Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl: Walkthrough & Guides
Swarms & Locations in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
0

Once you've unlocked the National Dex in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, you may just come across a Pokémon Swarm. But how do they work?

Once you've beaten the Elite Four and unlocked the National Dex by talking to Professor Rowan, Swarms will begin to appear in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

These are groups of the same Pokémon that you can catch as normal. The swarm available changes each day, so you'll need to find out where it is.

To check a swarm's location:

  • For the first instance, visit Lucas/Dawn in Twinleaf Town, and speak to their little sister.
  • Following this first interaction, you can simply bring up the menu to check swarm locations.
