For Pokemon players who have caught the legendary Pokemon known as Shaymin through Oak’s Letter, which is available until March 27, they may want to know how to change the little grass Pokemon’s form to its Sky form. This new form changes Shaymin’s typing from just a Grass-type to a Grass and Flying-type. If you are unsure how to change Shaymin’s form in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, we have got you covered.

How to Change Shaymin’s Form in Pokemon BDSP

To change Shaymin’s form in Pokemon BDSP, head over to Floarama Town after catching the Pokemon on route 224 after getting Professor Oak’s Letter to pick up an item called the Gracidea. To get this item, you will need to show Shaymin to a blonde woman northwest of the Pokemon Center. Once she sees your Shaymin, she will give you the Gracidea.

Once you have the Gracidea, you can give it to your Shaymin to change its form into Sky Forme. Shaymin’s form can only be changed until 7:59 p.m. based on your local time. Shaymin will also revert back to its Land Forme if it gets frozen in battle.


Here is a comparison between Shaymin’s stats in Land Forme and Sky Forme:
