In Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, Garchomp is a Pokémon that is a force to be reckoned with. If you've already been granted the title of League Champion, you'll know that he's tough. He's also pretty easy to get on your own team after getting a Gable or Gabite, too.
In this guide, we explain how to get Gable or Gabite, and evolve them into Garchomp.
How To Get Gable and Gabite
Luckily, in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, Gable and Gabite are pretty easy to come by. Simply hop down into the Grand Underground and enter one of the following Pokémon Hideaways and a Gable or Gabite is bound to spawn sooner or later for you to catch.
Pokémon Hideaways where Gable and Gabite can be found:
- Fountainspring Cave
- Riverbank Cave
- Still-Water Cavern
How To Evolve Gabite Into Garchomp
Again, getting yourself a Garchomp in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl is easy. To evolve, the Pokémon simply requires that you EXP grind and level them up. Gable evolves into Gabite at Level 24, then Gabite evolves into Garchomp at Level 48.
If you're even luckier, the Gable or Gabite you catch in the Grand Underground may already be levelled. In this case, feed them a Rare Candy or have them lead a few battles, and they'll evolve in no time at all.
That's how easy it is to add a Garchomp to your party in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl! For some more interesting evolutions, we recommend catching an Eevee, a Ditto, and then looking into both our evolution guide and breeding guide. With these to hand, you'll have some fascinating Eeveelutions in no time.
