Pokémon Hideaways in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl explained

Pokémon Hideaways are a new addition to the Grand Underground in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. In these caves you can battle and catch Pokémon which might not appear on the surface world of Sinnoh until you’ve unlocked the National Pokédex.

These Hideaways appear as squares on the Grand Underground map and each one contains a specific biome which determines the Pokémon you’ll find there. Fire-type Pokémon, for example, are more likely to appear in the Volcanic Cave and Sandsear Cave.

A wider variety of Pokémon will also appear in each Pokémon Hideaway as you fulfill specific requirements in the game. These requirements are:

  • Finding TM96 Strength at the Lost Tower
  • Finding TM97 Defog at the Great Marsh
  • Winning the Icicle Badge at Snowpoint City
  • Finding TM99 Waterfall at Sunnyshore City
  • Unlocking the National Pokédex

You can increase the chance of specific Pokémon types appearing by placing statues in your Secret Base.

When you enter a Pokémon Hideaway, there’s also a chance that a rare Pokémon, which doesn’t appear in the Sinnoh Pokédex, will appear. Since this isn’t guaranteed, you can try leaving the Pokémon Hideaway and the Grand Underground itself multiple times to force this spawn. Some of these Pokémon will become easier to find once you’ve unlocked the National Pokédex.

Houndoom is one of the Pokémon you can find from the first time you enter the Grand Underground, but isn’t present in the Sinnoh Pokédex.

The Pokémon you catch in the Grand Underground might also know one of its egg moves, so, if you’re after a specific Pokémon, it’s a good idea to catch multiple to see if you have the moveset you desire.

Destiny Bond is one of Houndoom’s egg moves.

The levels of the Pokémon you encounter will match your progression through the Gyms and cap after you’ve defeated the Elite Four.

  • Levels 16 to 20 – One Gym Badge
