Pokemon BDSP Getting Defog from Great Marsh

Upon entering the Great Marsh, you'll find an Ace Trainer to your right. Talk to the trainer to get the TM Defog .

This move is very important in order for you to progress through the game so don't forget to get this TM!

Great Marsh Guide and Mechanics

How to enter the great marsh.

You'll find a gate to the Great Marsh at the northern area of Pastoria City . You need to pay a ₽500 fee before you can enter the Great Marsh. Talk to the receptionist and pay the fee to receive 30 Safari Balls , which you can use to capture Pokemon inside the Great Marsh Safari Zone.

The session will end if you use up all 30 Safari Balls or take more than 500 steps.

Some Pokemon in the Great Marsh Change Daily

Six special Pokemon will appear everyday, one for each area of the Great Marsh. Take note that you may have the same special Pokemon for different areas . These six Pokemon change daily and some are exclusive to the Great Marsh.

To view the Daily Pokemon found in the Great Marsh, you can look through the binoculars on the second floor of the lobby. It will only show a random Pokemon from 5 of the areas in the Great Marsh, so you may need to look through it several times to find all six of your Daily Pokemon.

Changing the date on your Nintendo Switch will not affect the Daily Pokemon in the Great Marsh.

View Pokemon in the Great Marsh with Binoculars

Great Marsh Binoculars

You can view the Pokemon you can encounter in all the areas in the Great Marsh by going to the second floor of the lobby in the building and paying ₽100 to use the binoculars. All 3 Binoculars can scan the entire Great Marsh , so it does not matter which one you choose.

Each time you view the binoculars, you will be shown 5 Pokemon from 5 of the different areas in the Great Marsh. There is a chance that you could view one of your 6 Daily Pokemon from the binoculars. If you do not find any of your Daily Pokemon, you can pay another ₽100 to look through the binoculars again.

List of Great Marsh Binocular Backgrounds

The binoculars will show you Pokemon from 5 random areas of the Great Marsh, so it may be difficult to tell what area you are looking at through the binoculars. You can use this list of binocular backgrounds to find out what area each one corresponds to.

Throwing Ball, Bait, and Mud

Great Marsh Encounter

While scouring for Pokemon in the Great Marsh, encounters inside the area will be different. When engaged in a Pokemon battle, your choices will be Ball, Bait, Mud, and Run.

Throwing Bait at a Pokemon will make the Pokemon more likely to runaway from the encounter, but makes it easier to catch the Pokemon.

On the other hand, throwing Mud at a Pokemon will make it harder to catch , but also decreases the chance that it flees the battle.

Throwing Safari Ball is the safest to catch Pokemon

Simply throwing a Safari Ball is the safest way to catch Pokemon in the Great Marsh, as it does not change any catch or flee rates of the Pokemon you will encounter.

Ride the Train to Travel Between Areas

Great Marsh Train

Ride the train inside the Great Marsh to travel between locations quickly instead of navigating through the bogs and swamps of the areas. The train and the stations can be found in the middle of the Great Marsh.

Avoid Stepping in Bogs

Great Marsh Sinking in Bog

Stepping in the bogs in the swampy areas of the Great Marsh will cause you to sink. You need to move around in order to get out of it, but that movement uses up the limited steps you're allotted inside the area.

Be sure to avoid these bogs to save up on steps, as you are only allowed to take 500 inside the Great Marsh.

Use Sweet Scent to not Waste Steps

BDSP - Use Sweet Scent in the Great Marsh

While in the Great Marsh, you are only allowed to take up to 500 steps before the Safai Game ends. Instead of using those steps to walk around grass patches, you can bring a Pokemon with the move Sweet Scent . While standing in a patch of grass, use Sweet Scent to instantly encounter a Pokemon.

>>10 Yeah, I've confirmed this now, you are not guaranteed to get a post-National Dex daily Pokemon. This makes catching that last one you need all the most obnoxious.

I used the binoculars about 50 times and didn't see a single post-National Dex daily Pokemon. I'm starting to think the Marsh isn't always guaranteed to have one, or the list is wrong.

The First Descendent: How To Beat The Hanged Man (Boss Guide)

Dialogue cut from elden ring dlc proves miquella’s plan was flawed all along, pokémon go fest 2024 habitat schedule & incense spawns.

The Great Marsh is the safari zone of  Pokémon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl , and it is filled with rare Pokémon to catch and items to find. Safari zones in every Pokémon game are essentially mini-games in which players are presented with a limited number of Safari Balls to catch as many Pokémon as possible. Additionally, players are also presented with the challenge of being able to only walk a certain number of steps.

