Pokémon is back with two remakes that are brighter than ever. Pokémon Sparkling Diamond and Pokémon Sparkling Pearl are available on Nintendo Switch, and if you too want to embark on adventures on Sinnoh, we show you how to catch the Fabulous Pokémon.
Before starting this guide and in order not to waste your time, know that you will be able to recover Mew and Jirachi only if you have saved games from previous Pokémon games. If you have played Pokémon Sword and Shield you will be able to collect Jirachi while Mew is offered to Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu / Eevee players. As for the adorable Manaphy, it is offered to all players who have joined the adventure of Pokémon Sparkling Diamond or Pokémon Sparkling Pearl before the deadline of the February 21, 2022. Essential information if you want to complete your Pokémon collection with these three fabulous companions.
You can recover Manaphy at two points in your adventure, the first, the most classic, happens when you obtain your third badge in the town of Voilaroc. This third badge will allow you to unlock the “Mystery Gifts“. Only, it is also possible for you to recover this functionality once your premier badge in the pocket. Once Pierrick and the members of Team Galaxie are defeated at Feli-Cite, go to the building just to your left. You can find a NPC south of the penultimate floor. Start a dialogue and choose the option “ALL HAPPY Wi-Fi CONNECTION“. You will thus unlock the”Mystery Gifts“and will receive Manaphy’s egg.
To receive this egg, go to the application “Mystery Gifts“then select the option”Trough Internet“. You will then receive Manaphy’s egg, whether you are a Nintendo Online subscriber or not. To hatch the egg, you will need to place it on your team and travel a little over 2500 steps for it to hatch. Attention, no need to save before hatching your Manaphy. Indeed, its statistics and its possible “Shiny” aspect are determined at the time of obtaining the Mystery Gift. You will therefore not be able to “farm” to obtain better IVs, to obtain it in Shiny or to change its nature.
Mew is a Fabulous Pokémon exclusive to players who have a save of Pokémon Lets’ Go, Pikachu / Evoli. To get it, nothing could be simpler, go to the city of Floraville which is a little north of Congratulated. Once you arrive in the village, you will have to go direction South West to find two NPCs. The one on the right will give you Mew if you’ve played Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu / Eevee. Unlike Manaphy, his statistics can be “farmed” using an upstream backup. On the other hand, it cannot appear in a Shiny version. Mew appears at level 1.
Jirachi is also a Fabulous Pokémon exclusive to former Pokémon players. This time it is the players of Pokémon Sword and Shield who will be able to recover it by also going to South West from Floraville. This time it is the NPC on the left who will offer you your Jirachi, and here too, his IV and his nature can be “farmed”. Just like Mew, he also cannot appear in a Shiny version. Jirachi appears at level 5.
And there you have it, your quest to obtain the Fabulous Pokémon is now over, place the filling of Regional Pokédex, the competitions to become the ultimate Champion of the League and then the capture of Legendary Pokémon. It’s true that there is plenty to do in these Pokémon remakes.
