In Pokémon Sparkling Diamond and Sparkling Pearl it is possible to unlock a very useful item to find certain pokémon and especially to find shiny! This object is the Poké Radar.
If you want to have Poké Radar, you will first need complete the Regional Pokédex having seen all the pokémon in the Sinnoh region.
How to get the Poké Radar and how does it work?
As you may have read previously, the only way toget the Poké Radar is of complete the regional pokédex in Pokémon DE and PS. Once done, you will need go see Prof. Mountain ash who will give it to you. The Poké Radar is a very useful item because it allows you to find rare pokemon, not found without it, like Metamorphic on Route 218 or Skelénox on Route 224.
If the players wish to have the Poké Radar, it is also because it allows you to find shiny pokemon much easier. So how does it work? Using this item in the middle of an area of grass, 4 herbs will start to move more than the others. As you walk through these herbs you will have more chances to come across a rare pokemon. Warning ! You can still meet a pokemon while heading towards these herbs if you are not using regrowth.
Once you defeat or capture the pokemon, you will be able to relaunch your Poké Radar and get to a new grass. Normally you will have to meet the same pokemon and at the end of the 40th meeting you will have 1 in 99 to stumble upon a shiny pokemon.
