If you guys recall, Manaphy was in the Sinnoh Pokedex, but you could only obtain it through sending an egg over through Pokemon Ranger.

Pokemon Ranger obviously hasn't made a new game in over a decade now. How do you think we'll be able to get Manaphy in BDSP? I hope it's not just through Mystery Gift, that'd be really lame.

RANGER 4 CONFIRMED okay, no.

My wild hope, which I know is not likely but will hold onto until I am proven wrong, is that it'll be a Victini type thing where there's an event for it very early on, and it comes at a low enough level that you can use it throughout the game (or better yet, in egg form). That was so good in BW, and it'd be perfect for a mythical Pokemon that's known for hatching from an egg and being able to be "raised" by the player!!

I think it'll just become some sort of in game event that won't require us going to anything special irl. Or at the very least, they will add some sort of online mystery gift feature and give it away as a pre-order bonus

Ask for my friend code.

It's most likely going to be just another Mystery Gift. But who knows? In ORAS they gave us Deoxys as part of the postgame so maybe they do something similar with Manaphy.

I'm more of wanting Phione as that is the only mythical/legendary I have never obtained from gen 4.

Would be nice if the game boxes came with a 1 time use mystery gift code for a Manaphy. Kinda doubt it though.
Kinda hope they'll do something ingame for it, like ORAS did with Deoxys or Sword/Shield with Keldeo.

Would honestly love this but a big part of me feels like it'll just be a WiFi event like we've had with SwSh, where they just give you the special Pokémon/item without any story behind it. I miss when we got little stories/had reasons for getting things. :(
