Pokémon Brilliant Diamond And Shining Pearl Version Exclusives And Differences

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond And Shining Pearl Image

As with all of the other mainline Pokémon games, both Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl each have exclusive pocket monsters that can only be caught in each version.

This is the main difference between each game, an approach that has long been used to encourage players to buy a different version to their friends or family members – or for many to buy both copies of the game – so that they can trade whichever Pokémon they are unable to catch with others.

Thanks to our friends at Serebii, we have been able to start listing out the version exclusive Pokémon that appear in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl. With the games now launching around the world, the current tally is that there are 37 Pokémon that are exclusive to each version:
