How to Get Rare Pokemon Statues in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
Pokemon Statues are rare items you can find while digging in the Grand Underground. When placed in your Secret Base, the encounter rate of specific types of Pokemon increases. Because of the usefulness of Pokemon Statues, it is worth taking the time to dig for them in the Grand Underground when you want a break from adventuring.
Increasing the Chances of Getting Pokemon Statues from Digging
When walking around the various areas of the Grand Underground, you will sometimes spot roaming Diglett and Dugtrio at the passageways leading to the different Pokemon hideaways. These Pokemon will leave sparkling or glowing trails when they disappear. When you see these, approach them to obtain a digging chance bonus.

To easily accumulate digging bonuses, exit and re-enter the passages connecting Pokemon hideaways to make Diglet and Dugtrio constantly spawn. The amount of bonuses you have accumulated is indicated on the left side of the screen, just below the map.
Upon collecting up to +40 digging bonus, you will stand the best chance of obtaining rare Pokemon Statues while digging in the Grand Underground. Note that this also increases the chance of encountering Shiny Pokemon in the area.
