Like Zubat, Geodude is one of the staples “fodder ‘Mon” from Generation I (Pokemon Red, Green, Blue). Still, despite being a very common Rock/Ground-Type Pokemon, Geodude is also a somewhat popular choice for a party member in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. You can easily encounter Geodude at Route 206, 207, 210, 215, 210, Oreburgh Mine, Wayward Cave, Iron Island, Valor Lakefront, and Stark Mountain. Meanwhile, in the Pokemon Hideaway area, you can find it at Spacious Cave, Rocky Cave, Big Bluff Cavern, Volcanic Cave, and Typhlo Cavern. But how can you evolve Geodude into Graveler in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl?
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl: Geodude Evolution
To evolve Geodude into Graveler in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, all you need to do is to level it up to level 25. You can also catch Graveler all over Victory Road, Snowpoint Temple, Route 216, Mount Coronet, and Stark Mountain, as well as the same Pokemon Hideaway areas as Geodude after you unlocked Defog. However, you’ll need to trade the Graveler with someone else if you want to acquire a Golem. Read on below for more details about Graveler.
