Gotta catch even more!

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: The Teal Mask brought back fan favorite Pokémon and introduced us to some (adorable) new faces. At the beginning of the DLC, players are given the Kitakami Pokédex and the task of registering all 200 Pokémon in Kitakami. But what can players expect as a reward for completing the Kitakami dex? Spoiler alert: not much!

Kitakmi Pokedex Completion Reward — How to Get the Glimmering Charm in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

The grand prize for catching and registering all 200 Kitakmi Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is the Glimmering Charm. You also receive a diploma featuring gorgeous watercolor drawings reminiscent of early Pokémon art. Finally, a single Moon Ball awaits at the end of the Pokédex reward track.

The Glimmering Charm is a Key Item that increases the number of Tera Shards received from Tera Raid Battles. The Glimmering Charm is nowhere near as exciting as the Shiny Charm reward for completing the Paldea Pokédex, but it’s a decent bonus nonetheless.

The diploma is an image you can screenshot and send to friends or post on social media. While the Glimmering Charm isn’t the greatest reward ever, the nostalgic art tribute was more than enough to put a smile on my face.

How to Receive the Reward for Completing the Kitakami Pokédex

To pick up the Glimmering Charm and your diploma in Pokémon SV, we need to pay a visit to our good friend Jacq. He’s just past the bridge east of Mossui Town. If this is your first time talking to him in Kitakami, he’ll give you an egg containing one of three Sinnoh starters: Turtwig, Chimchar, or Piplup.

After Jacq has entrusted you with a literal baby, talk to him again to receive the Glimmering Charm and your diploma. If you haven’t done so already, don’t forget to collect the remaining prizes on the reward track in the Pokédex app itself.

Pressing the X button while viewing the Pokédex will open the reward track. Once you’ve registered 90 Pokémon in the Kitakami dex, you unlock a new prize for every 10 species you record up to 200.

Don’t worry if you didn’t know this existed. It took me, and many others, a long time to realize this mechanic existed on the original Paldea Pokédex. These are all the rewards for the Kitakami Pokédex:
