The Poketch is among the defining features of the original releases, so no one was surprised to see it return in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, coming with the same useful functions that have helped Pokemon Trainers become champions of the Sinnoh League back in the day.
Among the many useful Poketch apps that you can get in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl is the Marking Map, an app that will be needed to catch some of the game’s Legendary Pokemon. Here’s how to get it.
How to Get the Marking Map App in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
The Marking Map Poketch App can be obtained fairly easily in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, although you will need to make some progress in the game before you can receive it.
After obtaining your third Gym Badge, head over to Jubilife City and speak with the President of the Poketch Company. He will give you the Marking Map app and explain how you can use it to place different markers on the map. The app is fundamental to catch roaming Pokemon Cresselia and Mesprit, as they will roam all over Sinnoh once you encounter them for the first time, making it almost impossible to catch them with the Marking Map.
