Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl: How to Evolve Murkrow into Honchkrow
Murkrow was a Pokémon that debuted in the Pokémon games’ second generation. Due to its low stats, it was one of the least dangerous Pokémon in the game. Then came Generation IV, and Honchkrow was born. It’s not as simple as just leveling up your Murkrow to get the evolution. In Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, here’s how you evolve Murkrow into Honchkrow.
How to evolve Murkrow to Honchkrow in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
You’ll need a Dusk Stone to accomplish this. It’s an evolutionary stone similar to the ones used to evolve Eevee, yet it can’t evolve Eevee. This one is linked to a much smaller number of Pokémon. Except for the speed stat, Honchkrow’s stats are significantly superior to Murkrow’s.
Ideally, you’ll want to wait until your Murkrow reaches a level of 45 to 55 so that it can learn certain moves. It’ll be lower-leveled if you catch a Murkrow in Eterna Forest. If you decide to develop it into an Honchkrow after it’s achieved a few levels, it won’t learn many new moves until you use a TM or use the move relearner to restore a few moves.
You can utilize the Dusk Stone to evolve Misdreavus into Mismagius if you have Pokémon Shining Pearl instead. Murkrow is only available through Brilliant Diamond, whereas Misdreavus is only available through Shining Pearl. The Dusk Stone is used by both of these Pokémon, and they level up in the same way.
However, be cautious when using your Stone. As far as we know, one save file can only contain roughly three Dusk Stones. It’s best to use it while your Murkrow has positive qualities so you can maximize its potential later.
Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are now available on Nintendo Switch exclusively.
