If you want to know where does Swablu spawn in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, then you’re in the right place. Read on ahead!

Where to Find Swablu in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

There are 2 major methods you can use to find Swablu:

Grand Underground

To find Swablu in the Grand Underground, follow these simple teps:

  1. Using your Explorer Kit, head straight into the Grand Underground. We recommend going in though either Jubilife City or Eterna City.
  2. Head Fountainspring Cave, Glacial Cave, Rocky Cave, Icy Cave, Whiteout Cave, or Spacious Cave.
  3. In these areas, Swablu can be found as an uncommon spawn, and hence, you may need o reset the Pokemon in the Hideaway a couple of times by exiting and re-entering.
  4. Once you run into a Swablu, weaken and capture it!


Once, you have gotten a hold of the PokeRadar, it is also possible to find a Swablu on Route 211 East. Swablu has a 12% spawn chance here, and you are bound to eventually run into one.

Alternatively, you can always trade with someone who is willing to give away their Swablu, as the easiest option out there.

Swablu evolves at Level 35 into Altaria, which switches its Normal typing into the powerful Dragon typing.
