It is possible to download a Manaphy egg via a Mystery Gift if you purchase Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl within the first three months of their release.
Since Manaphy Egg is an early purchase bonus, you can only download it between Friday, November 19, 2021 and Monday, February 21, 2022.
Once you have created your Manaphy, you can use it to obtain a Phione.

How to get the Manaphy Egg in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
Before you can get the Manaphy Egg in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl, there are four important pieces of information you need to consider.
The first is that the Manaphy Egg will only be available until Monday, February 21, 2022. Once this day passes, you will no longer be able to download the Manaphy Egg, so if you want this mythical Pokémon, be sure to follow the deadline.
The second is that you must download the software update, which will be released on Friday, November 19, for Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl to gain access to the Manaphy Egg.
As the above fact suggests, you will also need an internet connection to collect your Manaphy egg. Fortunately, you don’t need a Nintendo Switch Online membership, so don’t worry if you’re not signed up for this program.
Finally, and most importantly, you will first need to unlock the Mystery Gift option in your game. To do this, visit the Jubilife TV Center after you have obtained the first Gym badge and defeated the two Team Galactic Grunts at the northern exit of Jubilife City.
Once you are at Jubilife TV Center, head to the second floor and talk to the man who asks you about the type of programming you are interested in.
Select “Everyone Happy” and “Wi-Fi Connection” and once you’re done talking, save your game. You may need to close the game and reopen it for the Mystery Gift option to appear in your menu.
Getting to Jubilife City should take you about two hours and after speaking to this man you will have permanently unlocked the Mystery Gift.
Below you will find the steps you must complete to receive the Manaphy egg:
- Start Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Brilliant Pearl
- Start playing and open the X menu.
- Select ‘Mystery Gift’
- Select ‘Get over the Internet’ and connect to the Internet.
- Select the Manaphy egg from the gift list.
- The egg will arrive now and your game will automatically save.
With this accomplished, you can now begin walking around with the egg in your party and a Manaphy will soon be added to your Pokédex.
How to get a Phione in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
Phione is a Mythical Pokémon that can only be obtained in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl if you already have a Manaphy.
To obtain a Phione, you must follow the instructions in the previous section to obtain a Manaphy egg and then hatch the Manaphy inside it.
Next, you need to catch a Ditto if you don’t already have one.
Once you have both Pokémon, visit or continue playing until you reach the Pokémon Daycare in Solaceon Town. Here he places Manaphy and Ditto in the Pokémon Daycare.
Now all you have to do is wait until Manaphy and Ditto create an egg and when you hatch it, you will receive your Phione!
