In order to get Buneary and evolve into Lopunny in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl or BDSP, you first have to know where the cute rabbit Pokemon spawns. Fortunately, you have many options at your disposal there. However, there’s the matter of evolving it into Lopunny, which is not as easy to figure out. That’s why we’ll be covering both of those points in this guide.
How to Get Buneary Pokemon BDSP
To get Buneary in Pokemon BDSP or Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl and evolve it into Lopunny later, you can look in several places. One of the easier options is to go into Eterna Forest, which is west of Eterna City. It has about a 20% chance of appearing pretty much everywhere in the forest, regardless of whether you are in the grass or just anywhere in general. Just walk around until a Buneary spawns. Alternatively, you can find this particular Pokemon in a number of rooms in the Grand Underground. We found several in Grassland Cave, but it can apparently pop up in Glacial Cavern, Whiteout Cave, Spacious Cave, and Riverbank Cave. If you know of any other locations, let us know in the comments below.
How to Evolve Buneary into Lopunny Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
To evolve Buneary into Lopunny in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl or BDSP, you just need to get to a high friendship level with it and then evolve it. There are no other requirements that we’re aware of, such as minimum level or time of day or anything like that. Just to be on the safe side, you should probably max out the friendship level. Check out our How to Check Friendship Level guide to see how to keep track of that stuff. Basically, what you can do is give it the Soothing Bell, walk with it, give it Vitamins and take it for massages in Veilstone City. As soon as you hit max friendship levels, feed the Buneary some Rare Candy to level it up, and it should evolve into Lopunny.
