As players of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl continue to make progress in the new game, a few may be wondering how to evolve their Nosepass into Probopass. This guide will provide the information needed in order to get Probopass.

Nosepass is a rock-type Pokémon and evolves into Probopass, a steel and rock-type Pokémon. This makes them weak to several types including fire, water, grass, fighting, ground and more.

As many could tell by the name, these Pokémon are known for its large, nose-shaped appearance. Nosepass and Probopass were introduced with the Generation III Pokémon.

Surprisingly, evolving Nosepass is fairly simple. After catching Nosepass, leveling it up through battle or with a rare candy on Mt. Coronet will evolve it into Probopass. Nosepass can only be evolved in a special magnetic field, similar to Magneton.

Evolving Nosepass into Probopass may take some time but is quite simple. Players of Pokémon BD/SP have noticed though that catching Nosepass in the game poses a greater challenge.

Nosepass can only be caught once players have completed the game. This includes beating the Elite Four, seeing every Pokémon in the Sinnoh region and unlocking the National Dex. Even after this, finding Nosepass is random chance and requires a bit of luck.

Players will have to return to Sandgem Town and talk to Dawn or Lucas' little sister. If she mentions that she has seen a Nosepass passing by, only then is there a chance for players to find and catch the Pokémon.
