This post will walk you through how to obtain Aerodactyl in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl: Unlocking the National Dex
First and foremost, you must get the national dex before you can obtain Aerodactyl. Because Aerodactyl cannot be caught in the wild, you must carefully follow the instructions outlined below in order to obtain Aerodactyl. When you first learn about how to obtain the national dex, it may appear to be a daunting task, as you must encounter every Pokemon in the Sinnoh area. It should be noted, however, that you only need to watch them and not catch them all. This is in addition to the fact that you don’t need both versions of the game to encounter all of the Pokemon.
Keep a close eye on your Pokedex as you make your way through encountering all of the Pokemon, and you’ll have met them all before you know it. When you’ve finished this mission, head to ‘Sandgem Town’ and speak with Professor Rowan inside his lab. Professor Oak will then give you the National Dex enhancement at the end of the chat. You’re now ready to acquire Aerodactyl.
In Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, how can you get Aerodactyl?
Now that you have the National Dex, you may start working towards getting Aerodactyl. This Pokemon can only be obtained at the Oreburgh Mining Museum by extracting/’restoring’ the ‘Old Amber’ fossil. To obtain the Old Amber, you must first travel to the Grand Underground, which you can learn how to reach by reading this page.
Now that you’ve reached the Grand Underground, begin exploring and digging up any fossils or treasures you come across, which may be identified as such if they sparkle and flash as golden VFX and are indicated with a diamond on the minimap. When you engage with the treasure location with your trainer, the digging minigame will begin, and you will be able to gather fossils this way.
Continue exploring the Grand Underground and interacting with any of the locations you come across until you find the Old Amber fossil. When you’ve located it, proceed to the Oreburgh Mining Museum. You’ll find a scientist at the museum’s main desk; chat with them and you’ll be able to restore the fossil. You will be granted Aerodactyl to add to your Pokemon collection when you have restored the Old Amber.
