Walking around isn’t the quickest way to travel This guide on How To Run & Sprint In Pokemon Brilliant Diamond And Shining Pearl will tell you how you can unlock the ability to sprint as if you’ve not played the original versions of Diamond & Pearl, you may be unfamiliar with how to learn sprinting.

If you’re anything like me, you were curious on the way to the lake, trying to find out how you can move faster so you can progress through the traditionally dull start of a Pokemon game. Worry not, there isn’t a specific button or configuration you’re missing, you have to unlock the ability to run faster.

This is done by finding a specific item, Running Shoes. They are unlocked the same way in both Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Unlocking these shoes is very quick, your mother has them. You need to visit the lake with your friend and then find the professor and his aid there. You will get ambushed by Pokemon and then choose your starting Pokemon.

Once the battle is over your friend will tell you to return to town. Head back home and speak with your mother. She informs you that you need to travel to the next town in order to explain to the professor why you had to use his Pokemon. At this point, she gives you the Running Shoes. You can now run and sprint.

It’s automatic. You don’t need to equip them or hold a button. Once you have the Running Shoes unlocked, you can begin sprinting immediately.
