How to Farm Bottle Caps in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
You’ve probably never heard of Bottle Caps if you haven’t played a Pokemon game since the 3DS Sun and Moon series. They’re a crucial item for lowering the entry hurdle to the competitive environment in the mainline Pokemon games. When presented to the Hyper Trainer, these items allow players to maximize their Pokemon’s individual values (IVs), making them substantially more effective in combat. In Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, here’s how to get these incredibly precious Bottle Caps.
Before you can even consider attaining maximum IV Pokemon, you must first defeat the Elite Four. After that, you must get entrance to the Battle Area, which you may do by speaking with the sailor in Snowpoint City.
Then you’ll have to go to the Battle Tower and gain Battle Points (BP). They cost 25 BP for each unit, thus getting a few of these will be a challenge. The Battle Tower is a true endgame activity that becomes increasingly harder as your winning streak grows.
The most natural approach to get BP is to keep fighting until you lose. In your endeavors, you’ll collect a significant number of points, but you’ll experience frustrating resets in your point gains. Instead, you could actually put together a decent enough club to go on a 21-game winning streak.
If you defeat Palmer’s initial set of Pokemon, you will receive 26 BP per 21-win streak. You will receive 3 BP each set for the first two sets of seven consecutive battles. If you beat Palmer in the third set, you’ll get 20 points. If you rinse and repeat the process, it will take roughly an hour, assuming you forfeit the 22nd match and start again at 1.
However, if you want to go the extra mile—the endgame approach—you might strive to achieve a 100-win streak in singles or doubles. Battles between Master Classes become available as a result of this. You can earn Bottle Caps, enhanced Battle Point quantities, and even Gold Bottle Caps by beating your seven consecutive battles and maintaining streaks in Master Class.
The concessions can utilize gold bottle caps with the Hyper Trainer. If you raise a Pokemon to level 100, they will have all of their IVs maxed out. Of course, if you’re just getting started with getting the best numbers out of your Pokemon, you should stick to the non-Master Class way.
