HOW TO HAVE A PERFECT POKÉMON IN POKÉMON SHINY DIAMOND

HOW TO HAVE A PERFECT POKÉMON IN POKÉMON SHINY DIAMOND

After finishing the history of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shiny Pearl (and any other similar title in the Pokémon saga) almost always (apart from completing the Pokédex ) our goal will be to get our favorite Pokémon as perfect as possible or build a powerful team. to fight against our friends or competitively.

In case that’s your goal, here’s everything you need to know to build your Perfect Pokémon .

IV’S

IVs in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Glistening Pearl

In Spanish they are known as Individual Values ​​(Individual Values ​​in English, hence their name), each Pokémon defines its Attack, Special Attack, Defense, Special Defense, Speed ​​and PS by one of these values.

In order to see the IVs of our Pokémon, we will need to reach the Battle Tower (for this you must first overcome the Pokémon League and spot all the Sinnoh Pokémon to obtain the National Pokédex) and once we are inside it we have to look for an NPC with the appearance of a scientist, who will be the one who unlocks the Judge Function for us .

Once we get it, we just have to go to the Pokémon Boxes and pressing the + or – button will give us the following phrases that define the IVs of our Pokémon:

  • He limps a bit : 0 points
  • Not bad : from 1 to 10 points
  • Remarkable : from 11 to 20 points
  • Great : from 21 to 29 points
  • Spectacular : 30 points

Obviously, we will almost always seek that our Pokémon have all the perfect statistics, except in very specific cases such as Snorlax in a Rare Space team , in which we will seek that the Speed ​​is as low as possible.

HOW TO HAVE THE PERFECT IVS

Catching a Wild Pokémon and having all the perfect IVs is really unrealistic, so we will mainly use two methods: Breeding and caps.

BREED POKÉMON WITH DESTINY BOW

The Fate Bond is an item that makes an egg inherit 5 IVs from its “parents”, this item is always closely tied to Ditto.

The easiest way to breed Pokemon is to obtain a perfect Ditto through breeding and equip this item to it. Once this is done, we just have to get eggs from the Pokémon we want and replace the one we are using to breed with the one from the egg when it has better IVs than its parent.

It is a somewhat tedious process, but this way we will make sure to get the Pokémon with the perfect 6 IVs.

SILVER AND GOLD BADGES

Let’s imagine that we have our Pokémon with everything perfect but an IV fails or on the other hand that a Shiny Pokémon with some terrible IVs has come out; Well, we can remedy this with the plates:

  • Silver Plates : It will improve an IV of our choice of a Pokémon to the maximum (they are obtained by winning battles in the Battle Tower or in exchange for 25 PB).
  • Golden Badges : It will improve all the IVs of a Pokémon to the maximum (they can only be obtained in battles in the Battle Tower and raising the rank in it, they are very difficult to obtain).

In order to use these plates, our Pokémon will have to reach Level 100 ; Once we have done this and obtained the caps, we will have to look for an NPC from the Battle Tower to subject our Pokémon to Extreme Training.

EV’S

EVs on Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Glistening Pearl

They are called Points of Effort (Effort Values ​​in English) and indicate the effort made by the Pokémon when it comes to boosting one of its main statistics (Attack, Speed, Special Defense, etc).

The maximum of Effort Points for each stat is 252 and each Pokémon can obtain a maximum of 510 Effort Points , therefore, we must choose very wisely what to invest them in if we are training our Pokémon competitively.

The ways to develop the EVs of our team in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Shiny Pearl are the following:

VITAMINS

Using vitamins we can enhance the parameter that we want in an amount of 10 Effort Points per bottle; we can obtain them in the department stores of Ciudad Rocavelo (at 9,800 pokéquartos per unit) or in the Battle Tower by exchanging the points obtained in it (1 PB each unit, but I do not recommend it because there are more necessary things to spend the points on).

