Another statue mystery gift promo
If you want another mystery gift promo in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, you have a few more days. This one runs through December 25, and deals with more Grand Underground statues. By inputting the code “MERRYCHR1STMAS,” (via Serebii.net) you can go for Rhyperior, Electivire, Glaceon, Pachirisu and Lucario statues. If you’re keeping track, this is the second statue mystery gift promo, as the first run granted players access to Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup.
If you just started, you can unlock the mystery gift feature early after the first gym battle. Just head to Jubilife City and enter the TV station on the north side of the map. Then go to the third floor and talk to the TV producer and pick “everyone happy wi-fi connection.” Boom! You’re good. Or you can defeat the third gym leader and just pick it up naturally. Your choice. You can find detailed instructions of that process here.
To actually use these Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl special statues, you’ll need to access the Grand Underground and create a Secret Base: a hideout of sorts that you can revisit. You can find instructions for getting into the Grand Underground here!
