There are numerous Pokémon that you can find by playing Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Brilliant Pearl. These Pokémon are elusive and tracking them can be difficult. Hippopotas is one of the most difficult Pokémon you will need to find on your travels. In this guide, we will detail how to find Hippopotas in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Brilliant Pearl.
You can find Hippopotas quite early in your adventure in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Brilliant Pearl. It is a Pokémon that you can find in the Grand Underground, which means that you will need the Explorer Kit. When you are ready, you can go to this location, but you must wait until you have obtained the Defog TM before looking for Hippopotas.
As long as you have the TM, Hippopotas should start appearing in the Grand Underground. You can find it in Big Bluff Caverns, in any cave with rocks or in caves with lava and fire. Players have reported seeing Hippopotas in these locations, but getting them can be a bit tricky. Hippopotas is a Ground-type Pokémon, so you can place Ground-type Statues inside your Secret Base to increase the chances of finding this Pokémon.