That said, these are the vitamins that we can acquire and the parameters that increase each of them:

  • Calcium : Boosts a Pokemon’s base Special Attack.
  • Fuel : Boosts a Pokémon’s base Speed.
  • Iron : Boosts a Pokémon’s base Defense
  • More HP : Boosts the base HP of a Pokémon.
  • Protein : Boosts a Pokemon’s Base Attack.
  • Zinc : Boosts a Pokemon’s base Special Defense.

BATTLES WITH CERTAIN POKÉMON

Another way to increase EVs is by battling Pokemon; by defeating a specific Pokémon we will obtain EVs, but the problem is that each one gives us a certain value.

For example, if we fight with a Misdreavus we will obtain a point of Special Defense, a Gastrodon will give us two points to the PS and a Staraptor will grant three points to the Attack of our Pokémon.

And what does this mean? Well, if the Pokémon you’re breeding you’ve used to fight anything, they’re going to raise its EVs randomly and you’ve already screwed it up. But don’t worry, it’s also possible to remove the Effort Points gained by a Pokemon by giving it berries.

DELETE EVS

Before we have said that vitamins gave us 10 EVs to a parameter of our Pokémon; on the other hand, the following berries remove 10 EVs from a specific parameter:

  • Algama Berry : Lowers Attack, but increases friendship.
  • Berry Berry : Lowers HP, but increases friendship.
  • Berry Ispero : Lowers Defense, but increases Friendship.
  • Berry Meluce : Lowers Special Attack, but increases friendship.
  • Berry Tamate : Lowers Speed, but increases friendship.
  • Uvav Berry : Lowers Special Defense, but increases Friendship.

ABILITIES AND HIDDEN ABILITIES

Abilities are characteristics of a Pokémon that either favor it in or out of combat; a Pokémon can have a single Ability, multiple Abilities, or even a Hidden Ability.

When considering a strategy with a Pokémon, it is very important to look at its Abilities and choose the one that favors it the most or that can be used with an Object or a specific Movement.

For example, in the case of Gliscor , its Abilities are «Strong Cut» and «Sand Veil» which are not great, but its Hidden Ability is «Antidote» (if a Pokémon is poisoned and has this Ability, it will heal 1/ 8 life at the end of each turn) which comes in handy with the Toxiesphere and will make Gliscor very hard to crack.

NATURE

Nature is an attribute that reflects the personality of each Pokémon and normally increases one attribute and decreases another, therefore it is a very crucial aspect for competition.

For example, Garchomp is usually taken with Happy Nature to improve his Speed ​​and reduce Special Attack, since we won’t use it for anything.

So the thing is to look for a Nature that lowers that stat that is most useless and that increases the one that gives the Pokémon in question the most performance. Here is the list of all Natures found in the game:

  • Active Nature : + Speed ​​and – Defense.
  • Gentle Nature : +Special Attack and lowers Defense.
  • Agitated Nature : + Defense and – Special Attack.
  • Cheerful Nature : + Speed ​​and – Special Attack.
  • Crazy Nature : + Special Attack and – Special Defense.
  • Kind Nature : + Special Defense and – Defense.
  • Bold Nature : + Attack and – Speed.
  • Cautious Nature : + Special Defense and – Special Attack.
  • Steadfast Nature : + Attack and – Special Attack.
  • Lazy Nature : + Defense and – Special Defense.
  • Rude Nature : + Special Defense and – Speed.
  • Sullen Nature : + Attack and – Defense.
  • Naive Nature : + Speed ​​and – Special Defense.
  • Meek Nature : + Special Attack and – Speed.
  • Fearful Nature : + Speed ​​and – Attack.
  • Modest Nature : + Special Attack and – Attack.
  • Bold Nature : + Defense and – Attack.
  • Rogue Nature : + Attack and – Special Defense.
  • Placid Nature : + Defense and – Speed.
  • Serious Nature : Increases the Pokémon’s Attack, Defense, Speed, Special Defense, and Special Attack evenly.
  • Serene Nature : + Special Defense and – Attack.

One of the best ways to get the Nature in the breeding of a Pokémon is to equip a Pokémon with an Eternal Stone , in this way we have a 50% chance that the baby will be born with the Nature of the Pokémon that has the object equipped .
