Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl: How to Get Lugia
The Legendary Psychic/Flying-type Lugia, which is also the star of the celebrated Pokémon Silver and its Nintendo DS version, Pokémon SoulSilver, is one of the most popular and powerful legendary Pokémon in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl. With that out of the way, let’s look at how to obtain Lugia, the “Guardian of the Seas,” in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl.
How to Get Lugia in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
First and foremost, those who are currently playing the Brilliant Diamond version will be disappointed to learn that Lugia is only available in the Shining Pearl version. After defeating the Elite Four, Cynthia, and receiving your National Pokédex, which is given to those who pay Professor Rowan a visit to Sandgem Town after completing their Sinnoh Pokédex, Shining Pearl players can find and obtain the Legendary Pokémon on Ramanas Park, a postgame area only available after defeating the Elite Four, Cynthia, and receiving your National Pokédex.
You must go there after unlocking the area and exchanging your Mysterious Shards for a Squall Slate. However, the Squall Slate can only be purchased after obtaining three discovery Slates and three Kanto Slates. After obtaining the Squall Slate, simply proceed to the park’s exterior area and proceed to the Squall Room, which is located northeast of the entrance, by a shore. Simply enter the location after finding it and lay the slate to fight Lugia. To summarise how to find Lugia in Pokémon Shining Pearl, follow these steps:
- Defeat both the Elite Four and Cynthia.
- Get the National Pokédex.
- Go to Ramanas Park and buy the Squall Slate.
- Go to the Squall Room
- Place the slate on the pedestal.
- Battle and capture Lugia.
