There are two main ways to get Heart Scale in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl.

  • Getting from Luvdisc
  • Digging from Grand Underground


Luvdisc has a 50% chance to hold a Heart Scale when you encounter it in the wild. Thus when you catch two of them you are guaranteed to get at least 1 heart scale. Things get better if you teach your Pokemon moves like Covet or Thief. Covet is a normal type move that steals the target’s held item. While Thief is a Dark-type move that attacks and steals the target’s held item. Both of them are excellent ways to get Heart Scales from a Luvdisc without catching one.

Alternatively, you can also dig the Grand Underground to get Heart Scales in this game. The chances of you getting it by digging are very low when you compare it to getting one from a Luvdisc. But it is a method that you can use nonetheless.

How to Farm Heart Scale


The best way to farm Heart Scale is by stealing them from Luvdisc or catching them.

  1. Go to Route 224 and use a Super Rod.
  2. This will help you encounter Luvdisc.
  3. Then use a Pokemon that knows the moves Thief or Covet. Make sure the Pokemon using those moves isn’t already holding a Heart scale or any other item. As they won’t be able to steal if they already have a held item.
