How to Find and Catch Starters in Pokemon Indigo Disk

You can start encountering Starter Pokemon by donating BP to the Terarium Club at the computer in the League’s Club Room. The computer will be unlocked after battling Carmine at the Central Area. Access is and search for the donations with the “Boost biodiversity in the X Biome!” descriptions.

BP is earned by completing Blueberry Quests (BBQs) all around the Terarium. Each donation costs 3,000 BP and you have to do it four times, requiring a total of 12,000 BP. Bringing all starters to the Terarium fields is one of the endgame goals in the DLC, so be ready to spend some good hours for that.

The new diversity brought to these biomes includes all of the Generations I through VIII’s starter Pokemon lines, and you can freely catch them to your delight. They’re rare spawns compared to others, but this is nothing that some eating some encounter-boosting sandwiches can’t handle. However, Paldea starters cannot be found here and the only way to them is still by trading or breeding.
