Definitely, the two remakes Pokemon, Sparkling Diamond and Sparkling Pearl, have not finished talking about them. While not long ago, players discovered a trick allowing them to clone their Pokémon, now the difficulty of the games is called into question. In question ? The possibility for players to have three legendary Pokémon very early in history: Mew, Jirachi and Manaphy. Indeed, even before having their second Pokémon badge, players have the opportunity to collect these three Pokémon. Manaphy, for example, can be obtained right after defeating Pierre and members of Team Galaxie in Féli-Cité. Having these three fabulous Pokémon would make the two remakes way too simple according to players.

Initially, when players discovered a new opus Pokemon, it was necessary to complete a whole course before hoping to capture one or more legendary Pokémon. It was therefore necessary to have a certain level and a certain knowledge of the weaknesses of the desired Pokémon to be able to start the confrontation. Nevertheless, the two remakes Sparkling Diamond & Sparkling Pearl Pokémon seem to have shaken this habit. Indeed, it is possible for them to obtain three legendary Pokémon quite quickly in the game, making the continuation of the adventure much easier than it should have been.

If you have played previous titles Pokemon, you most certainly know that Nintendo implemented, a few years ago, the possibility for players to receive gifts by connecting their console to Wi-Fi and entering a specific code.

Indeed, in the remakes Sparkling Diamond & Sparkling Pearl Pokémon, two fabulous Pokémon can thus be obtained by the system of “Mystery Gifts via the option “Via Internet“(in the case of Manaphy) or as a reward for your loyalty to the franchise if a backup of Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu or Eevee is present on your console (for Mew) or if you have played Pokémon Sword and Shield (for Jirachi).

While it is always nice for players to have Legendary Pokémon on their team, the issue here is that all three affected Pokémon can be obtained. even before the second badge, giving players early access to powerful attacks. Getting Mew, Jirachi, and Manaphy so easily (and so quickly) not only takes away any meaning from their presence in the game, but also any sense of accomplishment that comes with winning an arena, which is particularly a shame. . With the upcoming release of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, we hope that Nintendo will not make the same mistake, at the risk of disappointing the community.
