In the Pokemon game Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, there are many Pokemon that players can collect throughout the game and enjoy all their abilities and quirks. But the exact amount of Pokemon in the game is about 151 pokemon to find, all being different types of Pokemon that players can collect along their journey through the game.
How Many Pokemon are in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl?
With 151 pokemon in Brilliant Diamond Shining Pearl, a common goal among players is to catch them all, but a common misconception is that by collecting all the Pokemon a player would have beaten the game, which is not the case. Once a player has completed big tasks and has collected all 151 pokemon, Nintendo has created endgame tasks for players in order for them to continue the journey, as the end is not always the end but just another beginning. This opens up an opportunity for players to access the National Dex.
The National Dex contains information for an additional 342 characters to search for in the game. To get the National Dex a player needs to do is defeat all 151 pokemon and the four elite trainers. Collecting all of the pokemon is not a requirement, but a player is free to do so if they choose to make that a goal of theirs. Once the National Dex is achieved, an additional 342 characters are unlocked and ready to be discovered.
