Super Rod

In the water, Wild Pokémon can be caught in one of two ways. The first is by Surfing along the surface. The second, is by fishing.

Both methods have their own exclusive Pokémon that can only be caught in that way, but there are select Pokémon that can only be caught by using the best rod of them all: the Super Rod.

The Super Rod has been a staple in the Pokémon series since Generation I as the best fishing rod obtainable, and that isn't going to change any time soon!


Locations Found


A fishing guru lives in a house on Route 12, which is known as a great fishing spot. Talk to him in Red, Blue, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Crystal, Fire Red, Leaf Green, Heart Gold and Soul Silver to get the Super Rod.


A fisherman in Mossdeep City will give you the Super Rod in Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. In the Generation III titles it takes multiple well-timed button presses to reel in the hooked Pokémon or else it will get away.


The Super Rod isn't obtainable until after you've defeated the Elite Four, as it can be found by talking to a Fishing Guru at the Fight Area in Diamond, Pearl and Platinum.


The Super Rod is given to the player in Nuvema Town in Black, White, Black 2 and White 2, but by different characters in each set of games. In Black and White the Super Rod is given to the player from Looker, whereas Cedric gives the Super Rod to the player in Black 2 and White 2.

The Super Rod is the only fishing rod that appears in Generation V; the Old Rod and Good Rod do not appear in these games.


A Fishing Maniac will give the player the Super Rod on Route 16 in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y.
