To get Phione, you will have to breed two Manaphys, or a Manaphy and a Ditto. Now, as mentioned before, you can get a Phione only if you complete the main campaign. Ditto will not appear in the Pokemon Nursery before the post-game period.
Now, to get Phione, you will have to breed at the Pokemon Nursery located in Solaceon Town. Head over there, talk to the lady in the Nursery and choose to breed a Manaphy and a Ditto. If you have two Manaphys, you can choose to breed them too. Once the breeding process is done, collect the egg and hatch it. You can follow the tip below to hatch eggs faster.
Tip: A quick way to hatch your eggs in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl is to navigate a lot around the map – increase the number of steps. Also, instead of moving straight, move in circles or sideways as that increases the rate of step count per second.
Note that this event will end on February 21, 2021. So, collect your gifts before time runs out!
