Shaymin in the flower paradise of Pokémon Diamond, Pokémon Perl or in the recently released remakes Pokémon Radiant Diamond and Pokémon Luminous Pearl catching is not that easy, as you either need Eich’s letter or have to exploit a glitch. With Eich’s letter it is possible to enter the groyne path on route 224 and thus to get to the flower paradise, where you can challenge Shaymin.
This could lock the Eichs Brief event when it officially releases, so be careful! This error is possible on other routes using the same method shown in the video. If you’ve already defeated the trainer below, there are still other ways you can do this method.
In theory, the glitch shouldn’t be too joking with your score. However, unforeseen events can always occur and since there is currently no access to Pokémon HOME, we advise you not to use it if you are not 100% sure. The official event is still to come – so just be patient!
We’re focusing on the remakes and a glitch here! First of all, let’s take a look at the Surf Glitch Pokémon Radiant Diamond and Pokémon Luminous Pearl an:
Not quite understood yet? Pay close attention to the steps shown in the following video and follow these instructions to get to the flower paradise with Shaymin.
- The coach shown at the beginning of the video is important – so please don’t beat him first!
Black belt Christoph is on the beach on Route 224. You can reach it after you are a Sinnoh Champ and have the National Pokédex.
- Press “A” several times as fast as you can while turning to face the water. It’s a matter of timing as soon as the trainer sees you!
- Follow the route shown in the video, save at the top of the stairs and restart the game.
- If everything has been done correctly, you should be surfing the top of the stairs. Now just follow the route like Traiver does in the video.
If everything went well in step 2, you will be asked whether you would like to use surfers after the fight, which allows you to surf on land. If you now follow the rest of the steps in the video, you can catch the mysterious Pokémon Shaymin – even without a letter.
A similar surf glitch already existed in Pokémon Rot and Pokémon blue. For example, they came to MS Anne after the ship had actually already left. Try it out and show us a picture on social media as soon as you have Shaymin!
If all of the above explanations still don’t help you, PokeTips has an 8-minute video on YouTube that goes through all the steps again:
If your Shaymin in Pokémon Radiant Diamond or Pokémon Luminous Pearl you can pick up a special item in Flori, which helps Shaymin to develop further. A blonde young lady can be found in Flori and will hand you a particularly rare item if you speak to her while you have the mysterious Pokémon Shaymin on your team. It’s to the left of the wooden sign near the Pokémon Center. When Shaymin wears a Gracidea, the item that is given to one of the NPC’s in the game, it changes shape to its zenith shape.
By the way, if you have a lot of time, you can also do a so-called Shaymin Shiny Hunt to take a shimmering Shaymin with you from the flower paradise!
