Few things are as difficult as catching Abra in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. The main problem with this creature is that in the wild it only knows the movement ” Teleportation “, which added to its high speed makes it a challenge for trainers.
In this article we will show you two ways to capture Abra in the early phase of the game and thus have all the potential that this psychic pokémon has to offer you.
Catch Abra in the wild
Of course, the most natural way to find and capture Abra is by walking through tall grass. In Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, it will appear on Route 203, with a 5% to 15% chance that your random encounters will match you with Abra.
We already mentioned that its movement and speed are big stumbling blocks in this mission. This is why it is convenient to have a high-speed Pokémon that knows some movement to prevent Abra from escaping. The evil eye or sleeping pill are usually the most appropriate options.
Anyway, throwing a pokeball without applying any status effect will have a 26.1% chance of capturing this pokémon.
Trade Abra with an NPC
The good news for those who want to have Abra on their team is that in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl we can also exchange it to one of the non-playable characters in the games.
You just have to go to Pyrite City and from there head north, to look for random clashes on Route 207. Try to capture a Machop and return to the city.
Here you must go to the Pokémon Store and talk to the little girl there. She will offer you to exchange her Abra for your Machop, which is sure to save you a few headaches.
We hope this information has been helpful to you. Don’t forget that to evolve your Abra in Alakazam, you will have to trade Kadabra with another player.
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl is available for Nintendo Switch starting November 19, 2021.