One of the defining features of the Great Marsh in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond  and  Shining Pearl  is the trolley system. The trolley system is a free means of transportation that takes players to various areas of the Great Marsh without costing them any of their limited 500 steps. It's also the easiest way to access Pokémon in certain areas. Once the National Dex is unlocked in Pokémon BDSP , trainers will want to make sure they take full advantage of the trolley system to access more rare Pokémon.

The Great Marsh is located in Pastoria City in  Pokémon Brilliant Diamond  and  Shining Pearl , and it's available at any time. To explore the Great Marsh, players will have to pay 500 Poké Dollars at the entrance counter. Additionally, players can pay another 100 Poké Dollars at the binoculars on the second floor of the same building to see which Pokémon are available in which area. New Pokémon are in the Great Marsh every day, and knowing which ones are located in which area is imperative to catch them all. The Defog HM in Pokémon BDSP is also located in the Great Marsh and is given out by an NPC with green hair to the right of the entrance.

Pokémon Encounters in the Great Marsh in Pokémon BDSP

Although the majority of encounters in the Great Marsh in  Pokémon Brilliant Diamond  and  Shining Pearl  are for common Pokémon like Starly, Bibarel, and Wooper, players can find the rarer encounters rotating daily. Additionally, having fishing rods grants more access to purely aqua-based Pokémon like Magikarp and Barboach. The better the fishing rod players bring with them and use, the better the Pokémon they can catch. With a Super Rod, players can even catch Whiscash, Carvanha, and Gyarados in the Great Marsh. The Super Rod in Pokémon BDSP can be found by speaking with an NPC fisherman on Route 225.

Before receiving the National Dex, players can expect to find the following Pokémon through daily binocular encounters in the Great Marsh:

5 most well-hidden secrets in horror games, ranked, pokemon build-a-bear of popular fire-type starter revealed.

The Safari Zone has been a staple of mainline Pokemon games since the first games released in 1998. Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl continue the tradition, except the designated zone is rebranded as the Great Marsh.

The Great Marsh is similar to many previous Safari Zones, but it has its unique differences in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl . The dedicated area has its own set list of Pokemon that can spawn within all 6 zones. The chances of encountering a specific character changes based on the time of day, whether the National Dex has been acquired, and a randomized potential daily encounter with one character from a binoculars sighting.

RELATED: Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl: Grand Underground Pokemon List

Great Marsh Safari Zone Guide

There are a total of 31 Pokemon that can be caught in the Safari Zone/Great Marsh in Brilliant Diamond and 30 in Shining Pearl, with 8 only catchable after getting the National Dex from Professor Oak after beating the Elite Four . Arbok is exclusive to Brilliant Diamond players.

Trainers will start the Great Marsh Safari Zone after buying 30 Safari Balls and entering the area. They have unlimited time to explore, but the adventure ends when every Pokeball has been thrown, or 500 steps have been reached. Trainers don't battle, but instead must use bait and lure to alter the catch/flee rate. It is highly recommended to just throw a Safari Ball without using any Bait or Lure .

There are 14 Pokemon that can only be encountered after spotting them on the lookout binoculars located on the second floor of the Safari Zone building. This character is randomized daily, and ordinary random catches have the ability to appear in the binoculars for all 6 zones as well. So, there's no guarantee a character that can only be captured after spotting it with the binoculars will actually spawn.

The date/time on the Nintendo Switch can be manipulated (just like time traveling in Animal Crossing: New Horizons ) to simulate a new daily binoculars potential Pokemon encounter.

Safari Zone Pokemon List in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

The following table details the full Safari Zone Pokemon list, along with exactly how to trigger an encounter, and whether they are available before or after getting the National Dex.

Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are out now for Nintendo Switch.

How to Catch Pokémon in Safari Zone

Last Updated: May 21, 2023 References

This article was reviewed by Ishrak . Ishrak is a Gaming & Video Expert specializing in sharing Pokémon and Minecraft videos. With over seven years of gaming and streaming experience, Ishrak has a follower base of over 30,000 YouTube subscribers and over 8 million views. He is also a Pokémon ROM-Hacker and some of his most popular videos highlight tips and advice for people learning how to play Pokémon games. This article has been viewed 114,203 times.

In the Pokémon series of games, Safari Zones are special unique areas in each game where rare Pokémon that don't appear anywhere else in the game can be caught. Safari Zones always operate with different rules than the rest of the game world - instead of battling Pokémon in the wild like you normally would, you'll need to carefully use baits and deterrents to get Pokémon to let down their guards so you can catch them. This can be quite challenging, so knowing the ins and outs of Safari Zone mechanics in each game is vital for success.

