This page lists the names of all the NPCs your must talk to in the Grand Underground in order to complete the Spiritomb quest in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl (BDSP).

(1 of 2) These NPCs will have a name above their text box.

These NPCs will have a name above their text box. (left), On top of that, they'll shout their name at you, so they're difficult to miss. (right)

The NPCs spawn randomly inside the Grand Underground. You must talk to 32 of the 35 unique NPCs in order to complete the quest requirements.


This is an example of a "strip".

Each NPC has a higher chance of spawning in a given “strip”. A strip is defined as all the tunnels before reaching a loading zone (or in other words, a Hideaway).

However, on rare occasions (around 10% chance), a different NPC than what’s listed may spawn in the strip instead.

How to Quickly Cycle NPCs

If you’re dedicated, you can take advantage of the slight randomness of NPCs to try and find NPCs who generally appear in strips found later in the game.

Choose one of the two paths shown here.

First, find a strip that’s small in size. We recommend the strip on the left or right side of Sunlit Cavern. You can quickly reach the right strip by going underground from Route 207.

Let’s say you take the right strip. As it happens, the NPC (Leticia) will always spawn somewhere around the two small, looped pathways near the entrances to Sunlit Cavern. So you can do a figure-eight lap until you find the NPC.

Once you’ve found the NPC, enter the nearest Hideaway, then return to the same strip. The position and identity of the NPC may change. You can then do another lap to find the NPC and hope it’s a different one. More often than not, it’ll be the one that’s usually there, but you can always hope!
