Evolutions are a big part of the game in the Pokémon franchise. They’re useful for combat, but also can be just kind of cool to look at. There are plenty of Trainers out there that want to capture all 493 Pokémon in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and that’s what our guides are designed to do.
There’s also a bunch of other methods for getting Pokémon into the dex. One of the more common methods in older Gens is Trade evolutions. This is one of the methods Game Freak uses to entice buyers to grab both versions of effectively the same game. By combining this trading system with version exclusives, a lot of players do buy both in each generation.
Alakazam is one of the few Pokémon that can only be obtained through a trade evolution in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. This means you need to trade Kadabra to another trainer to evolve Kadabra into Alakazam. You will need to find someone you can trust to do this with.
Evolution items are a big part of the game now, in this modern era of Pokémon. There are tons of evolution stones and other items you need to hunt for, like the Reaper Cloth. One of the items you need to find to get the 400+ Dex filled is the Protector. This evolution item is used for a specific evolution, Rhyperior. There are both stat-boosting and evolution items you might want. You could also be hunting for the Electrizer, which is useful for getting Electabuzz.
