There are several ways players can stumble when trying to complete their National Dex in Pokémon Sparkling Diamond and Sparkling Pearl. From not knowing how to evolve a certain Pokémon to being unable to find a specific 'mon, the journey to complete the entire Pokédex in Sinnoh is a tough one.

One of those Pokémon that could make life difficult for those players is Clamper. The Pokémon shell is not commonly found in Sparkling Diamond and Sparkling Pearl and has proven to be a rare encounter in the locations it is found. However, if players read the guide below, they will be catching a Clampl in no time.

To start, you will obviously need the National Dex. This is received after seeing all 150 Pokémon in the Sinnoh Dex.

With that out of the way, you can head to the Great Underground and start searching the following caves to find Camperl:

  • Fountain Footprint Cave
  • shore cave
  • Cavern of Calm Waters

Clamperl has a rare chance of spawning inside these caves, so you may need to exit and re-enter multiple times to encounter the Pokémon.

If you don't want to venture underground, you can try your luck fishing. You'll need the Super Rod to encounter Clamperl this way, which is given to you in the Pokémon Sparkle Diamond and Sparkle Pearl postgame. You can talk to a fisherman in the combat area to receive it.

With the Super Rod you can fish on routes 219 and 221. The chance of encountering Clamperl here is very rare, so be prepared to keep your rod out for a while.


Once you have a Clampl, you can transform it into a Huntail or a Gorebyss by using two different items and then swapping it. So keep that in mind if you plan on using any of these Pokemon for your Battle Tower battles.
