On top of the early purchase bonus you get if you buy the game before May 9, Pokemon Legends: Arceus is offering a few freebies for dedicated Pokemon fans. Players who have save data for other Nintendo Switch Pokemon games like Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl will receive a few extra rewards in Pokemon Legends, including the chance to catch some mythical Pokemon. Here are all the bonuses and how to claim them.

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl bonuses

If you've played Pokemon Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl, you'll be able to receive two special bonuses in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

First, you'll get a Modern Team Galactic uniform for your character. You can pick up the outfit from the clothier in Jubilife Village after you've joined the Galaxy Expedition Team, roughly one hour into the game.

On top of that, you'll be able to embark on an exclusive request to catch the mythical Pokemon Darkrai. This request will become available after you've cleared the main story and watched the game's ending credits.

Pokemon Sword and Shield bonuses

You'll be able to claim two different bonuses if you've played Pokemon Sword or Shield.

First, you'll receive a special kimono styled after the mythical Pokemon Shaymin. As with the Modern Team Galactic uniform, you can pick up the outfit from the clothier any time after you've joined the Galaxy Expedition Team.