Navigating the Safari Zone

Fighting and capturing pokémon.

Step 1 Be aware of the modified combat mechanics for the Safari Zone.

  • Note that the "run away" option functions as normal, so we won't be discussing it.

Step 2 Use bait to make a Pokémon less likely to run.

  • However, using bait will also make the Pokémon more difficult to catch in a safari ball. Thus, striking a balance here can be difficult — the longer you get the Pokémon to stick around for, the harder it will be to actually capture it.

Step 3 Use rocks to make a Pokémon easier to catch.

  • However, there's an important downside: using rocks will also make the Pokémon more likely to run away. In fact, after taking more than a few rocks, a Pokémon is virtually guaranteed to run away — some will exit the battle sooner. Thus, once again, using rocks means striking a delicate balance as you try to capture your Pokémon.

Step 4 Use safari balls to attempt to capture Pokémon.

  • Note that you only have a limited supply of safari balls (depending on the game, usually 30), so save them for Pokémon you want to catch. It's generally the best use of your time to use your safari balls for Pokémon that are only found in the safari zone.

Step 5 In general, go for capture attempts after one or two rock throws.

  • Note that safari balls are weak compared to the pokéballs you can use in the rest of the game. In addition to this, especially rare Safari Zone Pokémon are extra-difficult to catch. [2] X Research source This can lead to some very frustrating situations — for instance, it can easily take 20 or more tries to catch an exceptionally rare Pokémon like Clefairy.

General Tips

Step 1 Use your limited steps carefully.

  • Bulbapedia, an online user-supported Pokémon encyclopedia, has extensive information about each game's Safari Zone, including maps and guides covering where to look for the Pokémon in each zone. See the Bulbapedia Safari Zone article to get started. [3] X Research source
  • Note that there is no step limit in the Safari Zone in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver. [4] X Research source

Step 2 Be prepared to pay the entrance fee.

  • Across all of the games in the series, the entrance fee has stayed the same: 500 P . This includes the Great Marsh in Pokémon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, which is not technically a Safari Zone but behaves very similarly.
  • One smart strategy is to save your game before you enter the Safari Zone. This way, if you don't catch any Pokémon you want, you can re-load to avoid paying the entrance fee again.

Step 3 Consider exploring the math of capture mechanics.

  • As an example of the sort of equation used in the games to determine whether certain Pokémon are captured, consider the equation from the Generation games (Gold and Silver): a = max((3 × HP max - 2 × HP current ) × rate modified / (3 × HP max ), 1) + bonus status where HP max is the Pokémon's maximum HP, HP current is the Pokémon's current HP, rate modified is the catch rate of the Pokémon modified by the ball used (every Pokémon and every ball modifies this in a certain way, and bonus status is the modifier for any status condition (sleep and freeze are 10, all others are 0). [5] X Research source When you throw a ball, a random number between 0 and 255 is generated. If this number is less than or equal to a, the Pokémon is caught.

Catching Pokémon in the Kanto Safari Zone

In the following sections, we'll highlight the rare Pokémon in each Safari zone and give specific advice where applicable. To keep these tables to a reasonable size, we've included only the rarest Pokémon in each area — for exhaustive information, consult the Safari Zone guides at Serebii.net and Bulbapedia.

Catching Pokémon in the Hoenn Safari Zone

Note that the Generation 4 Hoenn Safari Zone (Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire) won't be covered here as the player is allowed to engage in ordinary battles in this zone.

Catching Pokémon in the Sinnoh Great Marsh

Though Sinnoh's Pokémon preserve has a different name, it functions virtually identically to Safari Zones in other regions.

Catching Pokémon in the Johto Safari Zone

Note that the Safari Zone is not available in Generation 2 (Gold/Silver) but is available in the Generation IV games that visit Johto (HeartGold/SoulSilver). Note also that in this Safari Zone the player can arrange the six different areas in any arrangement desired. Finally, many of the areas in the Johto Safari Zones have Pokémon appearance rates that are not yet known — only data for the known areas has been included. See Bulbapedia for more information. [6] X Research source

Expert Q&A

  • Once again, the data in the tables above only deals with the most noteworthy Pokémon in each area. In fact, many more Pokémon appear in each Safari Zone. Thanks Helpful 3 Not Helpful 2
  • Remember — you have a limited number of steps inside the Safari Zone, not a limited amount of time. Thus, you can take as long as you like if you control your movement carefully. Thanks Helpful 1 Not Helpful 3

Does the Pokémon Series Need to Return to Its Roots?

