SHAYMIN starts at Lv. 50 and comes with a Micle Berry. It’s Original Trainer is Movie11 (how awesome is that) and he comes with the following moves!! Seed Flare (hot stuff!), Aromatherapy (soothing stuff!), Substitute (tricky stuff!), and Energy Ball (Kinetic stuff!).

To get a Shaymin all you have to do is follow the instructions below!

1. Start up your copy of Pokemon on your Nintendo DS. You can use any DS version Pokemon.
