Ramanas Park Slates in Pokemon BDSP are special items that you can use in the park in order to spawn different Legendary Pokemon that aren’t native to the Sinnoh region. Basically, it works the same as Pal Park did in the original Diamond and Pearl games. If you’ve played those, you’ll be familiar with how Ramanas works. If not, well, we’ll show you how to unlock Ramanas Park and how the Slates work in our Ramanas Park Slates Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl guide.
How to Unlock Ramanas Park in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
To unlock Ramanas Park in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl or BDSP, you first need to beat the Elite Four. The next step is to discover and see each and every one of the 150 Sinnoh Pokemon in the game to get the National Dex. The next step is to go back to Rowan’s lab in Sandgem Town and talk to the professor. A special guest is going to arrive, aka professor Oak, and he will upgrade your Pokedex to the National Dex. More importantly for our goals here, Oak will tell you about Ramanas Park at the end of Route 221. So, head over there and see what there is to be seen. Not that you’ll see much without the Slates, which brings us to our next point.
Ramanas Park Slates in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
