Pokemon Brilliant Diamon and Shining Pearl are introducing a new area of the game called Ramanas Park, where you can meet legendary Pokemon in the post-game after entering the Hall of Fame.
Take just one step inside, and you’ll see Ramanas roses blooming proudly throughout this beautiful, expansive park. There are caves dotted throughout the park, and the chambers inside them are filled with a mysterious atmosphere. It seems you’ll be able to encounter Legendary Pokémon there. Stand against the astounding power of Legendary Pokémon with your own fully trained Pokémon team.
This seems to be the remakes equivalent to PalPark from the original Diamond and Pearl, the area you would go to transfer Pokemon from the GBA games, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed, and Leaf Green.
Slates are the key to encountering Legendary Pokémon
Inside the rooms of Ramanas Park are pedestals, and it’s said that if you insert the corresponding slate into a pedestal, a Legendary Pokémon will appear. It’s unclear exactly how these slates can be obtained, so you’ll have to do some research as you explore the Sinnoh region.
The Genome Slate corresponds to the Genome Room. It seems there are other, different slates as well.
Legendary Pokémon you can encounter
In Ramanas Park, you can encounter a variety of Legendary Pokemon. Some of these Legendary Pokemon can only be encountered in one game version or the other, but you can still try to get them on your team through other means, such as by trading with other Trainers.
