Trainers can find Rare Candy in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl to help level up their partners.

Rare Candy works just like it does in every other main entry Pokemon game. It raises a creature's level by one. This can be useful for increasing stats, evolving a Pokemon, or reaching a level to learn a certain move.

These aren't items that players can buy in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Instead, they'll find them scattered across the Sinnoh region. Some will be in the overworld and others will only be found with the Dowsing Machine.

The Dowsing Machine is an item finder in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Players can use it to locate some hidden items in Sinnoh, along with a handful of Rare Candy.

They will obtain the Dowsing Machine in Mt. Coronet. Upon entering through the Bicycle Road entrance, players will be stopped by either Dawn or Lucas depending on their character selection. After a conversation, they'll give away the Dowsing Machine.

Here are all the locations where players can use the Dowsing Machine to track down a Rare Candy in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl:

  • Route 207
  • Route 210
  • Great Marsh
  • Route 212
  • Snowpoint City
  • Galactic Veilstone Building
  • Victory Road
  • Victory Road
