With the release of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, Poke-fans are returning to the Sinnoh region once more to become the very best and catch ‘em all. If you’re looking to fill out your Pokedex, you’ll need to find, catch and evolve Shellos into Gastrodon in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and this guide will explain exactly what you need to know about doing just that.
Finding & Catching Shellos
Shellos is not a version-exclusive Pokemon and as such can be caught in both Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. It can be found and caught in the follow locations:
- Fuego Ironworks
- Route 205
- Route 213
- Route 218
- Route 221
- Route 224
- Valley Windworks
Evolving Shellos into Gastrodon in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
To evolve Shellos, simply level it up to level 30.
Once this happens, a small animation will play out and Shellos will evolve into Gastrodon.
The good news here is that evolving Shellos doesn’t require any item being held or given to the Pokemon. It doesn’t needed to be traded with another player, either, or to hit a certain level of friendship.
This is as basic an evolution as they come. As long as you level the Pokemon up by keeping it in your party while you’re battling trainers and wild Pokemon, it’ll evolve eventually.
Remember, you can always use a Rare Candy that you find around the region of Sinnoh to immediately level your Pokemon up by one, should you want to speed things up a bit.
That’s everything you need to know on how to evolve Shellos into Gastrodon in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl. For more tips, tricks and guides, be sure to check out our wiki or see more of our coverage on the game below.
