In Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, you will be able to encounter and catch many different Pokemon species. Of course, some of these are much more elusive than others. Take, for example, the Carnivine. This Grass-type Pokemon only appears in one single solitary location. Needless to say, that makes it quite difficult to find and catch. Not to worry, since our Carnivine Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl guide will show you the exact place where you will need to go if you want to catch it.
Where to Find Carnivine Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
Unlike most other Pokemon which can be found in several locations, the elusive Carnivine is exclusive to just one place in the entire game. That location is called the Great Marsh. It can be found inside Pastoria City. However, that’s not all there is to catching Carnivine. Another thing that you have to do before you can encounter it is to use the binoculars which are upstairs in the Great Marsh entrance building. So, go there and look through the binoculars.
If you are lucky, you will be able to spot Carnivine through these. If you do not see it right away, do not be discouraged, since, like most other things in Pokemon BDSP, this all depends on chance. You have a 10% chance of seeing a Carnivine, so repeat this process until you have spotted it.
After you have spotted a Carnivine, make a note of where you have seen it. Then, enter the Great Marsh itself. Look around until you have come across the location where you have seen the Carnivine is at. Engage it and with some skill – and luck – you will be able to catch it. And that’s all there is to getting the Carnivine in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
