Trivia

  • This is the second event legendary Pokémon, which was thought only to be received at a Nintendo event. However in the Japanese version of Diamond/Pearl, it can be caught through a glitch involving Surf in the room of the first Elite Four member.

  • Shaymin is, as of Generation IV, the shortest legendary Pokémon.
  • Although Shaymin is a legendary Pokémon, normal wild Pokémon battle music plays.
  • Shaymin is implied to be behind the creation of Floaroma Town, as one person notes it was a barren wasteland till one day flowers mysteriously covered it all.
  • Marley makes brief references to Shaymin if spoken with during an excursion in Victory Road. She wants to reach the smooth rock on Route 224.
  • Cheaters can reach Shaymin by using the infamous walk anywhere cheat. If they head north of the white rock on Route 224, they will reach the Seabreak Path in less than ten steps. They can then follow it straight to Flower Paradise.
  • Shaymin seems to appear only when someone gives thanks for a significant blessing in their life. A girl in Floaroma Town states that the flowers the town is famous for appeared after someone gave thanks for nature's blessings. With Oak's Letter Shaymin will lead the player to Flower Paradise after they give thanks for their Pokémon journey at the white rock on Route 224.
