There are a lot more than just these. But the one that should be mentioned is Munchlax. Munchlax used to only have a 1% encounter rate on 4 random spawning honey trees.

The best Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Exclusives are Rampardos and Honchkrow, which means that the brilliant diamond has a better variety of pokémon. The reason we chose Rampardos and Honchkrow is that both of them are pretty strong. Ramapardos has the 5th highest attack stats in the game. Honchkrow is so bulky that it will only die if you use a brave bird two times and it hits with a super effective move two times.

But it is unnecessary to buy just one, you can also buy the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Double pack. The Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl double pack will cost you a few dollars less, so it is more profitable compared to buying the two games one by one.

So wrapping the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining pearl: Grand Underground Guide I hope that Legends Arceus is as good or better than Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. I am pretty sure that unlike Pokemon brilliant diamond and shining pearl release date fans might be upset about legends arceus’ release date.

There is not much difference between the remakes and the original. The only difference is that you can catch Pokémon and get more items in the grand underground which is fun. The feeling you get when you get a Pokemon which you could not get back then is priceless.
