How to Beat Morimoto in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl? 

First things first, you would be able to lock horns with Morimoto once you complete the campaign missions of either Pokemon Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl. Morimoto can be located near the pool in the Hotel Grand Lake located on Route 213. To get started, you would need to start a conversation with his NPC model. 

Morimoto’s Pokemon Team

The Pokemon team of Morimoto is quite unique and varied at a surprisingly high level, somewhere between level 63 and level 65, so you will need to make sure to bring your best Pokemon squad in this fight to stand a chance to go past Morimoto. In addition your Pokemon squad might have a diverse ability draft including those with Ghost/Dark, Normal, Ground, Water, Electric and Fire Pokemon.

Upon defeating Morimoto you will get the Oval Charm, which would increase your chance of finding more pokemon Eggs in the Nursery, helping you breed them faster than before. If you’re not into breeding your pokemons in the nursery, you would need to defeat Morimoto anyways.
