How to get starter Pokemon in Pokemon Indigo Disk

Starter Pokemon aren’t available right away in the Indigo Disk DLC. In order to catch them, you need to grind out some BBQs and get BP.

To add starter Pokemon to the Terrarium, you need to collect BP and contribute 3,000 BP to the Terarium Club. This will boost the biodiversity of each biome in the Terrarium. Doing this will add Starter Pokemon and more to the biomes. Just make sure to grind BP because you need 12,000 overall to raise the biodiversity in each biome.
