Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl feature a profusion of Pokémon that players can find and get in the game. Both games are set in the fictional Sinnoh region, where players are tasked to complete an encyclopedic record of Pokémon known as a Pokédex. And, having a few different types of Pokémon handy will make this task easier.
Similar to many other Pokémon games, Anime, and other forms of media, we have the iconic fire element Pokémon Charmander and its evolved versions Charmeleon and Charizard in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl that players can get by progressing through the game and performing certain actions.
In this guide, we will talk about how exactly you can get Charizard in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
How to Get Charizard
In Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, you have to catch and evolve a Charmander into Charmeleon and then into Charizard.
You can get Charmander after completing the game’s main storyline. To do that, you have to beat the current Elite Four and Cynthia. Once that is done, you will have to complete the Sinnoh Pokedex by seeing all 150 Pokémon.
Once you are done completing your Pokédex, go to Sandgem Town and meet with Professor Rowan. Talk to the professor, and you will unlock the National Pokédex required for spawning Charmander.
Now, make your way towards the Snowpoint City fight area by talking to the Sailor. Once you reach there, make use of the Explorer Kit to get access to the Grand Underground.
In the Grand Underground, you will find Charmander. Catch it and use a Rare Candy on the Charmander to evolve him into a Charmeleon. If you are out of Rare Candy, simply use the Charmander to fight wild Pokémon to raise his level.
Once you get Charmeleon, you can follow the same steps to evolve him into a Charizard.
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are currently available on the Nintendo Switch platform.
