. Learn all about obtaining Mythical Pokemon and permanently unlocking the Mystery Gift feature in the comprehensive guide below.

The mythical Pokemon Meow, Jirachi, and manaphy are available in THE TWO VERSIONS – whether you have Shiny Diamond or Shiny Pearl, you will be able to access all three of these Legendary Pokémon.

In this game, Mew and Jirachia are considered mythical pokemon – they can only be acquired by completing a special task related to other games in the franchise on Nintendo Switch and cannot be actively captured in-game.
