How to Catch & Evolve Mantyke into Mantine in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl

One of the more unusual evolutions in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl is the one that sees Mantyke evolve into Mantine. That’s because it isn’t a case of simply giving it an evolution stone or trading it with a friend, but instead requires you to have a completely different Pokemon in your party altogether. In this guide, we’ll explain how to catch Mantyke, and then evolve it into Mantine in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl.

Catching Mantyke

Mantyke can be caught in both Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, but will only ever be seen surfing on water, rather than being a Pokemon you catch by fishing with a rod.

Mantyke can be found in the following locations:

  • Route 223
  • Sunyshore City

It can also be caught in the following locations in the Grand Underground once players have obtained TM99 Waterfall:

  • Fountainspring Cave
  • Riverbank Cave
  • Spacious Cave
  • Still-Water Cavern

Evolving Mantyke into Mantine in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl

To evolve Mantyke into Mantine you must level it up while you have a Remoraid in your party.

Fortunately, both Mantyke and Remoraid can be caught in a few of the same locations (Route 223 and Sunyshore City) meaning you won’t have to fly around the map to catch them both.

Catching Remoraid

Remoraid is not a version exclusive Pokemon and so can be caught with a Good Rod in both Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl in the following locations:

  • Pastoria City
  • Pokemon League
  • Route 213
  • Route 222
  • Route 223
  • Route 224
  • Route 230
  • Sunyshore City
  • Victory Road

Make sure to pack plenty of Great and Ultra Balls to make catching Remoraid even easier.
