Magnezone is one of the few dual Electric-type Pokémon that players can get in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl, and it also happens to be one of the most easily obtainable characters that players can add to their party. Magnezone was one of the many Pokémon introduced in the original Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl that evolved from Pokémon introduced in a previous generation. Its pre-evolved forms, Magnemite and Magneton, have been part of the series ever since Pokémon Red and Green were released, giving it a nostalgic feel without being part of the original 151 Pokémon.
Magnezone first entered the Pokemon world in Pokemon Diamond/Pokemon Pearl. It is the final evolution in the Magnemite-line. Before the Galar region, Magnezone could not be evolved with Thunder Stones. Its original evolution method, which involved leveling it up in an area with a special magnetic field, makes its return in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
Where to find Magnemite in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
Magnezone is an Electric/Steel special attack powerhouse (and also a pretty cool Pokémon design) that made its debut in Gen IV. The first step to getting one in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl is to get yourself a Magnemite, which can be found earliest in various areas of the Grand Underground as a rare spawn.
How To Get Magnezone in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
To get a Magnezone in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, players will first need to get the Explorer Kit in Eterna City. Afterward, they can use the Explorer Kit at any time to reach the Grand Underground. Next, players should defeat Gardenia and earn the Eterna City Gym Badge because this will increase the level of Pokémon available in the Grand Underground. While players won't be able to find Magnezone, they can find a Magnemite close to level 30, at which point it begins evolving into Magneton. Magnemite can be found in the Spacious, Whiteout, Glacial, and Icy caves, though the latter three aren't available until players get close to the Snowpoint City Gym in Pokémon BDSP.
Once Magnemite has been caught, the next step is evolving it into Magneton. It will evolve once it reaches level 30, so boost its friendship to get bonus experience or equip it with a Lucky Egg.
Once you’ve evolved your Magnemite into Magneton at level 30, make your way to Mt. Coronet (the earliest entrance being between Routes 207 and 208) and gain one more level. The special magnetic field of the area will evolve it into Magnezone!
