Pokemon: How To Catch Gible (Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl)

The Gible-line is a Dragon/Ground-type Pokémon, making them resistant to most types but vulnerable to Fairy and Dragon-type creatures. Because of its dual-typing, Gible is also vulnerable to Ice-type Pokémon, therefore trainers should keep an eye out for Ice-type Pokémon. Gible will take a few Gym Badges to catch, so players should expect it to be available only when they’ve progressed far enough in BDSP.

Many players will be eager to get their hands on a Gible in Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl. Simply put, there’s a reason why Cynthia, the region’s Champion, battles with a Garchomp as one of her main Pokémon. Gible may appear lackluster and little at first in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, but it will quickly evolve into one of the best Pokémon in the game.

How To Catch Gible

  • Pokémon has a basic stat total of 600 and a three-stage evolution is known as pseudo-legendary Pokémon. The majority of these Pokémon are of the Dragon-type, with a few outliers.
  • The pseudo-legendary Garchomp may be obtained in Pokémon BDSP. Some Pokémon enthusiasts will recognize Garchomp as Cynthia’s champion in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Players must, however, capture Gible in order to obtain this Pokémon.

Players will need a few items before they can catch Gible:

HM04 Strength
HM03 Surf Mine Badge

The player will receive HM03 for assisting Cynthia’s grandmother in Celeste City.

To obtain HM04 Strength, travel south of Solaceon village on Route 209 to The Lost Tower. There will be two elders at the very top who will offer you a Cleanse Tag and HM04 Strength. This move, however, cannot be used in battle unless the player has obtained the Relic Badge.

  • After receiving the Relic Badge from Fantina in Hearthome City, the game will instruct trainers to travel to Canalave City’s next gym. To get to Canalave, players must travel Route 218 with HM03 Surf.
  • They’ll be able to take on the gym challenge and face Byron after they get in Canalave. His Pokemon’s levels range from 35 to 39, and he is a Steel-type expert. Bring Fire or Fighting-type items and avoid Ice or Rock-type items.

Purchase Quick Balls, Dark Balls, and Ultra Balls at a select Pokemarts. Finally, having a Pokemon on hand that can cause non-damaging status illnesses is a good idea.

Wayward Cave

  • Now that you’ve finished all of this, it’s time to head to Gible’s home, Wayward Cave. Wayward Cave has two entrances, one on Route 206 and the other beneath the Cycling Road.

  • Go left instead of right. Underneath Cycling Road, the concealed entrance is hidden behind the rocky walls. Use Strength on a Pokémon to move the boulders and start looking for Gible.
  • Gible is a rare Pokémon with a high catch rate. Furthermore, Gible is likely to be weaker than the other Pokémon in the group, so bring a Pokémon with a level of 19-20.
  • To make catching it easier, use Dark or Quick Balls. If you don’t have them, weaken them and inflict status illnesses before hurling an Ultra Ball. Trainers can acquire a Gible in a Trade instead of going to all of this trouble.
