How to get Spiritomb in Pokémon Shining Diamond and Shining Pearl

In this guide of Pokémon Shining Diamond and Shining Pearl we will explain how to catch a Spiritomb.

Spiritomb is a Ghost / Dark type Pokémon introduced in the fourth generation of the Game Freak series and is one of the most difficult creatures to get. In fact, it does not normally appear in the wild in any area of ​​Sinnoh or the Great Dungeons, even after obtaining the National Pokédex, and to capture a specimen you will have to meet very specific requirements, which require a lot of patience. Incidentally, in the Nintendo Switch remakes the process for capturing a Spiritomb has changed slightly, which makes things complicated even for those who have played the original Diamond and Pearl on DS.

How to get Spiritomb

Spiritomb You can catch a Spiritomb after earning the second Pokémon Shining Diamond and Shining Pearl medal. However, given the requirements to be met to meet a specimen of the Pokémon, which we will explain shortly, we advise you to try your hand at this feat only after defeating the Elite Four to speed things up. Also, keep in mind that Spiritomb will always appear at Lv. 25, so avoid bringing Pokémon of a much higher level with you or equip yourself with a creature with the False Swipe move, which always leaves the opponent with at least 1 HP. Before starting the fight remember to stock up on Pokéballs and save the game, as if things go wrong you will have to repeat all the lengthy procedure detailed below.

First, you must have unlocked the Great Dungeons of Pokémon Shining Diamond and Shining Pearl. If you haven't already, head to Evisopolis, the city where you get the second medal, enter the house to the right of the Pokémon Center and talk to the old man inside, who will give you the Explorokit. This tool basically allows you to access the Great Dungeons in any open area. Depending on the area you excavate the entrance, you will find yourself in a different section of the Great Dungeons.

Additionally, you will need to obtain a Soulrock, an essential item for finding a Spiritomb. You have three options in this regard. The first (and fastest) is to reach Route 208 starting from Hearthome City. As soon as you enter the area, look for the Black Belt which is hidden by the trees to the south. Talking to him will give you a Rock Soul. Alternatively, go to Twinleaf and use the HM Surf to swim in the pond located south of the protagonist's house. You will find a Soulrock as a hidden object by interacting with the trees on the left side of the body of water. Finally, you can get an infinite number of these items even in the Great Dungeons, but it takes time and we advise against it.

Once you've met this requirement, head to Route 209 and look for the Well of Memory, a dilapidated well about halfway down the path and the only place where Spiritomb will appear. Interact with the well and enter the Rock Soul. Get ready, because now the longest and most boring part begins.

To make Spiritomb appear in the Memory Well you have to go to the Great Dungeons and talk to 32 unique NPCs (in total there are 35) and different, that is not it is worth interacting with the same character twice. Furthermore, unfortunately, the merchants present in the dungeon are excluded from the count and, unlike the original games, also the players you will meet online, which makes this operation particularly long.

Spiritomb will appear in the Memory Well on Route 209 Depending on the number of unique NPCs you have spoken to, a different phrase will appear when interacting with the Memory Well, which will be useful for understanding your progress in this little quest secret of Spiritomb. The sentences in question are:

0 to 7 NPC - "It must have been built many years ago." From 8 to 14 NPCs - "The Stones seem to have changed ..." From 15 to 21 NPCs - "Are the screams heard inside the well?" 22 to 28 NPCs - "Is the well shaking?" 29 to 31 NPCs - "There's some kind of presence ... Seems ready to emerge!" 32 or more NPCs - "Aaaaah!" (Spiritomb will appear)

Each NPC has one or more specific corridor points in the Great Dungeons where it is most likely to appear. For this reason, we initially advised you to try your hand at capturing a Spiritomb after completing the Pokémon League, since at that point you will be able to access all the various sections of the Great Dungeons and therefore more easily find the NPCs that are missing. . You can make your life easier with this map of the Great Dungeons that shows the most likely points for the spawn of the characters.

That said, it is not impossible to complete this feat even after having only obtained two medals by "forcing" the respawn of the characters. NPCs in the corridors of the Great Undergrounds, but inevitably requires more time and a lot of patience. Each time you enter and exit a Pokémon Refuge or Great Underground, the position of the characters changes, so you can take advantage of this to bring up the NPCs you have not yet spoken to. The best place to practice this method is the Cave of the Sun, which you can easily reach by entering the Great Dungeons from Route 207. Once in this area, you will find two sections of dungeon corridors, one on the left and one on the right. of the cave, which you can quickly go through to meet NPCs.

Keep in mind that there are multiple NPCs sharing the same 3D model, so you should talk to every character you meet even if you think you've interacted with them before. Once you've talked to 32 different unique NPCs, return to Route 209 and interact with the Memory Well and you can finally face and capture a Spiritomb. In case you want to get more Pokémon you will need to find another Soulrocket and talk to 32 NPCs again.
