Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shiny Pearl Poketch Guide

The Pokemon Watch or the Poketch as it is more commonly known is an electronic feature in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl that has plenty of useful apps that you can use during your adventure. This Poketch guide will tell you everything you need to know about this device.

The Poktetch are watches with touchscreens which you can click to access HMs (Hidden Moves) and apps such as a Step Counter (useful for egg hatching), a Party menu, a Friendship Checker, a Hidden Moves menu, an Item Finder, and even a Marking Map. Unlike 2006's Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl the Poketch in the 2021 remakes Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl is more essential as it is how trainers quickly access HMs (Hidden Moves).

You will be able to get a Poketch early in both Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl when you reach Jubilife City which you can get to by making your way through Route 202 when you leave Twinleaf Town. The following steps will tell you what to do once you are in Jubilife City in order to receive the Poketch.

Step 1:
Make your way to the Trainers School to find Barry, your childhood friend and rival. The Trainers School is located left of the Pokemon Center.

Step 2:
Give Barry the Parcel that his mom gave you in order to recieve a Town Map in return.

Step 3:
Head to the center of Jubilife City once you have the map so that you are approached by the head of the Poketch company. The owner will then ask you to bring him three coupons from three clowns scattered around the city.

Step 4:
Search for the three clowns and answer each of their quiz corrections correctly to get their coupon. See below for the whereabouts of each clown and the answer to their questions.

Step 5:
When you return to the center of Jubilife City with the three coupons and hand them to the owner of the Poketch company you will recieve the Poketch watch.
