Fisherman are so kind.

Fishing! While generally known as the “waiting man’s game” in the real world, it only takes you a couple of seconds to get something on your hook in the Pokemon games! How convenient.

Fishing has been a constant mechanic added into the Pokemon main series games, its introduction being from Generation 1 itself. Over the years, the fishing mechanic has seen quite some changes, but the core concept remains the same: fish for and catch various aquatic Pokemon.

To do this, you’ll need a Fishing Rod. In Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, like other games, there are three variants of the Fishing Rod (in ascending order of their usefulness): the Old Rod, the Good Rod, and the Super Rod.

If you want to learn where to get each Fishing Rod in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, then read on below!

How to Get Each Fishing Rod in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

The Old Rod will be the first Fishing Rod you can obtain, then the Good Rod, and then the Super Rod. Below, we will talk about the locations to find each Fishing Rod.

Old Rod

The Old Rod can be pretty easily gotten to the west of Jubilife City, in the route connector. A Fisherman there will hand you the Fishing Rod after some dialogue.

Good Rod

The Good Rod can be obtained by heading outside of Hearthome City to the east, where a Fisherman just at the beginning of Route 209 should hand it to you.

Super Rod

Unfortunately, the Super Rod can only be obtained in the post-game. This means that you have to first beat the Elite Four and Champion, and additionally, obtain the National Dex before you are eligible to get the Super Rod.

Once you’ve done all that, make your way to the Battle Resort and speak to the Fisherman by the Route 225 entrance to get your very own Super Rod.
