Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl: Where to Find Croagunk

Croagunk is a dual Poison and Fighting-type Pokemon, native to the Gen 4 Sinnoh region. It evolves into Toxicroak at level 37, and both Croagunk and Toxicroak have a shiny variant in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Croagunk isn't the rarest Pokedex entry to come by, but it can only be found in two specific locations, and is easy to miss. Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl players can use this guide to help them find and catch Croagunk.

Where to Find Croagunk in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

There are two locations players can find Croagunk in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl:

Finding Croagunk at The Safari Zone

Croagunk can be caught at the Safari Zone in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl during the day or night. Although running into a wild spawn is possible, it is best to use the binoculars for 100 PokeDollars on the first level of the building to check each area and see if a Croagunk has spawned that day.

Croagunk can still be located and caught even if one does not appear in the binoculars, it will just take a lot longer to locate as it could be in any of the six zones, or none at all. Once encountered, it's recommended to just throw a Safari Ball to try and catch Croagunk. Using Bait or Mud is a risky action that results in a higher flee/failed capture rate.

Once the National Dex is obtained in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, more Pokemon will be added to the Safari Zone's list of spawns. To make catching Croagunk easier, try to do it before the National Dex is acquired.

Finding Croagunk at The Grand Underground

Croagunk is available to find in The Grand Underground in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl as soon as players gain access to the area. Croagunk can be found in the following locations of the Grand Underground:

Unlike other locations in the game, The Grand Underground features free-roaming Pokemon that can be spotted by players before encountering them. This makes locating a Croagunk even easier. However, shinies do not appear to players on the overworld. An encounter will have to be started to see if it is a shiny variant.

To help catch a shiny Croagunk, or any other Pokemon, it's highly recommended to get the Poke Radar in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. This item greatly enhances the chances of encountering a shiny. The Chain Counter App will also help players keep track when shiny-hunting.

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are out now for Nintendo Switch.
