To get to Sandgem Town in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, play through the game’s main mission until you get to the point where your mom gives you the Running Shoes and explains how they work. All that is pretty simple. Once that’s done, step outside of your house and walk the path leading up. Soon enough, you’ll leave the edges of Twinleaf Town and find yourself on Route 201. Walk past the rows of pine trees, and you’ll spot a fork in the road with a sign that says “201.”

Then, go right and you’ll find yourself back on Route 201. Keep going right and boom, you’re in Sandgem Town.

The first time you get there, Lucas will meet you at the entrance to the town and take you to meet Rowan. He will let you name your starter Pokemon and generally explain how the game works. If you’ve played any Pokemon game before, you’ll be familiar with all of that stuff.
