In Pokémon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl, Meditite is a non-exclusive Pokémon you can evolve. Meaning, you can capture them no matter which side of the game you play. We’ll give you some tips on how to evolve them as well as where you can find them.
Evolve Meditite in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl
Meditite is a Fighting/Psychic-type Pokémon and among the many you can track down before getting the national dex. All you have to do to ensure they will evolve in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl is to raise their level. Meditite will evolve into Medicham once it reaches Level 37.
You can level up your Pokémon quick through the following means:
- Lucky Egg
- Never Skip Battles
- Grind with Riley
- Vs. Seeker Key Item
Have your Meditite hold the Lucky Egg so they will increase the amount of EXP they gain. Also, you want to make sure you’re not skipping battles so you can gain as much as possible. As for Riley, you battle with him at your side once you travel to Iron Island halfway through the game. You can grind with him, and every match you do will be Double matches for larger EXP gains.
Additionally, you can get the Vs. Seeker Key Item that allows you to rematch trainers. This won’t work on trainers that are in caves or buildings, but all other trainers are fair game. Alongside that, you can always rematch the Elite Four and the Champion if you wish. They will have even stronger Pokémon by then, so they’ll be tougher to beat. At the same time, they’ll yield higher EXP payouts.
