There are a number of held items that Pokémon can use to their advantage in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. From common items like berries to more advanced items like the King’s Rock, players have their pick of the litter. However, players often need to find the specific held item they’re looking for before they can think about giving it to one of their Pokémon. 

In Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, all of players’ favourite held items are back but they’ll take some work to get. This is apparent when trying to find the Choice Specs, which is a held item that boosts a Pokémon’s Sp. Attack stat. 

For an exact guide on where to find the Choice Specs, players can keep reading below.

To begin, you’ll need to have access to Celestic Town, which unlocks once you’ve gotten the Secret Medicine from Cynthia. This allows you to get past the group of Psyduck north of Solaceon Town and advance past the route that requires the use of Defog

Once in Celestic Town, you’ll want to go to the northwest of town. Here, a house with a woman behind a desk and a man to the left of the desk will be present. You’ll want to speak with the man on the left to receive the Choice Specs.

However, this comes with an exception. You can only receive the Choice Specs if you go to the man before 10 am on your Nintendo Switch internal clock. This also needs to be after nighttime has passed. If you try to visit the man during the thick of night, then he’ll give you the Wise Glasses instead. If you go after 10 am, then you’ll receive the Black Glasses. 

The Choice Specs boosts a Pokémon’s Sp. Attack stat by 50%, so it’s a great item to use on a special attacker in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
