Shiny Diamond and Shiny Pearl Pokémon: Where to Catch Elekid
Electivire is one of the larger Electric-type Pokémon in Shiny Diamond Pokémon and Shiny Pearl Pokémon, but players must first obtain Elekid, its first form, in order to get the Powerhouse, no pun intended. With that said, we’ll see where to find Elekid in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, how to get Elekid in Pokémon Shining Pearl, and how to evolve Elekid in both games.
Elekid locations in Shiny Diamond Pokémon
Unfortunately, just like Magby, Magmar, and Magmortar are Shining Pearl Pokémon only, Elekid, Electabuzz, and Electivir are only available on Pokémon Brilliant Diamond. However, that doesn’t rule out the possibility of getting the Pokémon in Shining Pearl, as we’ll explain how to do it later. Players with Shiny Diamonds can get Elekid by visiting the Grand Underground, including Whiteout Cave, Stargleam Cavern, Glacial Cavern, or Dazzling Cave. To locate the Pokémon in either location, simply go to either one and exit and enter until you find the Pokémon. Make sure to grab an Elekid holding an Energizer if you want to level your Elekid up to an Electivire.
Here’s how to catch the Pokémon in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond in a nutshell:
- Go to the Grand Souterrain.
- Go to Whiteout Cave, Stargleam Cavern, Glacial Cavern, or Dazzling Cave.
- Spot an Elekid, fight it and capture it.
How to get Elekid in Pokémon Shining Pearl
As promised, Shining Pearl Edition users can get Elekid by trading with Brilliant Diamond version players. In the game’s many Pokémon Centers, you can trade your Pokémon.
How to upgrade Elekid to Electabuzz
You can evolve an Elekid into an Electabuzz by leveling it up to level 30 after getting one. Make sure to evolve your Electabuzz into Electirizer once you’ve evolved them into Electabuzz in order to get one of the best Electric-type Pokémon available.
