How to pre-order platinum clothing in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
Game Freak is offering the clothes the protagonists wear in Pokémon Platinum as a free, time-limited pre-order bonus for Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Pokémon Platinum was the third game in the fourth generation of Pokémon games that succeeded the original Diamond and Pearl. Platinum had features and functions that weren’t in Diamond and Pearl, which included the world of warp and upgraded gyms.
Fans were hoping that some of those Platinum items would become Brilliant Diamond and Shinning Pearl. However, Platinum’s clothing is currently the only thing in the game that is part of the new remakes.
To get the Platinum clothing, players will need to have played a copy of the game by February 21, 2022. The games will be released on November 19, giving players a three-month window. Players will also need an internet connection, but do not need a Nintendo Online membership. If players are logged in, they can get the clothes from the Get Via Internet option in the Mystery Gift feature in the main menu of Brilliant Diamond and Shinning Pearl.
It’s the same way Game Freak handles The Baneful Fox mask in Legends: Arceus. It takes around two hours of play time before players can access the Mystery Gift feature, and they can change their outfit as soon as they reach the Metronome-style store in Veilstone City.
