Roark, a rock-type trainer, is the first gym leader you face in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. To easily defeat them, make sure your team includes some Pokémon of the fighting, grass, ground, steel, or water types. As you face more and more trainers in the game, keep these strengths and weaknesses in mind.
You should keep these type advantages in mind when deciding between Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl as your beginning. In light of the fact that your first gym leader is a rock-type, you might choose to start out with a water-type like Piplup.
However, a fire-type Pokémon like Chimchar could be argued to be a better starting Pokémon. This starter, despite the fact that fire-types are vulnerable to rock-types, learns fighting-type moves capable of defeating the first gym leader, Roark. There are not many fire-types in the games therefore it may be worthwhile to grind early on to retain a better fire-type in your party.
