Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl was a grand return of the beloved generation of Pokemon from yesteryear in late 2021. The adventure was familiar, but Game Freak and Nintendo aren’t quite done with it. After all, Pokemon Legends: Arceus also came out and brought its own fantastic adventure. Now, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl just got its latest update and it brings a crossover event in which players can meet, battle, and even catch Arceus. Check out what all Pokemon BDSP Version 1.3.0 has for you in the patch notes below.
