There are many things that set Pokemon – even those of the same type – apart from one another. Besides things such as IVs and Levels, another important thing that make a Pokemon powerful in battle are its abilities. These include Hidden Abilities as well. An item that helps Pokemon get their Hidden Abilities is the aptly-named Ability Patch. Since these HI can be very potent, it’s no surprise that this is one of the most sought-after items in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl. To help you get it, our Ability Patch Pokemon BDSP guide will tell you exactly what you need to do to obtain it.
How to Get Ability Patch Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
To get the Ability Patch, you will first need to defeat the Elite Four and become the Champion. After that, you will be able to board the boat in Snowpoint City and go to Survival Island. This is a great end-game location, since it allows you to get many excellent items and abilities, such as the Judge Function which lets you see the IV of your Pokemon. To get the Ability Patch, you will need to earn BP by battling in the Battle Tower. Once you have 200 BP, you can then exchange these for the Ability Patch.
How to Use Ability Patch Pokemon BDSP
Once you have purchased this item, go into your Bag tab and select it. Then, select which Pokemon you want to use it on. It will then change its Hidden Ability with the old ability. Note that you need to take care when doing this, since this item doesn’t let you change the abilities back. So, only do this if you are really sure. It’s a great option to choose if you want to breed your Pokemon and you want to increase the odds of the offspring having the Hidden Ability as well.
