A vital source of information in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, here's where you can get the Pokémon Watch, shortened to Pokétch.

Originally occupying the touch screen on the Nintendo DS, the Pokétch (Pokémon Watch) makes a return in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. As there's no second screen on the Switch, you'll be able to access it with the R button.

Where to get the Pokétch

Just like in the original titles, you'll find the Pokétch in Jubilife City.

Head to the Trainers School, where you'll bump into your rival. You should have a Parcel for him, given to you by his mother, so hand it over. He'll give you the Town Map in return.

Then, head into town. You'll be accosted by the boss of the Pokétch company, who asks for three coupons. There are three Clowns that have these coupons, and it's your job to find them.

Clown 2: Jubilife TV Station, in front of the screen with a Clefable on it.

Question: Can a Pokémon hold an item?

Clown 3: Standing in front of the Pokétch offices.

Question: Just like Pokémon, do the moves of Pokémon also have types?
