How to level up fast in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

Make your Pokémon strong!

Pokémon is a creature collector RPG that features hundreds of Pokémon to raise and train. During your adventure in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, you will need to level up your team of six if you have any hope of claiming the title of champion. As such, you might be wondering what the fastest way to level up your Pokémon is.

To level up your Pokémon fast, there are a couple of different options. The bottom line, though, is that you will need to grind. Two of the best methods are grinding while having an NPC partner and using the Vs. Seeker to rematch higher leveled trainers.

When you have an NPC partner, all encounters will be double battles, but all the experience will go to your team. In addition to this, your partner will heal your Pokémon after each battle, essentially meaning you can grind experience points without fear of your Pokémon fainting and having to run back to a Pokémon Center.

The second option is to use the Vs. Seeker and rebattle higher-level trainers. As you get more experience points from trainer battles, this is more beneficial than battling wild Pokémon. You should also be battling wild Pokémon in higher leveled areas.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl feature the Exp. Boost means your whole team gains experience regardless of whether they participated in the battle. This allows you to train lower-level Pokémon in higher-level areas and quickly level them up.
