What is Ramanas Park?

Ramanas Park is a post-game area where you can catch certain Legendary Pokémon from previous generations. It replaces Pal Park in the original Diamond and Pearl games. You can access Ramanas Park after entering the Hall of Fame in the Pokémon League.

Where to Find Ramanas Park

Like the old Pal Park, you can reach Ramanas Park by traveling along Route 221, accessible by heading south from Sandgem Town and cutting through Routes 219 and 220. The Hidden Move Surf is required. However, you cannot enter the actual park until you’re the Champion.

What to do in Ramanas Park

Within the park, there are various enigmatic rooms, where you can insert slates you’ve obtained from the Grand Underground. By placing the correct slate in the pedestal inside the room, you can make Legendary Pokémon appear, then fight and catch them.
