The other event-only Pokémon for the {{bp|Generation IV}} games Diamond, Pearl and {{bp|Pokémon Platinum|Platinum}} were previously announced after appearing in several ways on the official Web site. {{p|Manaphy}}'s egg, andalong with {{p|Darkrai}}'s and {{p|Shaymin}}'s shadows, respectively made intermittent appearances on the site before their official revelation.
