5 Beginner Tips & Tricks for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl

Need a Light? Pick Chimchar

Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl Tips & Tricks

The original Diamond and Pearl games infamously had a severe lack of Fire Pokemon. There are very few native Fire Pokemon in the Sinnoh region and if you wanted to add one to your team, you were limited to mostly very poor options such as Ponyta. While this has somewhat been alleviated in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, it’s still slim pickings. For more tips and tricks, check out our Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl guide wiki.

There is, however, one very good native Fire Pokemon in Sinnoh and it’s Chimchar, one of the three starters you can pick from in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. If you do not have an emotional attachment to one of the other two starters, we highly recommend picking up Chimchar at the start of the game.

Not only does it give you so much-needed balance as a Fire Pokemon, but it also eventually becomes a Fighting-type as well and can learn all of the various elemental punch moves which are very helpful. It’s fast and powerful with both Physical and Special attacks and it should make your life as a beginner much easier.