10 best team rocket blast offs in pokémon, pokémon partners with loungefly to unleash new high-end lifestyle collection starring pikachu.

The Pokémon series has a ton of different recurring elements that fans tend to either love or hate depending on the generation. For example, the frequently-present Safari Zone allows trainers to participate in a unique catching mini-game as they track down rare Pokémon. Generation IV's take on the Safari Zone, the Great Marsh, returns in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl 's Pastoria City and remains fairly unchanged from its original incarnation .

With the inclusion of the Grand Undergound's unique biomes and the Pokémon that appear there, the Great Marsh's less-varied Pokémon options may initially make it seem like little more than a fun distraction. However, there's still plenty of reason  to check out Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl 's Safari Zone. With consistent Pokémon between both versions of the game and some notable rare creatures available, here are some things players should keep in mind to make the most out of their next Safari.

How the Great Marsh Works

In addition to limiting trainers to 500 steps and 30 Safari Balls for each visit, the Great Marsh features a unique catching system, as well as unique catch rates for the Pokémon who appear there. Typically, a Pokémon species has a set catch rate that determines how difficult they are to catch in the wild. In the Great Marsh, these numbers are either lowered or raised depending on the species. There's also a unique chance to flee statistic applied to Great Marsh Pokémon, who are not battled and cannot be weakened like other wild Pokémon.

While it is currently unclear if specific numbers have been adjusted for the remakes, in the original Diamond and Pearl , players had the best chance to catch Pokémon if they exclusively threw Safari Balls. While throwing bait or mud may seem useful on paper, players have found that just throwing Safari Balls gives the best chance at catching a Pokémon before they flee. While it may be a bit tedious to just spam a single option, players looking to get some of the rare finds in the Great Marsh should give this strategy a try.

Come with the Right Tools

While players can absolutely jump straight into the Great Marsh as soon as they step foot in Pastoria City, they won't be able to get the most out of the Safari Zone without the right tools. Certain Pokémon require the right field moves and key items to even encounter. Revisiting the Great Marsh with the ability to Surf and use the Super Rod will let trainers catch a far wider variety of Pokémon -- including some that make the Great Marsh worth visiting.

For example, Pokémon like Carvana and Whishcash can only be caught with a Super Rod. Whishcash is especially notable for being a fantastic defensive Pokémon with the always-powerful Water/Ground dual-typing. Having Surf and the Super Rod also opens the player up to the daily rotating Pokémon in water environments, provide even more opportunities and ways to encounter different kinds fo Pokémon.

Use the Binoculars Before Starting a Safari

Knowing which Pokémon are in the daily rotation and where certain ones are located can help players really make the most out of the time limit. To check the entire Great Marsh, players will have to spend 300 Poké Dollars to look through the binoculars on the second floor of the Great Marsh building. Some of these Pokémon really make the Safari worth the time and effort, particularly those who can only her caught here, and checking the binoculars can help players decide whether they should visit or wait for another day.

Keep an Eye Out for Useful Items

Long-time Pokémon fans will know that, wherever there's a Safari Zone, there are important items hidden inside. The Great Marsh in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl is no different, as players can find some rare and unique items if they take the time to explore each zone. One of the Great Marsh's most important finds is the TM for Defog, a former HM move that greatly helps players traverse Route 210 and reach Celestic Town.

Outside of that, players can also find a Rare Candy, various Poké Balls, nuggets and different kinds of healing items scattered around the various areas. There's also a Toxic Plate located in Area 2 for players looking to collect every kind of plate in the game, plus various items that can be sold for Poké Dollars. It should be noted that Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl features  Diamond and Pearl 's item layout, not Platinum 's.

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl: Great Marsh daily spawns explained and whether to throw bait or mud

Everything you need to know about how the Great Marsh works.

The Great Marsh is Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl's equivalent to the Safari Zone, allowing you to catch some rare and unusual Pokémon - and pick up some essential items - as you explore its six areas. It also follows on from Pastoria City in your adventure, and our Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl walkthrough .

Below we'll explain how the Great Marsh works, including how daily spawns work and where to get any key items on your first visit - and what to do and where to go next if you've come here from our walkthrough guide.

On this page:

Great Marsh explained: how daily spawns work

Should you use bait or mud in the great marsh, great marsh pokémon and item locations.

The Great Marsh is a Safari Zone-like area in Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, accessed via Pastoria City, which is split into six areas with a tram in the centre that will take you to each of them, saving you the walk.

