Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are now on sale on Switch, and players all over the world have begun their journey back to Sinnoh region. As with all mainline Pokémon games, beginners have just entered Pokémon BDSP and have three Pokémon, which you can choose early in the journey.
This is a choice you can't change. Normally you can't catch the other two novice Pokémon, so this is a big decision, but which is the best entry-level Pokémon? In fact, there is only one choice in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, but it is not without some shortcomings.
Which is the best Pokémon for beginners?
Chimchar is a fire-fighting starter, which is almost indispensable for completing the game in the original 4th generation game. In the original 4th generation game, Chimchar was one of the only two types of fire you might encounter after the game, which caused you to be stuck by Ponyta if you didn’t choose Fire Monkey, or there would be no fire. Type in the situation.
Fortunately, in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, the lack of fire has been repaired, but few people have been hit so hard like Chimchar, or can get such a wide range of moves.
Among Pokémon BDSP, Chimchar is a good choice. Its final evolution, Infernape, has many advantages, but it is not without flaws. Infernape's defense is low, and it is weak against water, ground, flying, and psychic systems. It does have a good attack attribute that makes it a bit like a glass cannon, so there must be a place for it in your team, but you must surround it with a stronger Pokémon to make the most of it. It can also learn a variety of elements to attack with heavy punches, which is incredible for making up for the weakness of the team, which is indispensable in the late game.
Chimchar's second evolution, Monferno, Chimchar will evolve into and learn fighting type moves at level 14. Mach Punch will dominate the first gym, which is a rock type. The second gym is a grass type and has a similar breeze. You rarely need to switch from your beginner.
In the latter part of the game, you will meet the sixth gym, which is a steel type, and by then you should have hell. The combination of Infernape firepower and fighting action will make this gym extremely simple. The same can be said for the next gym, which is ice type. You will also easily pass the first of Elite 4, and its buggy Pokémon will not have a chance to fight Infernape.
Excellent mobile pool, type advantage against a large number of trainers and high attack power make Chimchar the best choice for beginners in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, but no Pokémon is perfect.
What should beginners pay attention to?
In fact, which Pokémon to start is not the most important thing. Later you will get more Pokémon. In the game, many legendary Pokémon and Shiny BDSP Pokemon are the goals pursued by many players.

In addition, Pokemon BDSP Held Items are also very important to players and can be of great help to your Pokémon. I hope you have fun in the game. If you have any questions, you can ask me for help.
