Where to Find Abra – Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl

Abra is a Psychic-type Pokemon from generation one. There are two ways to get Abra in the game and both are very easy to do. One involves trading a Pokemon for Abra. The other involves a good old-fashioned catch operation.

To catch one the traditional way, start in Jubilife city. Take the eastern road out of the city, so you end up on the beginning of Route 203. Directly above the Route 203 sign is a patch of grass. Run around in here for a while, and you are sure to encounter an Abra. You can do this early in the game, allowing you to take this Pokemon on your future travels.

One other way is to trade a Pokemon for an Abra. However, you do need a Machop for this. Go north out of Oreburgh City toward the foot of Mount Coronet. As you go up the first set of stairs, a large grass patch is in front of you. Walking around in here for a while should bring you an encounter with Machop.

Go back into the town and head to the house next to the Pokemart. Inside is a girl called Hilary, who is eager to trade a Machop for an Abra. You can simply swap the Machop you have caught for the desired Pokemon and take your Abra on your next adventure.
