How to get more Digger Drills in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

You first need to get the Explorer’s Kit, then head into the underground. Your goal is to find Blue Spheres and other treasures. You need to head to Eterna City and speak to the Underground Man. To find treasures for the Underground Man, look to your radar for “any spots of yellow light,” as the man says.

The Digger Drills are used to setup bases in the Grand Underground, and these are very important. Here’s how to get more. The basic idea is that you need to explore the Grand Underground itself and find the Hikers lurking around. ou can find them while running between the various biomes of the zone. You will need to speak to them and choose the option to Get Goods.

Each Hiker will sell different items. You will need trade Blue Spheres—and sometimes other treasures—to get your hands on their goods. The Digger Drills can be bought for 8 Spheres. So get out there and get mining.

And this is by no means the only item you need to find. The Razor Claw can be pretty useful, as can the Up-Grade for Porygon fans. There are also a bunch of stat upgrade items to find. If you’re planning on getting into the competitions of who has the prettiest Pokémon, you will need to learn about Poffins too.
