Iron Island is known for several things in Pokémon Sparkling Diamond and Sparkling Pearl. However, the island is perhaps best known for the Egg of Riolu which players can receive once they complete the mini-quest with the sole resident of the location.

The problem with Iron Island for some players is that it's not a mandatory place to visit. This means that the game does not integrate players into the story, which makes it difficult for some players to find it. If you fall into this crowd, you can read the guide below to find out exactly how to get to Iron Island.

The only condition you need to reach Iron Island is to go to Canalave City. It is the home of the sixth Gym Leader, Byron, and can be reached by surfing west from Jubilife City.

Once in Canalave City, you will have to face your rival on the bridge that connects the east and west sides of the city. After that, continue past the gymnasium and find the sailor in front of the ship. Talk to the sailor and he will ask you where you want to set sail. Obviously you want to click on the option that says Iron Island.

After that, you will embark for Iron Island. Here you can meet Riley, who gives you an egg containing Riolu. It's also a great place to train Water-, Grass-, Fighting-, Ground-, and Ice-type Pokémon before facing Byron.
