Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl: Rare Candy Locations

Quick Links

As players explore the Sinnoh region in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl they can find plenty of items scattered throughout the roads ahead. While some items are more helpful than others, one of the luckiest finds players can encounter is a Rare Candy.

Rare Candies have been a staple in the Pokemon series since the first generation with them returning for Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. These sweets automatically raise Pokemon to their next level, helping players balance their team out and give their favorites a special boost.

Fitting with its name, Rare Candies are quite hard to find. They cannot be normally purchased in stores with players more likely to find them out on their journey. If players want to purchase them, they can be bought in the post game's Battle Tower for 20 BP each.
