Pokemon BDSP Nursery Location Guide

Daycare in Pokemon games is used to breed Pokemon and make them stronger. In Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, the Pokemon Daycare has been renamed to Nursery. In this guide, we will provide you with the location of the Nursery in Pokemon BDSP and how to use the features it offers.

Pokemon BDSP Nursery Location

A nursery or nursery in any Pokémon game is a place where trainers come to breed stronger Pokémon. There is also a nursery in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and we will help you locate it.

Where is the daycare in Pokemon BDSP

Previous titles in the Pokémon series had daycare centers where trainers left their existing Pokémon for a period of time and that Pokémon got better by staying there.

There are no day care centers in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, so players cannot use this method to upgrade the Pokemon in their arsenal. Day care centers have been replaced by nurseries.

To find the Pokémon Nursery in BDSP, you need to go to the south of Solaceon town and head to the Pokémon Center.

You should be able to spot the nursery on the other side of the Pokémon Center. It’s right in front of the Pokemon Center, and there’s an old dude standing outside.

Features and restrictions of the nursery

Trainers can come in and leave Pokémon at the nursery to hatch them and evolve into stronger, more reliable Pokémon in battle.

In order for this to happen, players need to collect high IV idems and then leave them with the Pokemon they wish to breed.

When your egg is ready, the old man outside the nursery will change positions, which means your egg is ready. The nursery will eventually contact you and give you an egg.


In Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, if any of the mated Pokemon is a Ditto, the offspring will always be the same species as the mother.

When a Ditto companion produces an egg, the egg will always be the species of the second Pokémon, whether male or female. Otherwise, in order to reproduce, both Pokémon must be from the same group of eggs.

A Ditto knot must be given to a Ditto with high IVs so that they can pass five to their offspring, with the sixth IV statistic provided by the other parent.

In Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, the Destiny Knot is an item that allows the Pokemon that squeezes it to randomly pass five of its six IV stats to its offspring.

In order to pass on its nature to its offspring, the parent Pokémon needs an Everstone. In most situations, the non-Ditto partner should be the one wearing the Everstone while they are in the nursery.

The parent Pokémon can also pass some of its movements to its offspring during reproduction; these movements are known as egg movements.

Other than that, parent Pokémon can pass on some of their abilities to their offspring, especially female Pokémon.

They have a 60% probability of passing their skills on to their offspring, which is a bit higher than males. They have the same probability of passing hidden abilities to their offspring.

Hatch the egg

Some of the Pokemon Eggs you get from the Nursery will require you to walk or cycle a certain number of steps before the egg is ready to hatch.

To facilitate this process, the nursery is placed in a place very close to a highway. Just hop on Route 209 and walk or cycle to Route 210 until your egg is ready to hatch.

Additionally, any egg in a reproducible group can hatch faster if a Pokémon with the Body of Flame ability is in the game while traveling with one or more eggs.

Egg groups

In Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, there are 15 separate egg groups and each Pokemon belongs to at least one of them. The 15 different groups of Pokémon eggs are:

  • Group of monsters: Pokémon that look like dinosaurs or fictional animals that can stand on two legs while balancing their tails.
  • Water group 1: Pokémon commonly found on land and in water.
  • Water group 2: Pokémon that look like fish.
  • Water group 3: Pokémon symbolizing aquatic or semi-aquatic invertebrates.
  • Bug group: Pokémon with appearances of bugs or bugs.
  • Flight group: Pokémon that generally look like birds.
  • Group of controls: Ground Pokémon.
  • Group of fairies: Pokémon that are considered cute and pretty.
  • Grass group: Pokémon with plant appearances like Turtwig and Cherubi.
  • Human group: Pokémon that most closely resemble humans.
  • Mineral Group: Pokemon which symbolizes inorganic substances like rocks and metal.
  • Same as Group: In Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, a group of eggs that only includes Ditto.
  • Amorphous group: Ghost-type Pokémon that does not have a solid form.
  • Group of dragons: Pokémon that look like dragons and dinosaurs like Charizard
  • Undiscovered group: Pokémon that cannot reproduce.
