If you’re one of the trainers struggling to figure out how to get Mantyke and evolve into Mantine in Pokemon BDSP or Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, you’ve come to the right place. First off, don’t worry, you’re not the only one having trouble with this. While getting a Mantyke is not too difficult, evolving it into a Mantine is a whole different can of works. So, with all of that said, let’s get into the meat of the matter.
How to Get Mantyke Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
To get Mantyke in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl or BDSP, there are several avenues for you to pursue. The easiest way is to go to route 223, which is in the east of the map and connects Sunyshore City and the Pokemon League. All you need to do is use your Surf hidden move and just kinda go around in circles until a Mantyke spawns, after which you need to catch it as you would any other Pokemon. That said, you can also find Mantyke in several rooms in the Grand Underground; specifically, they spawn around the waterfalls in Fountainspring Cave, Still-Water Cavern, Spacious Cave and Riverbank Cave.
How to Evolve Mantyke into Mantine Pokemon BDSP
To evolve Mantyke into Mantine in Pokemon BDSP or Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, you need to level up the Mantyke while having a Remoraid in your party. You can fish for Remoraid in the water along Route 213 or 223 (and a few others, but this should suffice). Make sure to use at least a Good Rod to give yourself the best possible odds. Once you do catch a Remoraid, place it into your party, then level up the Mantyke. You should now have a Mantine on your team. You can now remove the Remoraid from the party, because why would you keep it there?