Each entrance to the Great Marsh costs 500 Pokémon Dollars, and you get a limited amount of time in there, measured by the number of steps you take when walking, running, or cycling. That means using the tram is essential if you want to go to some of the deeper areas of the marsh and still have enough steps left over to walk around chasing Pokémon and collecting items.

pokemon pearl safari zone

There's also one central mechanic here that works differently to anywhere else: rare, rotating daily spawns. Here's how that works.

How daily spawns work

Before you acquire the National Pokédex, there are eight special Pokémon spawns that can only occur in the Great Marsh via this method. Each day, an unknown number of them will spawn in the Great Marsh, and those that spawn will be set to only appear in a specific Area (there are six in total).

To find out which rare daily spawn Pokémon are spawning where, you can use the binoculars on the upper floor of the entrance building of the Great Marsh, which cost 100 Pokémon Dollars each time you use them. These do not change the spawns, and you do not need to use them in order for the spawns to appear (we've personally verified this). The binoculars are just a method to help you locate which Area the Pokémon you're after is spawning in that day, so you can head there and run around in the long grass until it appears.

The binoculars, meanwhile, can show any Pokémon that spawns in that area. So, for example: looking through one pair might show Area 1, with a Bibarel. This does not necessarily mean that there are no rare Pokémon spawning in Area 1! Keep re-using those binoculars and it might eventually show a Carnivine, for instance, is also spawning in Area 1 that day.

Below are the rare spawns that can appear. Note that several of these Pokémon, such as Roselia, are catchable elsewhere, while Skorupi for instance can be caught in Pokémon Hideaways in the Grand Underground . Again, several (more than one in total, but possibly less than one for all six Areas at once) can spawn per day, and you don't need to use the binoculars to trigger the spawns.

Rotating Daily Spawn Pokémon

Note that after you get the National Pokédex, another handful of new Pokémon are able to spawn here as Rotating Daily Spawns.

Whether to use Bait or Mud depends on two things: what effect you want, and whether you like to gamble or play things safe.

For starters, let's explain the basics: in the Great Marsh you can't battle or weaken Pokémon, you just find them and get presented with four options: throw a ball, throw Mud, throw Bait, or run away from the battle. Throwing both Bait and Mud has two effects.

  • Bait - increases the chance of Pokémon fleeing; increases the chance of you successfully catching it with a ball.
  • Mud - decreases the chance of a Pokémon fleeing; decreases the chance of you successfully catching it with a ball.

It might sound backwards, given the word "bait" is used by the game, but basically: throw Mud at Pokémon you don't want to run away. Throw Bait if you want to gamble on them running before you've even had a chance to throw a ball.

Aside from those new mechanics, the Great Marsh is also a location that you'll need to pass through on your journey through Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl's main story.

With that in mind, here are the spawns and items in each Area of the Great Marsh, so you can collect absolutely everything you want.

Available Pokémon (standard wild spawns in all all Areas)

Here are what the areas look like for reference. Area 1 is listed first in these images, and is the back left in-game. Area 2 is back-right in the game. Area 3 is middle-left. Area 4 is middle-right. Area 5 is bottom-left. Area 6 is bottom-right.

If you've collected everything you want here - the main thing is to get Defog for your Pokétch by talking to the Ace Trainer as soon as you enter! - then that's you sorted in terms of main story progress, and it's on to the next objective. Head back to our page of Pastoria City and take on the Gym if you haven't already, or skip to the "After defeating Gym Leader Crasher Wake" section on that page if you already have!

How does the Great Marsh work in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

Image of Aden Carter

The Great Marsh is the Safari-Zone style area in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. This location is where you can go to find rare wild Pokemon (along with a few other items). You will be able to access the Great Marsh after reaching Pastoria City. It is located in the northern section of the city and will cost you 500 dollars to enter.

pokemon pearl safari zone

Before entering the Great Marsh, use the stairs to go up to the second floor of the building and use the telescopes. Each use of one will cost you 100 dollars, but it will also reveal the locations of some of the Pokemon found throughout the area. If you are looking for a specific Pokemon, you will want to check these out.

You can find the following Pokemon throughout the Great Marsh:

pokemon pearl safari zone

When you enter the Great Marsh, you will be given 30 Safari Balls. Like previous games that feature the Safari Zone, when you encounter a Pokemon, you will be given the option to throw a Safari Ball, throw bait, throw mud, or run. Once you run out of Safari Balls, your time in the Great Marsh will be over.

While inside the Great Marsh, be sure to talk with the NPC to the right of the entrance to obtain the TM Defog. This TM allows you to clear out foggy areas later in the game. You can also use the tram in the center of the Great Marsh to easily travel between the four areas.
