Where to find all gift Pokémon in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

This list includes the infamous Everstone-holding Haunter.

Nothing beats getting free stuff, and us trainers are no different. So when NPCs in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl offer us a rare Pokémon that would have been difficult to find in the wild, we take it. There are quite a number of these gifted Pokémon in the Sinnoh remakes, so we’ll help you find all of them.
